Conor McGregor reaches settlement with Michael Chiesa over bus attack

Conor McGregor’s attack on the UFC bus prior to the UFC 223 event in 2018 continues to get people talking. Let’s remember that “The Notorious” was looking specifically for Khabib Nurmagomedov, who was in as one of the fighters on the card – he ended up defeating Al Iaquinta – after he beat his now former friend Artem Lobov. Also set to fight was Michael Chiesa against Anthony Pettis but he had to pull out because of the damage he sustained from the Irishman.

“Maverick” sued McGregor after the incident and four years later we confirmed that they reached a settlement (via MMA Fighting). Lawyers for both fighters filed paperwork to report that they agreed not to pursue the lawsuit and that it cannot be refiled in the future. The financial figures that made this settlement possible were not disclosed. The Dublin native had already pleaded guilty in the first instance to avoid jail time.

Currently, Conor McGregor is getting back in shape to return to the octagon after his serious leg injury; he could fight again as early as August 2023. Michael Chiesa is on a two-fight losing streak and in 2022 has yet to fight, nor does he have a fight scheduled at this time. Speaking of legal matters, let’s also remember that the former double Light Heavyweight and Featherweight World Champion is involved in a lawsuit rightly with Artem Lobov.
