Conor McGregor charged after allegedly attacking bus at UFC press event

Conor McGregor charged after allegedly attacking bus at UFC press event

What McGregor wanted, McGregor got - in cash, championships, and living his luxurious life. The UFC celebrates its 25th anniversary by visiting the New York Stock Exchange.

A video has emerged of a bus window being smashed, where fighters were injured as they waited to leave a media day for the UFC.

Quiet and humbled, McGregor couldn't talk his way out of trouble in a NY courtroom.

He stood before a judge in jeans, saying nothing except "yes your honor".

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. Both fighters are due to next appear at a NY court on June 14.

An agitated Conor McGregor stormed the UFC media day event at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Thursday, slamming a metal barrier toward a bus occupied by McGregor's possible replacement as lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov. White also said this week he did not expect McGregor to attend Saturday's UFC 223 card. McGregor tried to stick up for Lobov, a close friend, and apparently loaded a private jet with his best buds and flew to NY to rumble.

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. "Obviously, the big question everybody's been asking me is, 'Are you firing Conor McGregor?'" White told the broadcaster. "I have too many other things to think about". "He justified it. It was justified to him".

Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg were both pulled from the fight because of injuries suffered on the bus from McGregor's shenanigans.

McGregor spent Thursday night in a Brooklyn police station, after surrendering, and was escorted to a criminal court in handcuffs.

Shocking new footage has emerged of Conor McGregor's bus attack in NY.

"Now that the king of MMA goes and acts like a hoodlum, that does not make the sport of MMA look good right now", Herring said. (WARNING: Some language may be offensive) "Conor heard about it and loaded a plane up in Ireland with 20 goons", White said.

Commonwealth Games: Horton ends Australia's long wait for 400 freestyle champion
Just swimming in front of the home crowd is unreal". "I've raced against Hannah in every meet and I've been second every time". "I left no stone unturned to get out here and race for Australia in the 100m hurdles and the 4x100m relay", Pearson said.

"We were actually working on a new deal and a new plans for him". In the history of the UFC, this is definitely the worst thing ever that's happened.

Lobov was yanked from the card and banned from the building.

It is unclear if UFC President Dana White will permit McGregor to return to the ring.

McGregor profanely responded on Twitter and wrote, "You'll strip me of nothing".

Irish Mixed Martial Arts fighter Cian Cowley is led out of the 78th Precinct of the New York Police Department, 06-04-2018.

UFC's president, Dana White, echoed that reporting on Fox Sports 1's "First Things First," saying McGregor flew several people to NY from Ireland when he heard of the incident at the hotel.

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

UFC said a planned featherweight bout between Artem Lobov and Alex Caceres was also called off "due to Lobov's involvement in the incident".

But not even fatherhood could mellow the irate Irishman.

Fans had to settle for McGregor-lite Colby Covington strutting out in a pin-stripe suit and sunglasses and calling people "son" and "junior".

"He's the most visible face on the planet".
