Conor McGregor Due In New York Court On Assault Charges

Brock Lesnar has not fought in the UFC since a contentious win over Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in July 2016

Conor McGregor turned himself into the New York Police Department on Thursday night after video footage allegedly showed the Irish fighter and his entourage storming the Barclays Center and damaging a bus window at the UFC 223 media day.

McGregor was charged with three counts of assault and one rely of legal mischief, the New York Police Division advised Fox Information.

McGregor's teammate, 25-year-old Cian Cowley, is charged with assault and criminal mischief.

The incident resulted in three scheduled fights for Saturday's event being canceled.

UFC President Dana White said fighter Michael Chiesa, who was on the bus, had been hospitalised following the incident and was being treated for cuts to the face.

On Wednesday, UFC president Dana White announced that the victor of Saturday's fight between Max Holloway and Khabib Nurmagomedov would earn the lightweight championship belt, effectively stripping McGregor of his lightweight title.

White said he had been working on a new mega-deal with McGregor, but those plans have now been scrapped after what White termed "the worst thing ever that's happened" in UFC history.

McGregor has not fought in the UFC since November 2016 and earlier this week was stripped of the 155lb championship title he had never defended.

It added: "The organisation deems today's (Thursday) disruption completely unacceptable and is now working on the consequences that will follow". "I'm devastated to say the least. showtimepettis I hope to run this match up ASAP".

Earlier in the week, Nurmagomedov confronted Artem Lobov, the 29-year-old McGregor's Russian friend, team mate and sparring partner, in a hotel in NY, an incident which may have provoked the Irish fighter.

Speaking to ESPN, Dana White said: "Do you want to be in business with Conor McGregor right now?"

"I give his whole team slap and no one say anything".

According to NBC News, McGregor is expected to be charged with assault after his group reportedly injured fighter Michael Chiesa in the ambush.

The incident has sparked a massive reaction online ahead of Nurmagomedov's fight with Max Holloway at the weekend. Moving to the pay-per-view main card is the featherweight bout between Zabit Magomedsharipov and Kyle Bochniak.

"The big question everybody's been asking me - 'Are you firing Conor McGregor?' - this is bigger than Conor McGregor getting fired", White said.

UFC released a statement saying Ray Borg had "multiple cornea abrasions" and would not be fighting Brandon Moreno.
