Conor McGregor and Michael Chiesa can move on from the legal ramifications of their historic bus attack prior to UFC 223.
Friday, MMA Fighting reported, counsel for McGregor and Chiesa filed a stipulation of discontinuance with prejudice. This indicates that the case has officially been settled and cannot be reinstated at a later point.
The report was verified to MMA Junkie by a source with knowledge of the event. This person is not permitted to talk publicly and so spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Chiesa was on a bus with other UFC 223 competitors when they were accosted by McGregor and his squad at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Chiesa has a laceration on his face from splintered glass after McGregor smashed a hand truck through the bus window. Because of the injury, he had to pull out of his fight against former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis.
Chiesa sued McGregor, his colleagues, McGregor Sports and Entertainment, Barclays Center, and BSE Global in September 2018 in Kings County (New York) Civil Court for several accusations, including negligence, battery, assault, and infliction of mental distress.
