Report: Conor McGregor and entourage attack UFC fighters' bus in Barclays Center garage

NEW YORK (WCMH) -- MMA fighter Conor McGregor and his entourage reportedly swarmed a bus with several UFC fighters on board and began throwing things at them, injuring several people, according to a report Thursday. 

The former UFC lightweight champion stormed the Barclays Center ahead of Saturday's UFC 223, according to ESPN. McGregor is seen on video picking up a traffic barrier and a trash can. 

 

 

TMZ has video of a man, identified as McGregor, throwing a dolly through a bus window. 

UFC fighter Michael Chiesa sustained several cuts to his face in the incident, according to ESPN.  Chiesa is scheduled to fight at UFC 223 on Saturday.

UFC president Dana White told ESPN's Brett Okamoto he thinks people are going to be "pretty disgusted" with what happened.

White also said McGregor's plane cannot leave New York. 

"This was a real bad career move for him," White told Okamoto. 

ESPN reports the NYPD has not issued an arrest warrant for McGregor.

White also told ESPN that UFC fighter Artem Lobov, who has been a teammate of McGregor's for years, was part of the group that attacked the bus; Lobov has been pulled from Saturday's event.
