Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor's entourages have been dealt a reminder about their behaviour during fight week.
McGregor paid a reduced fine of $25,000 to the Nevada State Athletic Commission earlier this year relating to a chaotic press conference with UFC rival Nate Diaz in which plastic bottles were thrown.
Mayweather has also appeared before the NSAC - most recently, in 2014, he was forced to prove the safety of sparring sessions in his gym before fighting Marcos Maidana.
"It wouldn't be in [Mayweather and McGregor's] best interest to put their hands on each other, and they both know that," NSAC chief Bob Bennett exclusively told Sky Sports.
"Both of them are professionals that know the repercussions from inappropriate behaviour. I don't expect either one of them to get into any physical altercation. They are supreme athletes that know the rules and regulations."
Mayweather and McGregor are expected to come face-to-face in Las Vegas for the first time this week on Wednesday at the pre-fight press conference.
