McGregor Settles UFC 202 Lawsuit
Following the resolution of a traffic issue, Conor McGregor would settle another legal battle this week, this one stemming from a chaotic UFC 202 press conference.
McGregor would settle a complaint with security guard William Pegg, who would dismiss a civil case against McGregor on Monday that claimed McGregor hit him with an energy drink can.
Pegg dismissed his complaint in Nevada federal court, noting that both sides had reached a settlement, after Pegg would sue McGregor for $95,000, $5,000 in medical bills, and $90,000 from McGregor’s $15 million UFC 202 payday.
The legal battle would be moved from civil court to federal court, where McGregor’s lawyers attempted to keep the former two-division champion’s financial records private, after attempts by Pegg’s attorneys to get McGergor on the stand.
After an attempt to bide more time in October, McGregor’s legal team announced that they’ve reached a settlement, with both sides paying attorney fees.
