Dana White Confirmed Arrest Warrant Out For Conor Mcgregor, Artem Lobov Off The Card

Conor McGregor is apparently pissed that the UFC will strip him of his lightweight championship crown. Mcgregor made a surprise appearance on Thursday at Barclays Center directly following media day, as Irishman Crashes UFC 223 Presser, Throws Barricade, Injures main card competitor Michael Chiesa in the process and then Flees away.

Michael Chiesa, who is scheduled to face Anthony Pettis at UFC 223, suffered a laceration on his face in the incident, per MMAFighting.com’s Ariel Helwani. Other fighters on the bus were “shaken up,” per Helwani.

In the midst of a serious incident involving Conor McGregor today, UFC 223 has lost one of its fights.

Artem Lobov, one of McGregor’s SBG Ireland training partner in Dublin, has been pulled from his preliminary card featherweight fight against Alex Caceres as per UFC president Dana White. Lobov was named as one of the perpetrators of the crashing festivities.

It isn’t clear at the moment whether Caceres will receive his show money for the canceled matchup.

As per Dana White, police warrant has been out for Conor Mcgregor, after Irishman picked up a guardrail and landed at a bus of UFC fighters at a press conference for UFC 223 in Brooklyn:

”There is a warrant out for Conor’s arrest. The NYPD are looking for him. He can’t leave on his place.”

”Artem was involved too, he’s off the card. I hope they all get arrested, the people from MacLife too. They used their credentials to sneak them in. A handful of people are already filing lawsuits against McGregor.”

”This has never happened in my history of the UFC. What happened today was criminal, it was disgusting, and we need to make sure it never happens again.”
