Nate Diaz has settled a complaint filed the Nevada State Athletic Commission for his role in the bottle-throwing incident at the UFC 202 pre-fight press conference.

Per ESPN’s Brett Okamoto:

Diaz apologized for the incident in his Answer to the NSAC Complaint.  He did state that he “lightly tossed a half empty plastic water bottle in the direction of his opponent [McGregor] without the intent to strike anyone and, in fact, the bottle did not strike anyone.”   He had requested community service or suspension in lieu of monetary penalty.

Payout Perspective:

The settlement agreement does not include a suspension but a $50,000 fine which is similar to the amount given to Conor McGregor with the exception that McGregor must do a public service announcement.  The settlement saves Diaz from further legal issues related to the incident.
