O Conor McGregor!
The 29-year-old Irish brawler hurled a police barricade at a bus following a press conference at Barclays hyping a lightweight UFC fight on Saturday between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Max Holloway.
McGregor was upset because UFC officials have decided to strip him of his lightweight championship after the fight between the other contenders. He hasn’t fought in a UFC event since 2016 – though he famously took on Floyd Mayweather Jr, in the boxing ring on Aug. 26, 2017.
The bus McGregor attacked had fighters who will be participating in Saturday’s competition.
Cian Cowley, 23, was part of McGregor’s entourage and added to the mayhem on Thursday, law enforcement source said. He also turned himself in at the 78th Pct. station house and was arrested for assault, officials said.
