Conor McGregor Charged With Assault After Alleged Bus Attack

  • Earlier today Mc Gregor was stripped of his UFC lightweight title

"He's still in custody, still at the police precinct until he's removed to court this morning". White told ESPN that Lobov was part of the crew that attacked the bus. The police said McGregor had thrown "various items", then fled before officers arrived.

As a result, lightweight contender Michael Chiesa has been forced to withdraw from UFC 223. Brooklyn. You want to talk to me? He was treated at a nearby hospital and released. Borg's flyweight contest with Brandon Moreno will no longer go ahead.

"The organization deems today's disruption completely unacceptable and is now working on the consequences that will follow", UFC said in a statement.

Video footage circulated on social media showed McGregor running in a loading area and picking up an item and throwing it at a window on the back of the bus. The incident was upsetting to all UFC fighters present in the bus including Rose Namajunas who fights in the co-Main Event on Saturday night.

A video posted showed McGregor and his group fleeing Barclays Center in a black SUV after the melee.

McGregor's antics started following a press conference at Barclays Center to promote UFC 223 this weekend.

Artem has been pulled from the fight card as well by UFC President Dana White, and his future too appears to be in jeopardy. "This is the type of bad decision you make that turns people against you".

Nurmagomedov and Lobov had an altercation at a hotel on Tuesday.

The scenes came at the end of what had already been a rough day for McGregor as he lost his lightweight title.

Villanova hero deletes Twitter account over offensive posts
The statement was later pulled back because the age of the tweets contradicted the school's version of the events. Just as in previous contests this month, Villanova looked vulnerable in the first half Monday night.

Mr White subsequently told reporters at the venue that Lobov would not be allowed to fight Alex Caceres as scheduled on Saturday.

"This fight's happening Saturday". "He came into the Barclays Center, attacked our fighters and attacked my staff with a bunch of guys, and no, you don't get my help on this one".

White said the 29-year-old McGregor said he was sorry about the fighters who were injured, but, "this had to be done".

White said he's still dumbfounded by McGregor's actions.

McGregor last competed eight months ago, falling to Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match that reportedly earned him at least $30 million.

But on Friday, McGregor was arrested by the NYPD for an act of combat that was most decidedly unsanctioned.

But this wasn't the first time both fighters clashed heads.

Aside from his athletic success, McGregor is known for his beard and colorful tattoos, taste in expensive and flashy clothes, and aggressive taunting of opponents that stands out even among professional fighters.
