UFC president Dana White claimed that The Notorious, 29, told him in a text message conversation that the attack "had to be done", The Sun reports. It was justified to him.

"He came into the Barclays Center, attacked our fighters and attacked my staff with a bunch of guys".

In January, the UFC said Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson would fight for the undisputed lightweight title at Saturday's event, known as UFC 223.

It appeared 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.

When asked if he thought McGregor would return to the promotion before Thursday's antics, he said: "Oh absolutely".

The fallout from the melee has seen three fighters sidelined from their bouts this weekend, while Artem Lobov has been pulled from the card by UFC for his alleged involvement.

"No ... no", White said.

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

UFC star Conor McGregor was in negotiations on a new deal with the UFC prior to his outburst at UFC 223's media day that left two fighters injured and led to his arrest.

"Most of the things I'd rather not say and probably can't say".

McGregor hasn't fought for UFC since November 2016 and was stripped this week by White of the 155-pound championship he had never defended.

A second MMA fighter - 25-year-old Cian Cowley of Dublin - has also been charged as a result of the incident. That's all I have to say for now.

McGregor, from Dublin, Ireland, is one of the biggest pay-per-view draws in UFC history, having been the headliner on four of the largest grossing events in the company's history.

Aside from his athletic success, McGregor is known for his beard and colorful tattoos, taste in expensive and flashy clothes, and aggressive taunting of opponents that stands out even among professional fighters.

He previously told Reuters he made an eye-watering $196 million from last August's boxing match with Floyd Mayweather but has not fought in the Octagon since the win over Alvarez.

White said during Wednesday's pre-fight press conference that "one of these guys will be the (lightweight) champion, period" in reference to Holloway and Nurmagomedov.
