UFC Champion “The Notorious” Conor McGregor Seeks Trademarks
Category: Trademark News
The reigning UFC Lightweight Champion and former UFC Featherweight Champion, Conor Anthony McGregor, is seeking trademark protection for both “Conor McGregor”, as well as his nickname, “The Notorious.”
These trademarks are not expected to change the current license deal McGregor has with Reebok, who currently sells branded apparel using McGregor’s name and nickname. According to ESPN.com:
While McGregor has had a separate deal with Reebok that allows them to use his name and nickname, the company does not own the marks. Neither does the UFC, whose new owner WME/IMG took over last year.
The trademarks will cover the following categories:
- video games
- health clubs
