Dana White: ‘It’s disgusting! I don’t think anyone is going to be a huge Conor McGregor fan after this.’
Dana White in shock after the UFC 223 incident as Conor McGregor and his team stormed media day festivities as they were winding down and attacked a bus full of fighters competing at the event this Saturday.
McGregor attacked the bus, going after Khabib Nurmagomedov — who was on the bus — after had a confrontation with his (McGregor’s) friend and training partner, Artem Lobov a few days ago at the hotel.
Artem Lobov was part of the mob and has subsequently been removed from his fight against Alex Caceres this weekend- White confirmed
Some fighters were injured, Micheal Chiesa apparently suffered a facial laceration during the whole drama, while women’s Strawweight champion Rose Namajunas was nearly hit with a flying chair.
Dana White admonishes Conor McGregor’s criminal actions in the following video:
“This is the most disgusting thing that has ever happen in the history of the company. Police are, there is a warrant out for Conor McGregor’s arrest. They are looking for him right now. His plane can not take off. He can not leave the state of New York with this warrant.
I am assuming eventually, if they don’t catch him he will turn himself in. You can imagine he is going to be sued beyond belief and this was a real bad career move for him. I think after this disgusting and despicable move, I think everybody relationship (including mine) with Conor is going to be not so great.
This is a bad decision you make that turns a lot of people off and against you….
You want to grab 30 fucking friends, come down here, and do what you did today? It’s disgusting! I don’t think anyone is going to be a huge Conor McGregor fan after this. I don’t know if he’s on drugs, or what his deal is, but to come and act like this …
We’re talking about a guy who has a baby. He just had a kid. This is how you are acting? You have a son at home.”
Well, this is not the first time McGregor has caused a ruckus at a UFC event… here are few examples that we reported previously:
- Conor McGregor ‘Jeopardized’ Health of Participants, ‘Assaulted’ Referee – President Mike Mazzulli
- Chaos Erupts As Conor McGregor Jumps Into Bellator Cage And Starts Fight With Referee
- Conor McGregor Allegedly Involved in Barroom Brawl With Irish Gangster In Dublin Pub
It looked bad already, but this is even worse. Hoping Michael Chiesa is still OK to fight, but if not, I suspect he'll get money back – straight from Conor McGregor's bank account. https://t.co/wyPztp68xE

But by the sound of it, it could be the last. What do you think?
