The Irish fighter gatecrashed the event on the day he was stripped of his world lightweight title. Footage appeared to show him trying to throw a railing and chairs at a bus carrying other fighters. UFC president Dana White called it “one of the most disgusting things” that had happened in the sport’s history. In an interview with ESPN, White said he believed McGregor and “20 guys” got into the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where UFC fighters were boarding a bus after a news conference. Footage appeared on the Instagram story of undercard fighter Felice Herrig with the caption: “Conor McGregor causing trouble”. The NYPD later said McGregor was wanted for questioning before he turned himself in. He has not been charged and investigations are ongoing, police say.
