Conor McGregor Sued By Fellow Fighter Following Bus Attack

Conor McGregor Sued By Fellow Fighter Following Bus Attack

Conor McGregor is being sued following an attack on a bus at a fighting event earlier this year.

The Irish mixed martial arts star and others stormed a UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) event at the Barclays Center in New York in April.

People were seen in video footage attempting to restrain McGregor, with some managing to stop the bus from being hit by various missiles, including bins.

McGregor and others had targeted long-time rival Khabib Nurmagomedov and a number of other UFC fighters.

Lightweight American mixed martial artist Michael Chiesa was sitting in the vehicle with Nurmagomedov and was reportedly injured in the brawl.

Chiesa is suing McGregor for causing "severe emotional distress, mental trauma and/or bodily harm".

In the court documents, he says that McGregor's actions caused "serious personal injury and economic damages" to him.

He was injured in the attack and had to withdraw from his scheduled fight a few days later.

He is also suing the Barclays Center, saying security had failed to "engage in proper security measures to protect the plaintiff and other patrons".

McGregor, 30, was arrested and charged with criminal mischief and misdemeanour assault but pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and was sentenced to community service.
