For those of you who don’t know, Conor McGregor was accompanied by “approximately 20 guys” at the UFC 223 media event today.
At the event, there were windows of busses containing fighters that were shattered. This left one fighter with cuts to his head and several others “badly shook” according to Dana White.
This took place towards the end of a media day ahead of UFC 223. The incident could potentially be the end of McGregor’s UFC career. According to Dana White, there is a warrant out for McGregor’s arrest.
However, conflicting reports state that there is no warrant and police just want to speak to McGregor.
Dana White spoke to MMA Junkie soon after the incident and here are some of his claims…
Busses containing fighters were attacked
This happened after McGregor and his group were let into the building.
Khabib’s interaction with Lobov in lead up to UFC 223 may have been his motive
Dana White discussed the “beef” McGregor has with Lobov because of the incident.
Michael Chiesa was cut on his face
The 155 pound fighter may be out of Saturday’s event, where he is scheduled to fight former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis. He was in one of the busses that was attacked.
I’m told Chiesa’s cut is on his face. Unclear how serious it is at this time. Most of the fighters have left the arena and are on their way back to the hotel, if not there already.
