Is this the incident that sparked McGregor's rampage?

Conor McGregor Conor Mc Gregor leaves New York police station in handcuffs after bus incident
Edward Snyder | 09 April, 2018, 01:19

Conor McGregor was charged with three counts of misdemeanour assault and one count of criminal mischief after he stormed into Brooklyn's Barclays Center arena on Thursday afternoon and attacked a bus full of fighters who were set to compete at UFC 223 on Saturday evening.

One of his accomplices, Cian Cowley, had his bail set at £17,500 ($25,000).

McGregor has been allowed to return to Ireland, but will return to court on June 14 and is facing a maximum jail sentence of seven years.

It appears to show McGregor and his entourage using a metal barricade and other objects to smash windows on a bus filled with fighters departing from the media event.

UFC president Dana White told ESPN that no decision would be taken on McGregor's lucrative UFC career until after this weekend's fight card.

"All the guys that ended up not getting fights, they'll all get paid for not getting fights", White said.

Unless you have been living under a rock you know the story by now, Conor McGregor and company invaded the Barclays Center during the UFC 223 media day. 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.

McGregor was arrested Thursday in NY after he ambushed UFC 223's media day. The Russian lightweight fighter had reportedly cornered one of McGregor's teammates, Artem Lobov, at a hotel along with his fight team on Wednesday.




On Friday, Conor McGregor turned himself into police. Three fighters were scratched from the card due to the brouhaha.

"So much rumor and misinformation about my client, Conor McGregor".

"What the f-", Chiesa said.

"I think Khabib, one of the fighters, disrespected one of his friends".

Michael Chiesa was sent to the hospital with injuries sustained in the attack and was forced out of his scheduled fight against Anthony Pettis.

McGregor, 29, is in police custody and being held in the 78th precinct, Detective Navarro of the New York Police Department said Friday morning. McGregor hasn't fought for UFC since November 2016 and was stripped this week of the 155-pound championship he had never defended.

He previously told Reuters he made an eye-watering US$140 million from last August's boxing match with Floyd Mayweather but has not fought in the Octagon since the win over Alvarez.
