LAS VEGAS - An infamous press conference may dip into Conor McGregor's pocketbooks.

According to The Blast, the fighter was sued for throwing a can and hitting someone in the crowd during his contentious presser with Nate Diaz August 17 last year.

William Pegg claims in a lawsuit he was hit in the back, and had medical bills that cost him just under $5 thousand.

He's asking for at least $90 thousand in addition to those bills for damages.

The Blast reports McGregor's lawyers are denying any responsibility over the allegations.
