UFC Champ Conor McGregor Facing Criminal Charges After Barclays Center Attacks

Conor McGregor

Earlier this week, Dana White finally confirmed that Conor McGregor would be stripped of his UFC lightweight title, but unbeknown to MMA fans around the world, it would be the start of a insane three days leading up to UFC 223.

McGregor was charged with felony criminal mischief and misdemeanor counts of assault, attempted assault, menacing and reckless endangerment.

Ahead of the court appearance, McGregor and Cowley were seen separately being escorted out of the NYPD's 78th precinct building and into cars, with their hands apparently restrained behind their backs.

McGregor was arrested this week after he and a group of friends charged a coach carrying a group of UFC fighters - including Nurmagomedov - after a press conference in Brooklyn. "What the fuck is wrong with him", another man on the bus says, as McGregor ran around outside wielding a metal fence.

Two athletes were wounded, forcing them to be pulled from the upcoming UFC 223 card, the Ultimate Fighting Championship confirmed.

Dana White has revealed the details of text messages between himself and Conor McGregor after the Irish man was arrested in NY.

The 29-year-old is facing charges of assault and criminal mischief.

Lobov has also been removed from the bill, due to his alleged involvement. "Right now I can't tell you". You can see items being thrown at an occupied bus, causing a window to shatter.

In a tweet Saturday, McGregor's agent Audie Attar lamented "rumor and misinformation" surrounding McGregor but did not elaborate.

The attack was the result of a beef between McGregor's pal Artem Labov and Khabib Nurmagomedov, who was in the bus. To his mind, it could be a year before "The Notorious" gets his life back together, and that is before one considers the prospect of potential jail time.

Many were disappointed, including, of course, the UFC president himself, Dana White, who revealed that they were set to announce McGregor's next fight, which was to be against Rafael Dos Anjos for the interim UFC welterweight belt.

McGregor last competed eight months ago, losing to undefeated Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match that reportedly paid Mayweather more than $100 million and McGregor at least $30 million. "And we'll turn them around and get them fights again real quick".

If former UFC champion McGregor is looking for help from the organisation, he is out of luck, UFC president Dana White said on Friday.
