Dana White says Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz will BOTH be punished for their roles in the UFC 202 bottle fight … and says someone who was struck at the event is already planning a lawsuit. 

The UFC prez joined the guys on the “TMZ Sports” TV show (airs Thursday on FS1) — and we asked if the fighters will be reprimanded for the incident, in which a child was allegedly hit with a projectile. 

“They’re both getting punished,” White says. 

“What everybody’s gotta understand is .. we’re overseen by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. I guarantee both of these guys will get massive fines. And there’s probably gonna be a hearing too after the fight.”

White says both guys could be hit with suspensions and community service — “It’s gonna be ugly.”

“And the word is that in this thing, somebody was injured. So, there’s gonna be a lawsuit … who knows how it’s gonna play out.”

White didn’t say who is filing the suit — but says “the wheels are in motion on it.”

There’s A LOT more in the entire interview, which airs tonight on FS1. Don’t miss it.
