Dana White: Unapologetic Conor Mcgregor May End Up Convicted Felon

Conor McGregor and his team of entourage stormed the UFC media day event at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Thursday, thrown objects, dollies and allegedly injured one of the fighters being transported by the promotion via van.

Conor McGregor surrendered himself to New York police Thursday night and was arrested and charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief. He was held overnight and remained in police custody until this morning as he awaited a court appearance in Brooklyn.

Three fights scratched from UFC 223 due to Mcgregor’s melee last night.

Unapologetic Mcgregor justified his antics to UFC president Dana White, which was appeared to be a retaliation of Khabib Nurmagomedov’s hotel altercation with his teammate Artem Lobov earlier this week.

“Conor and I talked through text yesterday, obviously the worst conversation we have ever had, ” White told Fox Sports 1’s “First Things First” (via Washington Post). “It’s not that I don’t think he understood what happened, it’s just … he justified it, it was justified to him. … [He thought] it had to be done.”

Mcgregor is expected to appear before the judge later this morning where his fate will be concluded. Mcgregor has been banned from tomorrow night’s pay-per-view (PPV) inside Barclays Center.

Cian Cowley, an SBG teammate of Conor McGregor and a fellow MMA fighter, was also charged with one count of assault and one count of criminal mischief as per reports from MMA fighting.

Dana White said he could end up a convicted felon.

“I honestly don’t know the answer to that question (if he’ll fight in the UFC again),” White told ESPN’s “Get Up” morning show (via MMA Junkie). “We were working on a new deal and new plan for him all this week, and then he shows up and this happens.”

”We were working on a new deal that was going to pay him ridiculous money,” White said. “There’s still the talk of the Floyd Mayweather fight potentially happening (in the UFC), and he’s a sponsor’s dream. I have no explanation for it.”

UFC 223 is set to go down Saturday night, April 7, at Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn New York.
