UFC superstar Conor McGregor is now officially eligible to apply for a boxing licence from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), paving the way for a potential fight with Floyd Mayweather.

During a press conference for his rematch with Nate Diaz at UFC 202 last year, both fighters were involved in melee and threw bottles of water and cans at each other.

Initially the NSAC handed down a fine of $75,000 to the Irishman, alongside 50 hours of community service. He requested a reduction to the punishment, which was approved by the Commission and lowered to a $25,000 fine and 25 hours of community service.
