UFC star McGregor turns himself in after backstage melee

UFC star McGregor turns himself in after backstage melee

He was released on $50,000 bail and is due back in court on June 14.

Thanks to McGregor's out of pocket actions, a few fights for this weekend's UFC ticket have already been canceled due to injuries inflicted on the passengers in the bus. He can be seen tossing trash cans and being prevented from throwing a barricade at a bus during his unannounced appearance in NY.

A second mixed martial arts fighter, Cian Cowley, was also charged with one count of assault and one count of criminal mischief, police said.

The former UFC champion will be allowed to travel home to Ireland in the wake of his arrest and charges related to an alleged attack on a bus full of rival fighters on Thursday.

Lightweight fighter Michael Chiesa and suffered head and facial cuts from broken glass, White told MMAjunkie.

He stood before a judge in jeans, saying nothing except "yes your honor".

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.

"He's the most visible face on the planet".

A bail bondsman in the case told ESPN that McGregor has to report to him once a week by phone.

"Conor is in a lot of trouble".

Conor Mcgregor has hit an all-time low as he went from champ-champ to no champ to criminal. There are rampant rumors White will fire McGregor over this incident. This is embarrassing for the sport and obviously for the UFC.

McGregor, who wasn't on the UFC 223 card, is accused of three counts of criminal mischief, two counts of assault, one count of attempted assault, five counts of menacing and one count of reckless of endangerment, a court document says. Bail was set for Cowley at US$25,000.

"They opened the doors for them through an entrance and they stormed the building". "Broke one of the windows, cut Michael Chiesa real bad".

McGregor last fought famed boxer Floyd Mayweather in a much-hyped boxing bout in August.

McGregor was also stripped of his UFC lightweight title this week as well.

Max Holloway was ruled out of his scheduled showdown with Khabib Nurmagomedov by the New York State Athletic Commission on Friday morning.

After the incident, social media blew up with criticisms, excuses and conspiracy theories suggesting the melee was a publicity stunt. "You's'll strip me of nothing", he tweeted, invoking an expletive.
