Conor McGregor Officially Stripped of UFC Title Following UFC 223

Conor McGregor Officially Stripped of UFC Title Following UFC 223

Irish Mixed Martial Arts superstar Conor McGregor was taken to court in NY in handcuffs on Friday, charged with assault and criminal mischief over an extraordinary attack on a bus carrying rival fighters that injured two athletes.

Now, his alleged "official mugshot" has been shared.

Star brawler Conor McGregor is a free man, following a backstage melee in an outburst that could harm his star power.

McGregor was due to be transferred to the criminal court later for an arraignment hearing, Jones said.

MMA reporter Chamatkar Sandhu also claims that this is the official mugshot.

Conor McGregor will have to deal with his legal issues without any help from Dana White, the UFC president said on Friday.

Video showed McGregor with a group of people causing chaos Thursday as they took an elevator to the loading dock at Barclays Center.

However, ABC News reported on Thursday that NY police are still investigating the incident and have not issued a warrant yet. A scuffle broke out between McGregor's camp and Khabib Nurmagomedov's team - Nurmagomedov is scheduled to fight for the lightweight (formerly McGregor's) championship belt in the event.

Chiesa was taken to the hospital, White said, and later was ruled out of his scheduled fight against Anthony Pettis.

Mr White said the incident stemmed from a "confrontation" between UFC fighter Artem Lobov - who is a close friend of McGregor's - and Russian fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov.

White, after telling reporters Wednesday that he believed "100 percent" that McGregor would fight in the UFC again this year, was outraged by the Thursday incident. In wake of the attack, which injured multiple fighters, UFC has reshuffled much of the main card for the pay-per-view event. 'Most of the things I would rather not say, and probably can't say on TV'. "But not in this situation", White said.

Attar is only 8 years removed from a collegiate football career and has been a rising star in sports management since.

He profanely responded on Twitter and wrote, "You'll strip me of nothing".

McGregor last competed eight months ago, losing to undefeated Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match that reportedly paid Mayweather more than $100 million and McGregor at least $30 million. While that was a disingenuous stance for White to take-McGregor is now embroiled in a contract dispute with the promotion and faced Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match that the UFC had a hand in promoting in November-there is no question his continued absence from the cage stalls the lightweight division at a time when it is overflowing with contenders.
