Michael Chiesa’s Lawsuit Against Conor McGregor Revealed

The UFC 223 bus episode is not in the rear-view mirror just yet for Conor McGregor. The Irish celebrity was sued by Michael Chiesa after he had been hurt in the dolly-throwing episode back in UFC 223, and now we have details of the lawsuit. TMZ was the first to examine the details of the litigation in a movie which you can watch at the conclusion of the report.
As stated by the TMZ report, Chiesa is asserting that the UFC 223 dolly episode was a publicity stunt on the part of McGregor, and now Chiesa desires all of McGregor’s profits from his mega struggle against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229. According to the lawsuit, the”Son of Sam” law in New York applies to this incident, where someone convicted of a crime can’t utilize that crime to gain. According to the lawsuit, Chiesa considers McGregor profited from the UFC 223 incident, partially because it attracted more attention to him and the card, and also because the UFC used footage of the bus attack to market the McGregor vs. Nurmagomedov fight at UFC 229. Remember that the UFC 229 pay-per-view has been the largest selling PPV that the UFC has done, so McGregor made countless dollars for that struggle, and Chiesa wants a piece of the pie.
Can Chiesa’s suit be successful? Who knows at this point, and it’s possible this is finally settled out of court. But obviously Chiesa was given legal advice to carry this as far as he could go and he’ll attempt to make some money from it, also it’s hard to blame him considering he was legitimately injured in the bus attack. So far, fans and press have laughed off Chiesa’s lawsuit. But everyone should remember Chiesa obtained facial cuts in the bus strike that forced him off the card. He later fought UFC 226 and dropped by submssion into Anthony Pettis, and he must feel like he got the raw end of the offer. Chiesa is next scheduled to confront Carlos Condit at the year-end UFC 232 card, but with this litigation in mind you have to wonder whether it will change him.
In terms of McGregor, he is still dealing with the Nevada Athletic Commission in relation to the UFC 229 incident where Nurmagomedov jumped through the fence. It has been rumored McGregor plans to fight in MMA again in 2019, but till we see what kind of sanction he will get for UFC 229 it is difficult to say exactly when he’ll compete , and against who. The bus attack obviously did not hurt McGregor’s inventory as much as it hurt a number of the other fighters that day, including Rose Namajunas, that says the bus attack mentally scarred her and who hasn’t fought because UFC 223. While McGregor has made millions since then, other fighters that afternoon such as Ray Borg were severely affected by the incident, and it’s hard to blame those who were injured in the attack to try and sue McGregor and see what happens in the courts.
