Former two-division champion Conor Mcgregor and member of his entourage stormed the UFC 223 media day event at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn looking for undefeated Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov, who was onboard a bus about to leave the venue.
Whole hell loose broke due to Nurmagomedov’s altercation with his team-mate Artem Lobov. McGregor threw a metal Dolley on one of the van’s windows, injuring Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg in the process.
UFC color commentator and analyst Joe Rogan have already discussed that Conor McGregor is getting a special treatment following bus rampage is ‘f—ked up.’ while several other fighters who got banned or released by UFC on smaller offense.
UFC President Dana White issued a brief statement on McGregor’s antics, and he seems bit noncommittal on imposing sanctions on Irishman, and that soft stance hasn’t changed much since UFC 223.
“We’ll see,” White told TMZ with a laugh, when asked about any UFC sanctions.
“Well he’s gotta be punished by the law first. Let’s see what happens in New York,” he said. “He’s got to go through that first”
“If you do a fight that big, you’ve got do it in Vegas,” he said. “Khabib will fight in Russia at some point, but it wont be that fight. It’s too big. You’ve got to do it in Vegas.”
Mcgregor was charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief for his actions and is due back in court on June 14.
