McGregor Settles UFC 202 Presser Lawsuit
One of Conor McGregor’s legal issues has been settled this week, as he reached a settlement with a security guard for an incident at a press conference for UFC 202.
The suit was brought following McGregor getting into it with his UFC 202 opponent Nate Diaz at a pre-fight press conference, where McGregor would throw full beverage cans at Diaz who was standing off-stage.
William Pegg, a security guard for the presser, sued McGregor and demanded that McGregor release nearly all McGregor’s personal financial information last week.
Instead, McGregor has settled with Pegg, who claims a can hit him in the back near his left shoulder. Pegg would ask for $95,000 at least in damages from McGregor, on-top of $5,000 in medical expenses from the injury.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the two sides submitted papers saying “that the parties to the above-entitled action have now fully settled their claims in this case, with an agreement that each side will bear their own fees and costs. It is expected that all settlement documents can be exchanged, and this matter will be fully resolved.”
The number Pegg received was not disclosed but does end one of McGregor’s issues in civil litigation, as he is being sued by fellow UFC fighter Michael Chiesa for injuries sustained from McGregor throwing a dolly into a bus window at UFC 223 media day.
