    Lol, 50k is nothing. I think he’ll get more than that but guy is just losing people respect.

  2. josh colbert September 16, 2018 at 6:15 am

    Hes not going to win more then a 50k dude actually fought before filing this lmao also there going to see the evidence of a paper cut on his face also that's 50k is penny change to a guy who made 100+ million for 1 fight and has probably spent close to a million if not a tad more for this fight camp alone.

  3. Andy Fam September 16, 2018 at 6:15 am

    Well McGregor fans need to thank the lawsuit cuz it brings Conor back to the cage to be a slave to Dana White.

  4. miguel barajas September 16, 2018 at 6:15 am

    you guys are idiot's Conor McGregor is part owner of the UFC that why his not doing media tour with khabib one of his biggest UFC fight because he don't need to see it everyone knows Conor McGregor and khabib he knows that's going to break record's and also he is 40% owner of UFC dead a good deal with Dana white and ufx people Conor McGregor is now richer than Floyd if you compare age I think Conor McGregor will get to a billion dollars by age 37 watch !!. that's without his sponsorship and commercial and his clothing and boxing and MMA promotion that's why Floyd is a huge Conor McGregor fan. Conor McGregor is the 🐐 in the UFC of money making. Also could you image how pissed off khabib is when he finds out Conor McGregor makes money of his fights lol πŸ•πŸ»πŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’²πŸ’²πŸ’² no one gave Conor McGregor this he is the one who earned it regardless of Dana white helping him promote to be big Dana white can't do this without Conor McGregor period. you have the talent and the promoter……..

  9. Jrridermd75 September 16, 2018 at 6:15 am

    I don't think 50k is gonna do it man, my guess would be 1 to 2mil.

  10. I Says National News ISNN September 16, 2018 at 6:15 am

    Micheal Chiesa only entitled to the money he lost from not fighting. That’s it nothing more. Also Chiesa has fought since he was cut.

    Dang mr TAP OUT has 2get knocked out Again by Floyd Mayweather get that money back he's going to get sued for.

  14. yo Alex September 16, 2018 at 6:15 am

    UFC still paid him for his fight, even if tho he couldn't fight. You should do more research TMZ. There's a reason why his only suing for "emotional distress"

  15. Tammy Forbes September 16, 2018 at 6:15 am

    $50k? It was well worth that in just promotion alone, pay the man that ain’t shit. He probably spent that to fly over here with his buddies to do the attack. πŸ˜‚

  16. Chi Raq September 16, 2018 at 6:15 am

    Chiesa gets 50k to show, 50k to win, plus if he has a good lawyer he can claim he got fucked out of bonus money for the fight and can claim another 50-100k. That on top of his medical expenses. Plus Chiesa probably would have been in the title fight against Khabib had he not gotten cut. Can tack on another 100k for that. There's a lot of hypothetical to the title part, but it doesn't matter if your lawyers good enough. He shouldn't walk away with less than 150-200k.

  17. Mystic Mac September 16, 2018 at 6:15 am

    You'll do fookin nutin, not one of yus would do anything…. shut ure foocking mouth!!!

  18. Hustlerof Culture September 16, 2018 at 6:15 am

    $50g after his Mayweather payday? Chump change!

  19. Cornelis van der Heijden September 16, 2018 at 6:15 am

    I want him to fight Diaz for the 3rd time, those fights were awesome!

  20. Liam Mccloskey September 16, 2018 at 6:15 am

  21. Meade Helios September 16, 2018 at 6:15 am

  22. swampthing401 September 16, 2018 at 6:15 am

    Lol 50k ? That's a drop in the bucket you really think Connor is worried about that?

  23. SHELLBACKS CLUB 🐒 September 16, 2018 at 6:15 am

    What took Chiesa so long

  27. Scripts September 16, 2018 at 6:15 am

    These people barely got a scratch on them. Not saying it's right. But I think it's hilarious how these fighters are supposed to be mentally tough and they are complaining about "mental trauma" lmao
