That’s not the first time Mcgregor faced charges. Back in April of 2018, McGregor stormed the Barclay’s Center with his members of entourage at UFC 223 media day activities hurled a metal dolly through the bus window transporting UFC fighters back to the hotel which caused several injuries and cancellation of few fights.
