Fighter Sues McGregor For Bus Attack
Five months after Conor McGregor and a dozen associates attacked a UFC team bus at UFC 223 media day, and just under two months following the end of McGregor’s issues with the New York Courts, the first civil suit has been filed.
Michael Chiesa, who would not only be pulled from his UFC 223 fight with Anthony Pettis, would suffer cuts to his face and body due to McGregor throwing a hand truck through a bus window.
According to the lawsuit filed in state court in New York, Chiesa claimed that he suffered “severe emotional distress, mental trauma and/or bodily harm.”
Chiesa is suing McGregor for assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
The site of UFC 223 and its fight week events, Barclays Center is also listed in the suit, with the UFC fighter claiming they failed “to engage in proper security measures to protect the plaintiff and other patrons.”
Chiesa has not specified the amount he is seeking from both McGregor and the venue but has listed the money he lost out on from missing UFC 223, as damages.
