UFC 223: Nine Fights Emerge From Conor McGregor And Commissioning Chaos!

McGregor was arrested this week after he and a group of friends charged a coach carrying a group of UFC fighters - including Nurmagomedov - after a press conference in Brooklyn.

A second mixed martial arts fighter, Cian Cowley, faces three criminal mischief, one assault and one reckless endangerment charge, police said.

McGregor will now have a hearing on 14 June.

White suggested last month McGregor's reign as lightweight champion was set to end following UFC 223 due to inactivity. At one point, video from inside the bus shows a hand truck smashing through the bus windows, cutting UFC fighter Mike Chiesa's face. White said he's been in touch via text message with McGregor, who told him he's sorry innocent people got hurt but isn't apologetic about addressing the beef.

"As you can imagine, he's going to be sued beyond belief", Mr White said.

"Normally, yes, I would dive right in and do everything in my power to help one of my guys".

"During today's media event at Barclays Center to promote UFC 223: Khabib vs. Holloway, Conor McGregor and Artem Lobov entered the building accompanied by over a dozen individuals".

At one point, McGregor pounds on bus windows with his fists, screaming, "Get out, get out!"

McGregor will not have his passport revoked as part of his bail package, so he'll be free to return to Ireland for now.

101st soldiers killed in helicopter crash at Fort Campbell
Marine Corps jet crashed at the country's global airport and a Marine Corps helicopter sustained "minor damage" Tuesday. An Apache helicopter went down around 10 p.m. local time, killing two soldiers from the 101st Combat Aviation Brigade.

Due to the injuries, three fights were taken off the card for UFC 223. Flyweight Ray Borg will also miss his bout with Brandon Moreno after he was hit in the eye with shattered glass.

The Irishman turned himself in to police late on Thursday (Friday NZ time) after the violent incident at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

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

"Give me 30 minutes rest, little drink of water", Nurmagomedov said.

The fracas left fighter Michael Chiesa with a cut on the top of his head that required hospitalization. "It's not that I don't think he understood what happened, it's just. he justified it, it was justified to him".

"Defendant McGregor also throws a punch at someone who was on security detail".

"I feel that when you have reached such high status you have to carry yourself in a classy way", Mayweather said of McGregor.

McGregor's manager issued a statement on Saturday saying there was "misinformation" circulating about the Irish superstar.
