UFC champ Conor McGregor image rights, likeness under attack in Ireland

200 0

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight champion Conor McGregor has another fight on his radar.

No, not the one against Nate Diaz.

“Notorious” is fighting to protect his image rights and likeness from the leeches who continue to pop up and make a buck on his name, after a wildly successful run through the mixed martial arts (MMA) world which includes a 145-pound championship.

From TheTimes.co.uk:

McGregor, whose fighting nickname is the Notorious, applied on July 7 to register a series of trademarks in Ireland, including his name, and the phrases “the Mac Life” and “the Notorious”. Earlier this year the Grafton Barber, a company with 28 barber shops, applied to trademark “Notorious 13”, a reference to McGregor’s 13-second knockout of Jose Aldo.

Subtle!

McGregor is expected to return to the Octagon for a 170-pound feature fight — and UFC 196 rematch — against the aforementioned Diaz in the main event of the UFC 202 pay-per-view (PPV), scheduled for Aug. 20, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
