  • McGregor UFC223

NY police are seeking to question UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor after he and members of his entourage allegedly attacked a bus and left fighter Michael Chiesa injured, a police spokesman told USA TODAY Sports on Thursday. The spokesperson declined further comment.

DANA White claimed a warrant is out for Conor McGregor's arrest after he tried to launch a barrier at a bus at a UFC media event in NY.

A reporter from TheMacLife.com declined to comment on the incident when approached by MMAjunkie.

Michael Chiesa, who was also in the bus, was taken to hospital with a laceration to his forehead as a result of the chaos.

There's only one question for UFC fans. Broke one of our employees' knuckles.

"Obviously, everybody's shaken up", White said.

"What happened today was criminal, it was disgusting, and we need to make sure it never happens again". Ever since UFC announced that Khabib and Tony Ferguson would be fighting for the title at UFC 223 it's been expected that it meant McGregor, who won the belt in November 2016 and hasn't fought in UFC since, would be losing the title.

"And the worst part is, the women that are on the bus, they're fighters", White said.

McGregor and his entourage made an unexpected appearance at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn following UFC 223 media day. McGregor promptly threw a fit on Twitter, calling what seems to be the entire UFC a pretty lewd word. His plan can not take off.

Okamoto later tweeted that, despite White's claim, the New York Police Department told ABC News that it is investigating the incident and has not issued a warrant.

'I'm assuming, eventually, that if they don't catch him then he'll turn himself in.

White also said this week he did not expect McGregor to attend Saturday's fights.

White was at a loss as to why the promotion's biggest star went unhinged.

White wondered if McGregor was on drugs and chastised him for behaving violently as a father. That said, it's going to be interesting to see what happens next.

"I don't know if he's on drugs or what his deal is, but to come and do this and act like this?" (Expletive), this fight is happening Saturday. Send me location. We have to talk? McGregor's last fight was a crossover fight with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, which drew 4.3 million pay-per-view buys in North America, the second most in history.
