Conor's bratty text to UFC boss

McGregor told White that he was apologetic about upsetting or injuring other fighters on the bus, but he did not express remorse about the incident itself, according to White.

In the underbelly of a New York arena 17 months later, McGregor went wild, using a dolly, chairs and guard rails as weapons, not his fists.

Aside from his athletic success, McGregor is known for his beard and colorful tattoos, taste in expensive and flashy clothes, and aggressive taunting of opponents that stands out even among professional fighters.

The Irish father-of-one was also captured on surveillance throwing a chair toward a passenger window of the bus and punched a member of a security detail, his Brooklyn arraignment heard Friday. However, a civil lawsuit might be the least of Conor's problems at this point. In my opinion, Conor McGregor crossed the line and doesn't deserve a spot in the UFC. The windows of the bus were busted and sent shards of glass at the passengers.

Lobov was yanked from the card and banned from the building. He faces one charge of assault and one charge of criminal mischief.

A Brooklyn judge set McGregor's bail at $50,000 Friday afternoon.

White then added: "This was an actual dangerous profession transfer for him".


CNN could not immediately reach representatives for McGregor or Cowley for comment. "He has no criminal history and the bail package is completely appropriate", McGregor's lawyer Jim Walden told the court. It's hard to believe that McGregor would call the UFC organization a bunch of "c*nts" in public, MMA Junkie cited.

- It's not that I don't think he understood what happened.

Customers can receive a refund where they bought their tickets, if they choose, UFC said.

UFC President Dana White said Friday he spoke to McGregor via text and the brawler said the confrontation "had to be done".

McGregor reacted angrily to the decision on social media. (WARNING: Some language may be offensive) "Conor heard about it and loaded a plane up in Ireland with 20 goons", White said.

A New York Police Department spokesman said: 'He (McGregor) has been charged with three counts of assault and one of criminal mischief'. The flyweight bout between Ray Borg and Brandon Moreno was also cancelled due to glass flying into the eyes of the former 125-pound title challenger.

Lightweight fighter Michael Chiesa reportedly suffered a cut to his forehead during the altercation. Pettis is expected to face Khabib in the main event in Holloway's place. "This is embarrassing for the sport and obviously for the UFC". The respective bouts of the latter were taken off the card, along with Artem Lobov's fight, who was allegedly involved in the incident.
