At the Brooklyn's Kings County Criminal Court he was charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief relating to his attack on a UFC 223 fighter bus the previous day. One possible reason given for McGregor's attack is that he was still livid over the UFC's decision to strip him of his lightweight title due to inactivity on Wednesday; he had not fought since 2016.

The next court date was set at June 14th 2018.

The 29-year-old Russian recently had a public confrontation with Artem Lobov, a friend and training partner of McGregor's who was scratched from his fight at UFC 223 because of his involvement in the incident. "The first thing when the throws the dolly through the window, Mike Chiesa, one of the fighters was sitting there", White said.

UFC president Dana White called the incident, "the most disgusting thing that has ever happened in the history of the company".

"No ... no", White said on the program when asked if he would help Conor on this one. He came into the Barclays Center, attacked our fighters, and attacked my staff with a bunch of guys - no.

The altercation never got physical, but Nurmagomedov could be seen putting his hands on Lobov's face, as you can see in the video above.

The judge set bail at US$50,000 (RM194,000) in a package that allows McGregor to travel without restriction.

Barring any difficulty at Friday's weigh-in, the belt will go to the victor of Saturday night's UFC 223 main event pitting Russia's Nurmagomedov (25-0) against featherweight champion Max Holloway (19-3).

Flyweight Ray Borg suffered "multiple corneal abrasions" and will also be unable to fight.

McGregor reportedly turned up unannounced at the end of the UFC 223 press event.

After he smashed up the bus containing Khabib and a number of other fighters, he later handed himself in to the police, where he was contained from the early hours of Friday morning.

This is not Conor McGregor.

Lightweight fighter Michael Chiesa was hospitalised with cuts to his face.

TMZ reports Chiesa met with authorities twice on Thursday and eventually filed a report against McGregor.

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

McGregor's rival Khabib Nurmagomedov also sent a message to the Irishman, stating: "Just tell me where".
