The UFC star hit the headlines today after reportedly being charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief in the U.S., after furiously attacking a bus which was carrying his UFC rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.
McGregor, who has not fought for the company since November 2016 when he became the first UFC fighter to ever hold multiple championship belts simultaneously, does not have a fight now scheduled.
Both men are due to appear in court again on 14 June.
"As for defendant McGregor, he is captured on video surveillance picking up a chair and throwing it through a passenger window of that bus, causing injuries to several individuals inside the bus".
The altercation never got physical, but Nurmagomedov could be seen putting his hands on Lobov's face, as you can see in the video above. UFC is working very closely with the New York Athletic Commission, Barclays Center security and law enforcement authorities. The lightweight belt was up for grabs after UFC President Dana White stripped #Conor McGregor of the championship.
But in the history of the UFC, this is definitely the worst thing that's happened. White said credentialed journalists from McGregor's website, The Mac Life, let McGregor and a large entourage into Barclays Center.
Chiesa's coach, Rick Little, describes the rampage saying he felt as if "they got jumped".
The Irishman has been charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief following a backstage disturbance at the UFC 223 media day. "You's'll strip me of nothing", he tweeted, invoking an expletive. "This is not the Conor McGregor that I know", said White.
McGregor claimed the title in November 2016 with a knockout victory over Eddie Alvarez.
The incident is believed to be retaliation for a confrontation between Artem Lobov, one of McGregor's team mates, and Khabib and his team in a hotel last week.
McGregor, a former lightweight and featherweight champion in UFC, has become one of the stars of his sport, best known for his antics and bravado leading up to fights.
McGregor was released on $50,000 bond - pocket change for a fighter who was guaranteed $30 million past year in his ballyhooed boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr.
