Lundvall’s term on NSAC coming to end

October 23, 2016

MMA Fighting reports that Pat Lundvall’s appointment on the Nevada Athletic Commission will end at the end of October.  Lundvall has served for a total of 9 years for the commission.

Lundvall, an attorney in Nevada, has been in a central figure in some of the more recent discipline hearings before the commission.  Most recently, she was a factor in the discipline hearing involving Conor McGregor.  Instead of accepting a recommendation from the state attorney general of a $25,000 fine and community service, Lundvall motioned for a $150,000 penalty which included the value of a public service announcement (PSA)which McGregor was ordered to film.

After initial reports that the fine was for $150,000, it was clarified that the amount was $75,000 and the value of the PSA was $75,000.

Lundvall was also a central commissioner in the hearing of Nick Diaz in which he was assessed a 5 year ban which was eventually reduced.

Payout Perspective:

Lundvall’s departure will be met with a sigh of relief by some within the MMA community as some of the decisions spearheaded by Lundvall seemed punitive and without much rationale behind them.  The Diaz punishment comes to mind.  Even McGregor’s punishment seemed out of ordinary and it appeared that it was done to show the commission’s muscle rather than anything else.

    I wish I could believe that things will improve, but I think the problem with the commission goes beyond one person.

Got something to say?
