Former two-weight UFC champion, Conor McGregor has offered to fight former teammate, Artem Lobov at SBG Concorde in Dublin tonight – urging the Russian-born fighter to scrap his plans to pursue a suit against him over the inception idea of Proper No. Twelve, as well as scrap a newly revealed defamation case against McGregor and his father.
McGregor, a former undisputed lightweight and featherweight champion, is expected to see a suit brought against him by his former training partner and close friend, Lobov, who claims he came to the Crumlin native with an idea to pursue a multi-million dollar deal to enter the whiskey market with the later established, Proper No. Twelve brand.
Selling the brand back in April of last year, McGregor is reported to have netted in the region of a cool $600,000,00 in the deal. And in recent days, reports emerged detailing how Lobov is set to bring legal proceedings against McGregor in a bid to secure 5% of profits from the sale.
