Conor McGregor is being sued by a woman for alleged personal injury.
The Independent reports that this is a multimillion-dollar lawsuit. The case stems from an alleged incident that took place in 2018. The lawsuit was filed on Monday, January 18, in the High Court in Dublin. An associate of McGregor’s has been named as a co-defendant.
The woman’s mother has also filed a claim, though this one is smaller. She also alleges personal injuries action.
Karen J Kessler, a spokesperson for McGregor, responded to the lawsuit with the following.
“After an exhaustive investigation conducted by the Gardaí which, in addition to interviews of the plaintiff, included interviewing numerous sources, obtaining witnesses’ statements, examining closed-circuit footage and the cooperation of Conor McGregor, these allegations were categorically rejected.
“The plaintiff knows the facts contradict the assertions in this lawsuit. Mr. McGregor will dispute any claims and is confident that justice will prevail.”
The attorney for the woman suing McGregor is Dave Coleman. He did not go into further detail on the case.
“Proceedings have been served. We can make no further comment as the matter is before the courts.”
Michael J Staines & Company is representing McGregor in this case. The woman and her mother are seeking separate trials.
The lawsuit comes right around the time McGregor is scheduled to make his return to the Octagon. In the main event of UFC 257, McGregor will go one-on-one with Dustin Poirier in a rematch. The lightweight bout is scheduled to take place on Saturday night, January 23.
