One of the biggest names in the world of ultimate fighting is Conor McGregor. The UFC title champ stormed the Barclays Center in New York with an entourage of angry friends on Thursday.
Conor and his group attacked a bus full of other fighters by throwing chairs and other items at the bus and through the windows. Some of those inside the bus, including the wives of the fighters inside, were seriously injured. Some people have reportedly been transported to the hospital after sustaining major cuts from the shattered windows.
"According to multiple witnesses, McGregor, 29, ran into the arena's loading dock and began hurling objects at a bus, which was taking a group of UFC fighters to a nearby hotel," reported ESPN.
UFC President Dana White is absolutely disgusted by the act.
"They stormed the building, got down to the loading docks where the fighters were getting on buses and started to attack the buses with trash cans, dollies," White said. "... This is the most disgusting thing that has ever happened in the history of this company."
Now, things are looking horrible for the fighter who, at one time, had the world at his fingertips. He is facing multiple charges, including felonies. If convicted, he could possibly face jail time. However, the charges could also spell trouble for McGregor's ability to fight within the United States.
“It will be no more than a slap on the wrist - a fine, or maybe a six-month suspension from the sport. I’d be surprised if he’s not looking at five or six different lawsuits. I think we’re probably looking at a couple of hundred thousand dollars in terms of fines and court cases, but all it has done is build his return to the octagon even more," according to BBC.
