Conor McGregor has made his presence felt at UFC 223.

McGregor and his entourage stormed the Barclays Center following UFC 223 media day in Brooklyn on Thursday and caused a wild scene that left one individual — lightweight contender Michael Chiesa — with a laceration. Chiesa is scheduled to fight Anthony Pettis on Saturday night. At the moment, the severity of his injury is unclear.

MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani reported that McGregor’s team ultimately attacked a van filled with fighters just as it was departing the arena, banging on the vehicle and throwing chairs through a window. Video shot by fighters onboard shows McGregor ordering an unidentified individual to get out of the van before being taken away by security, Helwani reported.

UFC 223 headliner Khabib Nurmagomedov and his team were in the van in question.

Nurmagomedov and his team were involved in a hotel altercation with McGregor’s longtime SBG Ireland teammate, Artem Lobov, on Tuesday.

Video of McGregor’s scene at the Barclays Center can be seen below.

To say I was not into every single second of every piece of footage would be a lie. I am watching the Masters right now, arguably my favorite sporting event of the year and I could not take my eyes off of Conor & Co. This is a HUGE black eye for the sport. Conor is out of control. Dana has given him such a long leash that he's out there biting and harming others. Conor is a fucking clown. Team Khabib > Team SBG. ALL. DAMN. DAY. If Conor pulled this shit in the streets, him and Artem would be in a morgue once it was all done. Fuck you, Conor.

P.S. I feel for Chiesa. Damn. I really hope it's nothing serious.
P.P.S. For Joanna to say Conor is crazy, DAMN!

Dana pulled Artem off the card since he was involved. And a warrant is issued for Conor's arrest.

Source?

Wow. Sucks a fat one for Caceres. Hopefully he gets his show money if he makes weight, and even better if they choose to pay him tonight.

I put on The MMA Beat, Ariel and Chuck and all the rest of them are reporting it on the show right when the info comes in. Sites should be posting it soon.

Dana just did an interview with mmajunkie, he's pissed! The fb video is in this link from mmamania. Link

Rose decided she'll fight, so no problem there anymore. She almost got hit when that was all happening and ended up walking back to the hotel instead of going on the bus.

What a fucking idiot. Pretty sure Lobov just ended his UFC career, also saw Charlie Ward in the footage too

Just spoke to a spokesman for the NYPD. There is no warrant out for Conor McGregor’s arrest at this time, he said. They are, though, looking for him and want to speak with him, the spokesman said. No one has filed charges against McGregor at this moment.

Conor in that case will probably flee back to Ireland

Two good TMZ videos, one from inside the bus and one from outside. Probably the best videos out there of the incident.

Outside the bus:





Inside the bus:

I think Conor McGregor should never be allowed to fight in the UFC ever again.

He's a real sack of shit honestly. Disgusting human being. Hope he loses all of his money to lawsuits and we never hear his name again. Really good example to set for his kid...

If he gets charged for this incident, Will he even be allowed to get a visa and enter the US again? I'm not sure how that all works out, but you haev to think it would be pretty difficult for someone from another country to enter the US and get charged for a crime they committed there and still be able to enter that country afterwards.

I was done with him after the way he carried on during the Lobov vs Fili fight, then a few weeks later he pushed the ref Marc Goddard. Ever since then I don't really care for the guy.
