Adjust Comment Print

McGregor and his entourage entered the Barclays Center in Brooklyn around 1.30pm (6.30pm Irish time) on Thursday and threw a hand truck at a bus transporting fighters from a UFC 223 promotional event.

Conor McGregor was released Friday on $50,000 bail for felony criminal mischief and other charges. His next court hearing will be on June 14. At one point he can be seen running for a dolly before picking it up and throwing it at the moving vehicle, breaking a window through which passengers can be seen.

"I can't speculate. It's like asking me if Charles Manson got released from jail, what would you do?"

"With much regret, and after careful review, a joint decision was made between the state athletic commission and the UFC", Kim Sumbler, NYSAC executive director said at Friday's official weigh-ins before Saturday's card at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, per the Washington Post.

The incident comes after White stripped McGregor of his lightweight title because of inactivity.

UFC president Dana White has said the van attack was "the most disgusting thing that ever happened in the history" of the UFC.

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

McGregor was apparently acting in retaliation after one of the fighters on the bus, Khabib Nurmagomedov, had confronted UFC fighter and McGregor's friend and teammate Artem Lobov, earlier this week.

"Obviously the big question everybody's been asking me, 'are you firing Conor McGregor?'".

The police have charged McGregor with three counts of assault over the incident. "You's'll strip me of nothing", he tweeted, invoking an expletive.

White, who furiously rejected claims the attack was a stunt, told ESPN: "We had a text session yesterday that was not very good".

By the time Russia's Nurmagomedov and Iaquinta face off across the Octagon in Brooklyn, 511 days will have passed since McGregor won the title from Eddie Alvarez across the bridge at the Madison Square Garden in Manhattan in November 2016.

McGregor, who has a fierce rivalry with Nurmagomedov, was said to be incensed by the incident with Lobov, and immediately flew to NY in a rage. McGregor was instructed by the judge to stay away from both fighters.

McGregor was released on $50,000 bond - pocket change for a fighter who was guaranteed $30 million a year ago in his ballyhooed boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr.
