Well, that’s one less thing to worry about if you’re hoping to see a Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor bout.

Conor McGregor is now cleared to apply for a boxing license in Nevada after settling his outstanding issues with the Nevada State Athletic Commission. McGregor had been fined $150,000 for a bottle throwing incident last October but opted to challenge the fine as opposed to settling the bill right away.

In the end that appears to have been a prudent move as McGregor’s fine was drastically reduced to $25,000 during an appeal hearing this week. So with McGregor all squared away with the commission at this point, it paves the way for him to apply for a boxing license within the state — Mayweather’s demanded fight location.

NSAC officials reportedly told WBN last month that McGregor would likely be granted a boxing license once his situation was resolved, which means Mayweather-McGregor just took one step forward.

Mayweather has called for his fight with McGregor to happen this summer.
