UFC Star Conor McGregor Trashes Company Van, Injuring Other Fighter

Conor McGregor

Dana White is furious with Conor McGregor. During today's surprise appearance at the Barclays Center, Conor showed up with his crew and not only trashed the backstage area but also threw some kind of object at a UFC van, which caused some facial lacerations due to glass shards for lightweight grappler Michael Chiesa who was expected to face Anthony Pettis at UFC 223 but now that is looking to be unlikely if the lacerations are severe.

White has said he might not ever work with McGregor again following the incident and asked the reporter from ESPN a rhetorical question: "would you?"

The UFC president even believes that Conor McGregor may have ruined his whole career with this stunt. He has also pulled Artem Lobov (who was part of Conor's crew during the melee) from UFC 223 as a result.

It is being reported that this may have all stemmed from a hotel confrontation between Lobov and Khabib Nurmagomedov on Tuesday. Khabib (along with Chiesa) were in the van that was attacked by McGregor and his crew.
