Conor McGregor Is Charged For Intentional Infliction Of Emotional Distress, Battery And Assault By Michael Chiesa!
Artem Lobov and Khabib Nurmagomedov had a heated altercation. Then Conor McGregor decided to take things over. He executed a hooligan bus attack which forced Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg to withdraw from UFC 223. Even today, Rose Namajunas has consequences. She visits therapist on a regular basis and still doesn’t appear in public.
Michael Chiesa had many lacerations across his face after a metal dolly broke the bus window. Theoretically, Chiesa lost a lot more. He was the highest ranked Lightweight competitor when Max Holloway was claimed medically unfit to fight! So he could maybe fight for the title if Conor McGregor didn’t “sabotage” him. After all this mess, Al Iaquinta got a chance to face Khabib Nurmagomedov for UFC Lightweight title. The Eagle defeated him at the main event of UFC 223 on April 7, 2018, via unanimous decision.
But Michael Chiesa decided to revenge. According to TMZ.com, Chiesa decided to press charges against Conor McGregor in New York state court. The Notorious is accused of “assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress”. Michael Chiesa claims he suffered “mental trauma, severe emotional distress, and/or bodily harm.” But Chiesa also filed a lawsuit against Barclays Center. Maverick stated that no adequate security measures were taken.
Conor McGregor reached a plea deal with Brooklyn prosecutors, so he evaded prison. The Notorious later apologized to Karolina Kowalkiewicz. She decided not to press charges against him. Mystic Mac also tried to apologize to Rose Namajunas, but she didn’t accept it.
Conor McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) is slated to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov (26-0 MMA, 10-0 UFC). They will collide at the main event of UFC 229 on October 6th for the UFC Lightweight title. Dana White claims that he expects the highest number of PPV (pay-per-view) buys in the history of UFC.
It looks like Michael Chiesa won’t let Conor McGregor get away that easily. What are your estimations? How much money could Michael Chiesa get from this lawsuit?
