Video Shows View From Inside Bus As Conor McGregor Throws Dolly

Dana White and Conor McGregor

During the UFC 223 press day, McGregor, his good friend Lobov and members of their team rampaged the backstage area of Barclays Center and proceeded to attack one of the UFC buses containing fighters.

The founder of Paradigm Sports Management, and Conor McGregor's agent, Audie Attar has released a statement in regards to the events of the past few days. And, he would face 3 charges for assault on Friday.

McGregor was in court to face charges of criminal mischief, misdemeanor assault and menacing and reckless endangerment after he and his associates were filmed storming a UFC event in New York City, sparking a melee.

According to multiple witnesses, McGregor ran into the arena's loading dock and began hurling objects at a bus, which was taking a group of UFC fighters to a nearby hotel.

McGregor is now scheduled to return to court in NY on June 14.

On Friday, Conor McGregor turned himself into police.

Conor had his first hearing in front of the court on Friday in NY where he was charged with three counts of assault and one of criminal mischief, a judge ordered a bail of $50,000 for Conor and $25,000 for his ally in the attack and friend, Cian Cowley.


"Approximately 20 guys were apparently let in through the doors by the Mac Life guys, who were credentialled here", UFC president Dana White said, referencing McGregor's brand and its employees who allegedly helped the Dublin native and his crew.

The clip also shows the reaction from the fighters on the bus with Michael Chiesa suffering a cut to the head. His bail was set at $25,000. Attar said McGregor is looking forward to fighting as soon as possible.

Conor McGregor's future with the company is in doubt.

"People get into arguments and things get broken, fists are flying more times than not", he said.

In January‚ the UFC announced that Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson would fight for the undisputed lightweight title at Saturday's MMA event‚ known as UFC 223. While that was a disingenuous stance for White to take-McGregor is now embroiled in a contract dispute with the promotion and faced Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match that the UFC had a hand in promoting in November-there is no question his continued absence from the cage stalls the lightweight division at a time when it is overflowing with contenders.

McGregor crossed over to boxing in August and Mayweather knocked him out in the 10th round of the second-highest grossing fight in history. He goes on to add that the commission do not recognise this as a title fight, but if Iaquinta was to win... they would award him the lightweight title.
