Mixed Martial Arts-Chaotic McGregor casts shadow over UFC 223

Mixed Martial Arts-Chaotic McGregor casts shadow over UFC 223

The UFC released new video of the melee at the Barclays Center that has superstar fighter Conor McGregor facing charges. The incident was apparently McGregor's way of having his boy's back, after his friend Artem Lobov got into a scuffle with another UFC fighter, Khabib Nurmagomedov earlier this week.

McGregor, 29, now faces a hosts of charges, including criminal mischief, assault and reckless endangerment.

McGregor, who posted bond Friday and is free to travel, must return for a hearing in June.

UFC President Dana White said he had talked to McGregor about fighting in September but now everything is up in the air. (WARNING: Some language may be offensive) "Conor heard about it and loaded a plane up in Ireland with 20 goons", White said. They snuck into the Barclays Center and attacked a bus containing a number of UFC fighters and employees. "No, you don't get my help on this one".

Barring any difficulty at Friday's weigh-in, the belt will go to the victor of Saturday night's UFC 223 main event pitting Russia's Nurmagomedov (25-0) against featherweight champion Max Holloway (19-3).

McGregor's meltdown left UFC fighter Mike Chiesa with cuts to the face, and landed the famed Irish combatant in Brooklyn's 78th precinct. Fighter Max Holloway tweeted Friday that he'd been forced to withdraw from his top-billed match against Khabib Nurmagomedov for the lightweight title, which UFC is stripping from McGregor because of his long absence from UFC fights.

Fighter Cian Crowley also turned himself into the police and appeared in court Friday.

Former South Korean President Park found guilty
Park, 66, maintains that she's a victim and has been refusing to attend court sessions since October. Aside from the 24 years sentence, the court also fined the former President the sum of $17 million.

"Just tell me where and that's it", Nurmagomedov said.

A mercenary business mind like Dana White would absolutely have no interest in punishing Conor for this - but there's no doubt he'd use it as leverage on the star. I don't think too serious.

Following the press conference, White told reporters that McGregor's priorities should be sorting his legal and personal issues.

White also claims that McGregor and company injured a security guard who happened to be working the event.

McGregor's actions led to the UFC lightweight champion's later arrest.

McGregor profanely responded on Twitter and wrote, "You'll strip me of nothing".

The Irishman reportedly pocketed around US$100 million for the superfight he lost in August in Las Vegas against ex-welterweight champion boxer Floyd Mayweather.
