McGregor charged after media rampage

White said he will deal with McGregor's future in the UFC after this weekend's event is finished.

For his trouble, McGregor landed in some. Cowley has been charged with one count of assault and one count of criminal mischief, according to police.

UFC star Conor McGregor has been released on $65,000 bail after appearing in a NY court charged with assault.

This is not the first time that McGregor has been involved in a pre-fight altercation, but it is the first time the police have intervened.

The group went down to the loading dock where some fighters who were to participate in UFC 223 on Saturday were getting on buses. UFC president Dana White revealed at a press conference ahead of Saturday's card at the Barclays Center in NY that McGregor's 155-pound championship will be up for grabs, with the Irishman having not fought in the Octagon since winning his belt in November 2016. Flyweight Ray Borg was deemed unfit to fight due to multiple corneal abrasions. Lobov was also yanked from the UFC 223 card.

McGregor will be allowed to travel back to Ireland before the trail, which is set for June 14.

UFC superstar Conor McGregor may have legitimately cemented himself as the notorious one.

On Thursday, McGregor and his entourage arrived at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, following the end of the UFC 223 media day.

McGregor allegedly threw something through the window of a minibus, injuring a passenger, according to an NYPD source with knowledge of the event.

Videos posted to social media show a chaotic scene, with at least one guardrail being flung and general disorder. "A million security guards had to restrain him".

"I don't think anybody is going to right now". "The dolly hit him, and glass came in and cut him up".

Don't tell me he doesn't love this. "You broke window? Why?" This is big history gangster place.

White added: "If you have a problem with someone in this business, we can handle it - you can literally fight them and do whatever in the rules of fighting".

This afternoon, McGregor appeared in court.

In July 2016, the UFC said it had agreed to be bought by talent agency WME-IMG in a transaction a source valued at $4 billion, one of the largest price tags for a sports brand.

Mixed martial arts reporters don't often spend weigh-in days in courtrooms but then Conor McGregor happened.

White told ESPN that he had a text session with McGregor on Thursday after the incident.
