Judicial Review is the legal tool available to fighters who feel wronged by the actions of an Athletic Commission.
Conor McGregor, who after a press conference incident was fined $75,000, ordered to produce a a video with a “minimum value” of $75,000 containing an anti-bullying or anti-drug message, conduct 50 hours of community service with an anti-bullying or anti-drug message and pay legal fees to the Nevada Athletic Commission of $4,288.12 is one fighter who feels wronged.
McGregor has filed a petition for judicial review. In the petition McGregor argues that the NAC’s order “violates constitutional or statutory provisions; is in excess of the statutory authority of the agency, was made upon unlawful procedure, was affected by other error of law, was clearly erroneous in view of the reliable, probative and substantial evidence on the whole of the record or was arbitrary or capricious or characterized by abuse of discretion”
