Michael Chiesa was in the bus that was infamously attacked by Conor McGregor at UFC 223. At this 2018 incident, ‘Notorious’ threw a dolly at a bus containing UFC fighters such as Khabib Nurmagomedov, Rose Namajunas, and Michael Chiesa.
Michael Chiesa immediately filed a suit against McGregor due to injuries sustained from the broken glass on the bus withheld Chiesa from his bout against Anthony Pettis, and possibly a title shot with a win. This attack temporarily put McGregor in New York prison.
