Conor Mcgregor has been involved in a court battle with Artem Lobov, a former sparring partner. Artemlobov sued Conor McGregor because he did not receive profits from the $600 million whiskey deal. Lobov claims that he suggested to Mcgregor that he enter the Whiskey Business and was a major contributor to the development of Proper 12 Irish Whiskey. Artem claimed that he owed him 5% of the profit from the sale after the company was sold for $600 millions.
Mcgregor, however, explained that he had not been promised a deal and refused to meet Artem’s conditions. Artem then decided to file a lawsuit against Mcgregor. Mcgregor called Lobov a “rat” and published their private conversations on Twitter. The former sparring partner of Lobov filed a defamation suit. Artem Lobov was found guilty and ordered to pay Conor Mcgregor’s legal fees. Conor Mcgregor issued a Twitter statement after Paradigm Sports won the legal battle with boxer Manny Pacquiao.
He attacked Manny Pacquiao over his defeat and threatened Artemlobov by saying “Artem, you already owe two rounds of court fee, as awarded by the Judge.” As this fight progresses, a judgment will be placed on your house because I know that you won’t pay my legal fees. “I will have no other choice than to take your house.” According to the Tweet, Conor Mcgregor would pay his legal fees by a former teammate, even if that meant taking his home. The tweet was deleted, and there has been no further mention of the dispute between Artem and Mcgregor since then.
