A variety of objects were thrown by various people during the altercation, with McGregor allegedly hitting a security guard with a Monster Energy can.

William Pegg, who was the security guard hit by the can, has dismissed the complaint in a Nevada federal court according to MMA Junkie because he has settled the lawsuit with McGregor. The judge overseeing the case dismissed it with prejudice, meaning the same lawsuit cannot be filed against by Pegg against McGregor.

There is no word on how much money Pegg settled for, but he was originally suing McGregor for $95,000. The report also states that a big reason McGregor’s lawyers settled out of court was to avoid having the fighter’s financial records released to the general public.

This is the second legal issue McGregor has now put behind him, as the fighter was recently disqualified from driving for six months and fined for speeding in his hoe country of Ireland.

The next issue McGregor will have to face is going to be the punishment from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) for his role in the UFC 229 post-fight brawl.
