Paul Pierce Sued For Thousands Over Altercation At Conor vs. Khabib UFC Fight (VIDEO)
Back in October 2018, the Khabib Nurmagomedov-Conor McGregor fight was epic for many reasons as Khabib would go on to defeat McGregor via a submission win, but the fight would largely get overshadowed due to Khabib scaling the cage to fight members of McGregor’s crew while others snuck in the cage to fight Conor.
But before all that went down, Paul Pierce had an issue in the stands as well, and now he might be coming out of his pockets for it.
The man behind the suit is Christopher Mostello — who was working security at the T-Mobile Arena on Oct. 6, 2018, for UFC 229 when he got called over by a supervisor to respond to an incident involving Pierce.
Mostello claims he rushed over and was told Pierce had gotten aggressive and physical with the security supervisor — a woman — because she had asked for his ticket before allowing him back to his seat.
Mostello claims he was told Pierce grabbed the woman by the arms and pushed her to the side — so he stepped in front of Paul to try and stop him.
But, Mostello claims Paul didn’t stop — instead Paul screamed “F*ck you” and accused Mostello of being a racist.
Now, Mostello claims his reputation has taken a serious hit and he’s been subjected to public embarrassment, harassment and ridicule.
Mostello accuses Pierce of defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress and is demanding more than $15,000 in damages plus attorney’s fees and other costs.
