Watch: Conor McGregor Has Arrived In NY, Causes Chaos As He Gatecrashes UFC Media Event

Conor Mcgregor arrived in Brooklyn and storms UFC 223 media day.

UFC president Dana White made his intentions clear regarding the lightweight title on Wednesday at the UFC 223 pre-fight press conference. He officially confirmed that McGregor will be stripped of his belt, and will fight in UFC this year — just not as a lightweight champion.

White mentioned previously, whoever wins Saturday’s bout between undefeated Nurmagomedov and Hawaiian Holloway will, therefore, head straight into a mega fight with McGregor later this year.

However, Mcgregor is clearly not happy on being stripped of his title and tweeted this morning where he defies UFC officials.

McGregor might not be fighting at UFC 223, but the Notorious will be in attendance to support teammate Artem Lobov and watch the title lightweight title bout between Max Holloway and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

White claimed yesterday that McGregor wouldn’t be in attendance at UFC 223, despite the fact that two men will be fighting for his lightweight title.

Well here you go, in true McGregor fashion, the Irishman dramatically stormed into the Barclays Centre as Thursday’s media day wrapped up.

MMAFighting’s Ariel Helwani reported that McGregor’s entourage launched metal at a van taking the fighters back to the host hotel and that UFC lightweight Michael Chiesa got injured in the mayhem.

To remind you, Artem Lobov was involved in a hotel altercation with Nurmagomedov earlier in the week, it makes one wonder whether we’re going to see McGregor support his teammate over the coming days by confronting his Russian rival.
