Conor McGregor gets to scratch one Las Vegas problem off his list.

As former UFC “champ-champ” Conor McGregor deals with his indefinite suspension from the UFC 229 post-fight melee, another one of his previous misdemeanors in the city of Las Vegas has been put to bed.

On Monday, “The Notorious” opted to settle a lawsuit filed by a security guard who was supposedly injured during his UFC 202 presser brawl with team Nate Diaz.

As first reported by The Blast, McGregor had reached a settlement, but no amount or other terms have been specified.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the two sides submitted papers saying “that the parties to the above-entitled action have now fully settled their claims in this case, with an agreement that each side will bear their own fees and costs. It is expected that all settlement documents can be exchanged and this matter will be fully resolved.”

The lawsuit was filed by William Pegg in September 2017, claiming he was hit in the back by one of McGregor’s flying Monster Energy drink cans that were intended for Diaz and his comrades. He was asking for a total of $95,000 from the Irish superstar, who earned a disclosed amount of $3 million for the rematch with Diaz.
