Conor McGregor, crew allegedly cause chaotic scene after UFC 223 media day, Chiesa cut.
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.

Dana White: Brock Lesnar is coming back to the UFC
One of the UFC’s biggest box office draws could be headed back to the Octagon.

Conor McGregor to UFC: you's'll strip me of nothing...
Dana White said Wednesday that the UFC will be stripping Conor McGregor of the lightweight title. As expected, McGregor isn’t going to go accept that without a fight. “The Notorious” tweeted an ornery — and vulgar — response to White’s words early Thursday morning. “You’s’ll strip me of nothing you’s do nothing c*nts,” McGregor wrote. Khabib Nurmagomedov will fight Max Holloway in what the promotion is calling a UFC lightweight title fight in the main event of UFC 223 on Saturday in Brooklyn. The issue is that McGregor is still technically the lightweight champion and has been since November 2016. White has said that McGregor will cease to be champ as soon as the first punch is thrown this weekend at Barclays Center.
