Shortly thereafter, video surfaced of McGregor causing trouble in the depths of Barclays Center, throwing a railing and chairs at one of the buses set to transport fighters back to the host hotel.
Conor McGregor has lashed out at Dana White after the UFC supremo notified the Irishman he would be stripped of his lightweight championship. He can be seen tossing trash cans and being prevented from throwing a barricade at a bus during his unannounced appearance in NY.
The 29-year-old wrote: "You's'll strip me of nothing you's do nothing c**ts".
"One of these guys is the champion", White said while referring to Nurmagomedov and Holloway at the dais.
In hugely disappointing news for fight fans, Ferguson was forced to pull out of the bout due to injury, meaning it's the fifth occasion a fight between the pair has been cancelled for various reasons.
Dana White said warrant is out for Conor McGregor's arrest.
"I mean even the police officer who came to me about this was like "God I was of his too".
Conor McGregor is here for UFC 223 fight week and is making his presence felt.
"I think they want him to look nice", Nurmagomedov said. Ferguson and Nurmagomedov had been booked to fight each other four times, yet all four fights have been called off.
"It's the last fight on earth that I want to make again". But if you ask the Dagestan fighter, he would have already proven who the best in the world is if he wins at UFC 223. From the moment their UFC 223 matchup was announced, it seemed 50-50 at best that they'd actually make it to the ring in one piece. It's possible, but we've also seen McGregor take verbal shots at the UFC like this in the past, only to proceed with business as usual.
