Quote :
UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was fined $50,000 as a result of the brawl that took place between he and Daniel Cormier at an August 4, 2014 press event to promote UFC 178. Representatives of the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) unanimously approved the punishment at a Tuesday commission meeting in Las Vegas.

In addition to the fine, Jones will be required to complete 40 hours of community service in Las Vegas.

Jones and Cormier collided during a staredown photo opportunity in the lobby of the MGM Grand Garden Hotel and Casino. Video of the brawl quickly went viral.

Appearing before the commission on Tuesday, Jones apologized for his actions and further stated that he lost his Nike sponsorship

Completely fitting if you ask me. What do you guys think about the punishment? Should he have also received a suspension?
