Conor McGregor To Michael Chiesa I Wasn’t Targeting You In Bus Attack!

EXCLUSIVE

Conor McGregor claims UFC fighter Michael Chiesa shouldn’t be able to sue him for intentional infliction of emotional distress because he wasn’t the intended target in his NY bus attack. 

We broke the story .. Chiesa sued Conor over the injuries he suffered from the April 5, 2018 incident at Barclay’s Center where McGregor threw a steel dolly at a bus packed with UFC fighters and staffers, including Chiesa. 

Chiesa was hit by shards of glass and suffered cuts to his face that were so bad, he was forced to pull out of his UFC 223 bout against Anthony Pettis

Now, McGregor has filed a response to Chiesa’s suit admitting his conduct was “unquestionably inappropriate,” but should not be considered “outrageous.”

So, why does that distinction matter? Because proving “outrageousness” is essential for collecting damages when it comes to intentional infliction of emotional distress. 

McGregor also argues that his actions were “clearly not directed at [Chiesa] at all” — which the judge should consider in evaluating the “outrageousness” of the incident. 

Conor has publicly acknowledged that his target was Khabib Nurmagomedov — who was also riding the bus that day. 

Conor had flown into New York from Ireland to attack Khabib after the Russian fighter got into it with one of Conor’s friends days before the bus attack. 

In his court docs, McGregor also claims Chiesa has failed to prove that he suffered any real emotional distress from the incident — noting that he’s a “seasoned combat sports fighter” … and therefore should be used to physical trauma.

McGregor was arrested for the incident and later pled guilty to disorderly conduct. He was sentenced to 5 days of community service, and ordered to complete an anger management class. 

Conor later got his wish and fought Khabib — but lost … badly.

Breaking News

Conor McGregor is taking his punishment for a speeding incident in Ireland very seriously, showing a ton of remorse and … JUST KIDDING, CONOR DOESN’T GIVE A FOOK ABOUT YOUR PUNISHMENTS!!!

Just a day after The Notorious One had his driving privileges in Ireland revoked for doin’ 95 MPH in a 60 … Conor joked about the whole ordeal with his adorable baby.

Conor’s been pretty Teflon to everything that goes bad in his life these days … and the loss of a driver’s license for 6 months plus a measly $ 1,100 fine doesn’t look like it’s changin’ a thing.

Conor McGregor 6 Month Driving Ban In Ireland … Over Speeding Incident

Breaking News

Conor McGregor will be living the chauffeur life for a while — the UFC star’s driver’s licence has been suspended for 6 MONTHS in Ireland over a 2017 speeding incident. 

McGregor arrived to court Wednesday morning — in a SHARP looking suit — in County Kildare, Ireland (population 8,412) to face the judge in a case where he was accused of doing 95 mph in a 60.

Aside from having his driving privileges revoked, McGregor was also hit with an $ 1,100 fine. 

During the hearing, McGregor reportedly apologized to the court — but the judge was upset and asked why Conor wasn’t charged for a more serious crime, considering how dangerously the UFC star was driving. 

After the hearing, McGregor told RTE in Ireland, “I gotta drive safer.”

Funny, the punishment for speeding seems to be more harsh than Conor’s punishment for throwing a steel dolly at a bus in Brooklyn earlier this year. 

Remember, in the case Conor was sentenced to 5 days of community service, ordered to pay for the damages and complete an anger management course. 

As for the driving bad, too bad for McGregor — his fleet of cars is sick … dude drives everything from Lamborghinis to Rolls Royces … even giant Proper 12 semi-trucks. 

Good thing he can afford a driver …
