But McGregor couldn't escape all of his problems, as White claimed that a warrant was out for the fighter's arrest and questioned his future within the sport.

Artem Lobov, scheduled to fight Saturday, has been pulled from the UFC 223 card after appearing to be part of the group with McGregor, according to White. He can be seen tossing trash cans and being prevented from throwing a barricade at a bus during his unannounced appearance in NY. "Everything happened so fast, it was just like we got jumped".

After tweeting profanities directed towards the UFC, McGregor arrived at Barclays Center in NY on Thursday to interrupt the UFC 223 press conference and caused quite the scene.

"It's disgusting. And I don't think anybody is going to be huge Conor McGregor fans after this".

Several fighters sustained injuries during Thursday's melee, with Michael Chiesa receiving cuts to the face due to broken glass.

White, meanwhile, called the incident the most despicable thing in UFC history, according to ESPN's Okamoto.

"You don't come into Barclays Centre, attack people that are in a bus that are fighting the next day".

The mistress of ceremony during the concert in Pyongyang will be Seohyun , the group's south Korean K-pop Girl's Generation . No sitting USA president has ever met personally with a North Korean leader since the conclusion of the Korean War.

McGregor was reportedly targeting Nurmagomedov, something White acknowledged.

Chiesa's coach John Wood told ESPN that Chiesa was hospitalized and treated for "lots of small cuts".

"They stormed the building, got down to the docks and started to attack the buses", White said.

McGregor eventually found his way to a back part of the arena and a van that was hauling fighters away when a window was shattered on the vehicle, injuring Michael Chiesa and almost hitting strawweight champion Rose Namajunas, according to multiple reports.

He originally posted on Twitter: "You's'll strip me of nothing you's do nothing c****" with the Barclays Center trouble following later.

"The interim belt that he had, those two [Nurmagomedov and Ferguson] were supposed to fight - doesn't happen".

The 29-year-old McGregor once held the 145 and 155-pound championships at the same time and boldly stated he wanted an ownership stake in UFC. McGregor promptly threw a fit on Twitter, calling what seems to be the entire UFC a pretty lewd word.
