Former two-division champion Conor McGregor is currently facing three charges of assault and one charge of criminal mischief following his Bus melee at the UFC 223 media day in Brooklyn.
No doubt Irishman is promotion’s biggest Pay-Per-View draw, but due to of his antics, that left Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg with facial lacerations respectively, further fuelled the fire for a fight with Khabib, which has been burning ever since UFC 205. McGregor apologizes to few fighters, but some were still unhappy.

“Conor’s got some serious stuff going on and I wish nothing but the best for the guy,”
”I feel bad for the guy right now with his legal issues and I hope everything goes good for him.
”As a family man to a family man, I hope everything turns out good for him.”
Hawaiian is open to fighting Mcgregor if he clears out his legal issues or any best guy UFC signs him.
Max Holloway hasn’t competed since a third-round TKO of Jose Aldo at UFC 218 this past December and riding a 12 fights win streak.
Holloway will defend his featherweight title against rising contender Brian Ortega at UFC 226 pay-per-view event this Saturday, July 7th. Moreover, during a recent UFC 226 media conference call, Holloway said he would like to go up to the lightweight division, but the division is a bit logjam at the moment, so he’ll wait before making a change.
At least one UFC fighter who’s backing Mcgregor and rooting for his legal case to give him good results.
