After crashing today’s UFC 223 press event in Brooklyn—throwing a barricade, injuring multiple fighters, and sparking a huge damn mess—Conor McGregor is reportedly in custody and is expected to be charged with assault.
Earlier this afternoon, immediately following the outburst, UFC president Dana White said that a warrant was out for McGregor’s arrest. An NYPD spokesperson denied that at the time, though the department did say that they wanted to speak to the fighter:
Two fights have been canceled due to injuries that came from McGregor’s frenzy: Michael Chiesa-Anthony Pettis, as Chiesa suffered forehead lacerations, and Ray Borg-Brandon Moreno, since Borg got a shard of glass in his eye. UFC has also pulled Arteem Lobov, who is a teammate of McGregor’s and accompanied him here, from his previously scheduled fight with Alex Caceres.
