Here's the moment Conor McGregor attacks a bus in New York

  • Brock Lesnar has not fought in the UFC since a contentious win over Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in July 2016

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

The NYPD has yet to confirm that a warrant has been issued, with reports instead suggesting police are "trying to make contact" with McGregor. "Do you want to be in business with Conor McGregor right now?" He was treated at a nearby hospital and released.

"UFC is working very closely with the New York Athletic Commission, Barclays Centre security and law enforcement authorities". "I'm devastated to say the least". Michael Chiesa faced multiple lacerations on his face while Ray Borg had a piece of glass scrap his eye.

It added: "The organisation deems today's (Thursday) disruption completely unacceptable and is now working on the consequences that will follow".

The incident resulted in three scheduled fights for Saturday's event being canceled.

The fall-out from the melee has seen two fighters withdraw from their bouts this weekend, while Artem Lobov has been pulled from the card by UFC for his alleged involvement. "This is the type of bad decision you make that turns people against you".

UFC lost three fights for its Saturday pay-per-view event directly connected to the incident involving McGregor, the UFC said in a statement late Thursday.

"Listen, you don't like Khabib, and you don't like what happened or whatever, then fight Khabib", White said.

"This fight's happening Saturday. You want 10-on-10? OK". Come inside. You know UFC don't let you come inside.

White says McGregor is guilty of "completely irrational behaviour".

And McGregor was charged just before 9am Irish time and is due to appear in court in NY later today.

White said he's still dumbfounded by McGregor's actions. One of McGregor's cohorts also allegedly threw a chair through the bus's windshield.

McGregor was the 155-pound champion in the UFC but hadn't had a UFC fight since November 2016.

Mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor has not participated in sanctioned combat since his August 2017 boxing match with Floyd Mayweather.

Nurmagomedov went on to promote the idea that McGregor was scared to face him during his year-and-a-half stint away from MMA, and the pair exchanged words on social media before colliding with each other in Brooklyn.

But this wasn't the first time both fighters clashed heads.

"His passport was tagged so he couldn't get on his private jet to fly back to Ireland".

"I think after this disgusting and despicable move, everybody's relationship with Conor will change", White said.
