MMA community and Social media erupted after witnessing Conor McGregor hurl a metal sack barrow landed at the window of a bus containing several of UFC fighters -injuring two.
UFC president Dana White couldn’t hide the shock and disappointment in his voice called last week’s melee a “disgusting and despicable move.”
Former middleweight champion Michael Bisping is one fighter who actually have a different perspective on this incident and applauds Conor Mcgregor for defending his boy:
“There are no gangs in MMA,” Bisping told TMZ. “There are gangs in England. There are gangs in Dublin. There’s gangs all over the world just like right here. There are no gangs in MMA. Conor is not trying to be a gangster. Conor is just trying to look after his boys, right? Which you got to applaud him for. He made a mistake. That’s all it is.”
After all the chaos, Mcgregor surrendered to police at the department’s 78th Precinct on Thursday night. He was charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief and ordered to return to court on June 14. McGregor’s status is unclear at this time.
Artem Lobov was also involved in Thursday’s rampage which resulted in his discharge from UFC 223 and could face disciplinary action in future.
Michael Bisping’s retirement fight still hasn’t been booked, but the former UFC middleweight champion recently expressed interest in joining the UFC Liverpool.
