    That's because Chiesa wants his money now, and not in 2031

    I might not be as cool as the "tough guys" on Sherdog for not shaming Chiesa about this case, but hes absolutely doing the right thing

    If you go throwing around objects in public, get ready to pay up motherfucker. It is what it is

    I hope Chiesa gets as much money as possible

    Not sure much a "defense" as much as palm greasing. Donations to a judge's election war chest are really helpful.

    He still has to substantiate damages. Dude was making what $30k a fight? Even if he says Conor ruined his career because he cut his forehead what do you give him? He didn’t help his case by fighting 3 months later either. But lets say Conor cost him 10 fights (ridiculous) that would still be only $300K. Chump change for Conor. If he gets anything close to a million it wouldn’t be “justice” but who knows with US courts.

    The most important part of this post for those who think Chiesa is walking away with millions.

    Dude an old man just got $400K because he got rear-ended by a teenager texting. No major physical damages but the guy testified in court that he has serious anxiety when driving and sometimes it gets so bad he can't drive at all. His attorney wanted $275K. The kid's insurance company tried to settle for $75K. The jury awarded him $400K. Just for a vehicle accident with no physical damage
    to his person. Just emotional and mental trauma.

    He can say he has PTSD and he's afraid of buses now. Afraid to even look at them or ride on one. Afraid of dollies especially that it sends him into full panic mode. That to him he relives the nightmare every day. Even considered suicide over it. Sees a shrink because of it etc.

    That's what happens when slimey lawyers get involved.

    He could have repeated it a thousand times and Clowner nuthuggers would still argue that Conor will defend instead of settling out of court, lmao.

    Plea deals don't usually involve no contest

    Admitted guilt in a criminal case.

    The arguments are going to be about how
    much Conor pays.

    Which you wouldn’t know because you’re not a lawyer.

    I’m not a NY lawyer but ... I am admitted in a common law jurisdiction.

    Lol thats mental, im from the UK so have no clue how your law system works

    But my argument is a legit one i feel, Chisea is a cage fighter and taking damage is part of his profession, he was at works event and he took damage. A minor amount of superficial damage, pay him his accepted amount which he agrees is fair to take damage aka his fight purse

    I think that would win tbh

    If conor retired, good luck trying to get him to pay any amount of money...he's an Irish citizen...he doesn't live in this country...therefore any amount conor is ordered to pay, is meaningless, if it can't possibly be inforced...

    Yeah but still Conor probably needs to come up with at least 250K to make it go away now. His social media accounts showing him blatantly blowing money is going to come back and haunt him.

    If Chiesa waits it out he could potentially be looking at 7 digit payout in 7-10 years.

    There’s a lot of Irish and Conor fans in NY. Even one or two of them on the jury would help sway things for Conor. But realistically Conors settles out of court for less than $500K. Probably $200K or something silly like that. Not bad for a cut on the forehead.

    This was the right thing to do and I am surprised Ray Borg isn't doing the same, he got glass in his eye.
    Maybe since Chiesa is opening this lawsuit more fighters from the bus will join him.
    Hell, even Rose has a case as it was public that she was visibly traumatized
