Boxing superstar Floyd 'Money' Mayweather and UFC champion, Conor McGregor trash talk one another ahead of their multi-million dollar bout.

Las Vegas - UFC star Conor McGregor has completed the 25 hours of community service imposed by Nevada officials following a profanity-laced, bottle-throwing fracas with a rival during a pre-fight news conference last year in Las Vegas.

A document obtained by The Associated Press shows McGregor talked with children and teenagers in Dublin about "physical and verbal bullying."

The Nevada State Athletic Commission disciplined McGregor and Nate Diaz after the men and members of their groups yelled at each other and eventually hurled water bottles at an August 17 press conference.

It is unknown whether McGregor will be disciplined again.

He and Floyd Mayweather exchanged racially insensitive and homophobic remarks during events held this month promoting their upcoming fight.

The commission did not immediately respond to requests for comment regarding any potential disciplinary action against McGregor and Mayweather.
