UFC superstar Conor McGregor is now facing criminal charges for the alleged attack of a UFC bus on April 5 that left multiple individuals injured. Following the fracas from inside Brooklyn, New York’s Barclays Center, UFC lightweight contender Michael Chiesa has come forward with a few words on “Notorious.”
After a hand truck smashed into the bus window, bus goer Michael Chiesa suffered minor lacerations on his face. Consequently, the fighter was pulled from his match up for UFC 223.
Meanwhile, the night’s main event lightweight title fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson fell through as Ferguson injured his leg. Nurmagomedov would go on to face unranked Al Iaquinta for the title instead.
As Chiesa was a ranked lightweight at the time, the fighter is convinced that he would have fought Nurmagomedov for the title if he had not been deemed medically unfit to compete. Speaking to media in a recent interview, Chiesa explained that he has no comment to make concerning the possibility that he is forming a lawsuit against McGregor.
“I have no comment on that, but he f**ked me out of a title shot. I’ll tell you that much.”
As far as having received an apology from “Notorious,” Chiesa revealed that he has not heard from the fighter.
“I haven’t heard from him, so f**k him.”
“I don’t really have a lot to say to the guy. I lost a title shot. I have proof. I was the highest ranked guy on the card. I would have stepped in to fight Khabib.”
