Conor McGregor sought after by NYPD after UFC 223 media day incident

April 5, 2018

Conor McGregor made his presence known at UFC 223 media day as he attacked a bus carrying UFC fighters as they were leaving the arena.  Michael Chiesa was injured and is reportedly off the card this Saturday.

McGregor and his entourage which included UFC fighter Artem Lobov made their way through the Barclays Center in search of Khabib Nurmogomedov.  Footage shows what appear to be McGregor throw a guard rail into a bus, breaking one of the windows.

Dana White indicated that Lobov, who was scheduled to fight this Saturday, is now removed from his fight due to the incident. The New York Police are looking for McGregor and anyone else involved in the incident.

Payout Perspective:

What exactly ignited McGregor is not clear aside from the fact that White announced that Khabib-Max was for the lightweight championship, a title McGregor has held but not defended.  It could have been a confrontation between Lobov and Khabib earlier this week.  Still, if you are a professional and want to keep your place in the organization, there are other ways to go at it.  There will be repercussions from this incident and one has to wonder what in the world was going to be accomplished by these actions.  There is a good possibility that there is legal trouble coming forward especially Chiesa if it is determined that he’s off of Saturday’s card.

Got something to say?
