Last month, former two-division champion Conor Mcgregor went on a melee backstage at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, attacked a bus carrying undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov and a number of his fellow fighters, throwing a dolly through one of its windows, injuring several fighters including Ray Borg and Michael Chiesa.
Irishman’s wild antics nearly cost Rose Namajunas, and Thug Rose would go on to win a hard-fought decision against Joanna Jedrzejczyk. McGregor did direct-message the champion Rose Namajunas on social media to offer his apologies in the wake of his shenanigans, but Namajunas simply said “F–k that.

“I saw Conor McGregor hitting the windows, then saw Rose Namajuans crying while Pat was protecting her face. Cheisa’s face was blood stained. My coaches told me to hide, but I wanted to see what was going on, but they kept me under the seats. And that’s all, in my opinion Conor bent a little, he probably realized what happened afterward and he wrote an apology letter to me. I have no intention of suing anyone. Growing up in LODZ I saw worse things.”
This chaotic attack resulted in three fights being called off, along with Irishman being held in police custody and facing multiple charges. McGregor is due back in court which is set for June 14. Until then Mcgregor’s future in UFC is in the air.
