MMA – UFC: Conor McGregor Being Sued Over Bus Attack
Conor McGregor is being sued by UFC contender Michael Chiesa, who claims he endured physical, financial and emotional harm following the Irishman’s assault on a bus in April.
McGregor tossed a metal dolly into the window of a bus, which was transporting fighters at a UFC media day at Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center on 5 April.
Chiesa was injured from this encounter, and 2 days after the incident, he pulled back from his battle at UFC 223.
“Chiesa is reportedly suing McGregor due to assault, battery, and infliction of emotional distress”
I wish I had accesss to all of the documents just to read for fun. Everyone, including Rose, is trying to milk the cash cow. Especially after that andrade fight the other night

Meanwhile, McGregor maintained a strategic distance from imprisonment, in the wake of pleading guilty to disorderly conduct in July. The cases levelled against McGregor and his escort are carelessness, assault and battery and infliction of emotional distress.
The sum Chiesa is looking for is not specified, yet it is more than $25,000, as he guarantees it surpasses the jurisdictional reach of all lower courts, which would otherwise have jurisdiction.
Chiesa pulled back from his battle with Anthony Pettis at UFC 223. He trusts he passed up a UFC title shot at a similar occasion, as the UFC required a very late replacement for a lightweight title battle that Chiesa was not accessible for.
Chiesa in the long run battled Pettis at UFC 226 in July, however lost in the second round.
The amount of people who are mad at Chiesa for suing McGregor is shocking, but I guess I shouldn’t be shocked by MMA fans anymore.

Idk what’s more pitiful Chiesa suing McGregor or Rose saying she hasn’t been able to leave the house in months because she was traumatized ????
