Conor McGregor makes surprise appearance at UFC 223 media day

"And it's a real bad career move for him".

"No interim champ. When this fight is over, champion", White said. No warrant has been issued, however, according to the New York Police Department, which has confirmed it is investigating an "incident" at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Video footage has emerged on social media of what appears to be McGregor and his entourage storming into the Barclays Centre.

UFC president Dana White told reporters a warrant had been issued to arrest McGregor following the wild attack. And I'm assuming; eventually, if they don't catch him he'll turn himself in. "They're fighters, Rose (Namajunas) and Karolina (Kowalkiewicz) are fighters but these goons are throwing bike racks and chairs and things like that through the window of the bus and didn't care who they hit or who they hurt". The extent of Chiesa's injury is now unknown, and therefore makes the current status of his tilt against Anthony Pettis also unknown.

McGregor was reportedly retaliating after Nurmagomedov confronted the Irishman's pal Artem Lobov earlier this week.

Clearly unhappy about claims that he is set to be stripped and that the victor of UFC 223's main event between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Max Holloway will be the new UFC lightweight champion, "The Notorious" set about the bus which was reportedly carrying Nurmagomedov. "You can come in here and do it legally".

White added: "I don't think anybody is going to want to right now, everyone is going to be pretty disgusted with Conor McGregor right now".

The fact that Diaz didn't pounce on his newly-established superstar status following his pair of fights against Conor McGregor in 2016 is proof that the Stockton lightweight has a unique perspective on fighting. The only one losing a belt here is Conor.

"I don't know if he's on drugs or what his deal is", said White to ESPN's Brett Okamoto just hours after news broke.

At that point he held both the 145lb and 155lb belts, becoming the first fighter to do so in the UFC's history.

Most fighters would have struck while the iron was hot and kept the millions rolling in while his cachet was at its highest but Diaz is different and he's not accepted a bout in nearly two years now.
