CONOR MCGREGOR’S NEXT fight looks set to take place in the courtroom rather than the Octagon.

The UFC lightweight champion is reportedly ready to open an appeal against the $75,000 fine handed down to him by the Nevada State Athletic Commission earlier this year.

The NSAC punished McGregor for throwing a water bottle when his August press conference with Nate Diaz boiled over, insisting that the Notorious perform 50 hours of community service and make a public service announcement as well as taking a slice of his fight purse.

McGregor wished the NSAC “good luck trying to get it” at the time, and MMAjunkie reported on Wednesday night that he has now filed a notice for judicial review with Clark County civil court.

No date for the hearing has been set.

McGregor made history last month as the first simultaneous UFC champion in two weight divisions but was stripped of his featherweight title soon afterwards. He is expected to take a break from fighting until late 2017 while he and partner Dee Devlin await the birth of their first child.
