As The Blast first reported, McGregor pushed back the date of his deposition in his Vegas battery lawsuit in part because he was training for the Khabib fight. The guy suing him, William Pegg, agreed and a date was set for October 18.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, that date came and went and still no deposition from McGregor.
Pegg says McGregor once again blew off the depo, despite McGregor’s lawyers being the ones who set the date. Pegg wants McGregor to be sanctioned for his “flagrant conduct” and is asking for the judge to grant him a default judgment in his favor.
A judge has yet to rule.
As The Blast first reported, William Pegg sued McGregor over an incident that took place during a press conference in August 2016 for McGregor’s fight with Nate Diaz.
The presser became infamous when Diaz stormed out and the two began throwing water bottles at each other. Video from the event showed Conor McGregor grabbing a can of what appeared to be a Monster energy drink off a table and throwing it at Diaz.
Pegg claimed in his lawsuit the can hit him in the back near his left shoulder. He claimed he incurred medical expenses from his injury for just under $5,000. He sued asking for at least $95,000 in damages.
