Rips Vegas Security Guard …
You Suck at Your Job!

Conor McGregor is firing back at the security guard who claims the UFC star injured him during that crazy 2016 bottle-throwing incident at the Nate Diaz fight presser … saying his accuser sucks at his job.
The man who filed the lawsuit is William Pegg — who was working for MGM security on Aug. 17, 2016 … when Nate and Conor threw bottles and cans at each other during a heated exchange before UFC 202.
Pegg says McGregor chucked a can that struck him in the left shoulder and injured him.
But now, McGregor is telling his side of the story … saying Pegg failed in his duty to provide security at the event and “did nothing” while Nate and his crew initiated the incident by throwing bottles at Conor first.
“Had [Pegg] met his obligations not only as a security guard on duty during the press conference, but moreover, the person purportedly in charge of security, and protected [Conor] and his friends and family, than this entire incident would have been avoided.”
Conor also admits to throwing objects that day (obviously, it was captured on video) … but says there’s NO PROOF the projectile that struck Pegg was thrown by him.
The case is due back in court later this year.
