TMZ interviewed UFC President about tonight's UFC 202 fight between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz, as seen in the video above. When asked about the melee between McGregor and Diaz at a UFC 202 press conference earlier this week, White said that both men will be punished and that there's going to be a hearing.

"It got bad," White admitted. "We're overseen by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. I guarantee you that both of these guys are going to get massive fines and there's probably going to be a hearing too after the fight. There could be suspensions, community service... it's going to be ugly."

White said that somebody's filing a lawsuit after getting injured during the incident and that "all the wheels are in motion over it."

White was asked if the emotions were real. He said that it was 100% real, and that if it were staged, they wouldn't throw water bottles across the room because it's one "of the dumbest" things you can come up with. He said that the incident will cost both fighters a lot of money and "headache and hassle," and that they're both "in big trouble."
