The victim of Conor McGregor’s recent arrest in Miami, Fl will now be filing a civil suit against the fighter. This comes in addition to two felony charges already being filed against “The Notorious.”
Following the destruction of his cell phone, Ahmed Abdirzak filed a police report with Miami-Dade police. McGregor was then arrested for criminal mischief, and strong-armed robbery at his Miami house. Video has since surfaced of this incident.
First reported by the Associated Press, McGregor is now being sued by the victim. Abdirzak, a restaurant manager from the UK, claims “battery, assault, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.” The Miami-Dade court records reports a civil lawsuit seeking $!5,000 from McGregor.
McGregor’s lawyer, Samuel Rabin, has since confirmed the lawsuit with MMAFighting. “Our office is in receipt of the civil lawsuit filed today,” Rabin said, “which is nothing more than a quick effort seeking a payday.” This attitude reflects McGregor’s who seems not bothered by the situation. He was seen going for a run shortly after posting bail, along with posting on Instagram.
There has been much talk about the severity of this situation. Some have stated they don’t feel it to be a big deal; others citing that this is merely the latest in a long stream of issues. This incident has come only a few days after McGregor finished his probation for the dolly incident last year.
McGregor is also being sued by someone else, related to the aforementioned dolly incident. UFC Lightweight, Michael Chiesa, is also suing the MMA superstar. So unfortunately it would appear that the only time we will be seeing the former champ in the near future, is in a court room.
