Dana White Shocked By Conor McGregor’s ‘Disgusting, Criminal’ Act – ‘I Don’t Know If He’s On Drugs’

Dana White Shocked By Conor McGregor’s ‘Disgusting, Criminal’ Act – ‘I Don’t Know If He’s On Drugs’

Conor McGregor crashed a media day event at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Thursday, as Irishman was surrounded by his entourage, landed a guardrail at a bus full of fighters competing at the event and left UFC lightweight fighter Michael Chiesa injured. (Check out here)

What triggered the whole incident is not confirmed, we can possibly assume that Notorious was looking for Khabib Nurmagomedov who was also present on the bus — after “The Eagle” had a hotel altercation with his good friend and training partner, Artem Lobov a few days ago. Lobov was one of the perpetrators and has been removed from his fight against Alex Caceres this weekend.

UFC president Dana White said McGregor now has a warrant out for his arrest, one that prevents him from leaving the state.

Chiesa, who is slated to fight Anthony Pettis, suffered lacerations to his face when objects were hurled at a bus that was at Barclays to transport UFC 223 fighters back to the host hotel, White said.

White also said women’s Strawweight champion Rose Namajunas was nearly hit with a flying chair while riding a bus back to the hotel.

Dana White wasn’t pleased with this whole incidence:

“This is the most disgusting thing that has ever happen in the history of the company. Police are, there is a warrant out for Conor McGregor’s arrest. They are looking for him right now. His plane can not take off. He can not leave the state of New York with this warrant. I am assuming eventually, if they don’t catch him he will turn himself in. You can imagine he is going to be sued beyond belief and this was a real bad career move for him. I think after this disgusting and despicable move, I think everybody relationship (including mine) with Conor is going to be not so great. This is a bad decision you make that turns a lot of people off and against you…. You want to grab 30 fucking friends, come down here, and do what you did today? It’s disgusting! I don’t think anyone is going to be a huge Conor McGregor fan after this. I don’t know if he’s on drugs, or what his deal is, but to come and act like this … We’re talking about a guy who has a baby. He just had a kid. This is how you are acting? You have a son at home.”

However, this is not the first time, Mcgregor caused chaos at UFC event.

Chiesa’s coach, Rick Little told MMAJunkie about his situation if he is able to fight on Saturday:

“Conor went bananas and put a beating on the van that we were in looking for Khabib (Nurmagomedov),” Little said. “A million security guards had to restrain him. Mike’s cut up now. He’s got marks on him, for sure. I don’t think too serious. Everything happened so fast, it was just like we got jumped.”

Chiesa was taken to a hospital for treatment of his cuts, according to White, said he didn’t know if the fighter would be ready by Saturday.
