New footage surfaces of Conor McGregor's insane meltdown

New footage surfaces of Conor McGregor's insane meltdown

The incident Thursday at the Barclays Center left at least two athletes injured and unable to fight in Saturday night's UFC 223, set to be held at the same arena, UFC said.

One of his accomplices, Cian Cowley, had his bail set at £17,500 ($25,000). He was released on $50,000 bail and is due back in court on June 14.

After a series of plot twists befitting a Broadway theatre, the UFC had hoped to bring clarity to its chaotic lightweight division with Saturday's UFC 223 fight card in Brooklyn, but it will be overshadowed by the one man not on it - Conor McGregor. Video from TMZ Sports shows someone picking up a two-wheeled dolly and throwing it into a bus window, smashing the glass.

White also said that he had texted with McGregor and that the fracas stemmed from lingering bad blood between Khabib Nurmagomedov and McGregor's teammate, Artem Lobov.

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

Security arrived early to the Barclays Center before the fight.

At one point, McGregor pounds on bus windows with his fists, screaming, "Get out, get out!" His bail was set at US$50,000, but his passport will not be seized by USA authorities and he will be allowed to fly back to his native Ireland.

UFC superstar Conor McGregor is in custody in NY following a van-smashing rampage at a press event.

Evan Jenkins and State Attorney General Patrick Morrisey - attended the event, sitting on either side of the president. He repeated his unfounded and unsubstantiated claim that "millions and millions of people" voted illegally in 2016. .

Flyweight Ray Borg suffered "multiple corneal abrasions" and will also be unable to fight.

McGregor has not fought in UFC since beating Eddie Alvarez in November 2016 and was stripped of his lightweight title before this incident. McGregor and his pals fled the scene afterwards, but he later turned himself in.

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

"Most of the things I'd rather not say and probably can't say". Can't see him being able to beat @TheNotoriousMMA in fact I think he gets knocked clean out. He said "Don't know who to credit, so hit me up if you're the OP".

McGregor's rival Khabib Nurmagomedov also sent a message to the Irishman, stating: "Just tell me where".

However, ABC News reported on Thursday that NY police are still investigating the incident and have not issued a warrant yet.

He took time off to await the birth of his son, Conor Jack, and lost to Floyd Mayweather his professional boxing debut last August.
