Is this the incident that sparked McGregor's rampage?

The UFC released new video of the melee at the Barclays Center that has superstar fighter Conor McGregor facing charges.

In response, McGregor took himself and his entourage to Barclays Center where they gained access and headed to the loading dock area where buses that held other UFC fighters, including Numagomedov, were scheduled to depart back to hotels.

McGregor, who was not on the card for UFC 223, has been accused of throwing an object through a window of the bus, injuring passengers who were hit by the shattered glass.

Conor McGregor has been released on bail of $50,000 by a NY court.

The next court date was set at June 14th 2018. "The first thing when the throws the dolly through the window, Mike Chiesa, one of the fighters was sitting there", White said.


"I can't speculate. It's like asking me if Charles Manson got released from jail, what would you do?" Just days after spending Thursday in jail following an incident at the UFC 223 media day, the Irish striker was stripped of his UFC lightweight title.

If former UFC champion McGregor is looking for help from the organisation, he is out of luck, UFC president Dana White said on Friday. UFC said three fights on Saturday's UFC 223 card have been scrapped as a result of the incident.

"As you can imagine, he's going to be sued beyond belief", Mr White said.

Dana White has revealed the details of text messages between himself and Conor McGregor after the Irish man was arrested in NY.

"I think Khabib, one of the fighters, disrespected one of his friends".


Chiesa's coach, Rick Little, describes the rampage saying he felt as if "they got jumped".

McGregor (21-3) last fought for UFC in November 2016, when he won the lightweight (155-pound) championship, according to Bleacher Report. Alex Caceres did not have an opponent after Artem Lobov, who was a member of McGregor's group that stormed Barclays Center, was removed from the card.

Journalist Chisanga Malata took to Twitter with the image, claiming that it's Conor McGregor's booking ticket.

The UFC's best-known athlete and an global drawcard McGregor, 29, appeared before a judge at the Kings County Criminal Court, dressed in a blue, long-sleeved shirt that hid his trademark tattoos.

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.
