Lots of pro fighters have ‘anger issues’. But this is pushing it a little far.
Dramatic video emerged of Connor McGregor taking out his rage on a rival’s bus, chucking a metal handcart through a window, before being hauled off by police to face charges.
This happened only a little while before two other fighters were set to contend for his heavyweight title.
MMA fighter Conor McGregor has been charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief following a rampage at a UFC press event in Brooklyn on Thursday, the New York Police Department has said.
The 29-year-old turned himself in to police on Thursday evening.
‘He’s been charged with assault, three counts of assault, and one count of criminal mischief,’ said Thomas Antonetti of the NYPD. ‘He’s still in custody, still at the police precinct until he’s removed to court this morning.’
Here is what happened, according to UFC President Dana White:
Police and EMS were called to the scene according to White who described the event as ‘the most disgusting thing that ever happened in the history’ of the UFC.
McGregor was scheduled to lose his UFC lightweight belt on Saturday to the winner of the title bout between Max Holloway and Nurmagomedov – a contest that is now up in the air because Holloway was not medically cleared to fight Saturday.I am laughing inside. You [McGregor] broke window? Why? Come inside. If you real gangster why don’t you come inside? This is big history gangster place. Brooklyn. You want to talk to me? Send me location. I am going to come. No problem.Khabib Nurmagomedov
White previously ruled that McGregor, the first UFC fighter to hold two world titles simultaneously, would have to forfeit the lightweight belt to whomever won that fight because the Irishman has not participated in a UFC event since 2016 – nearly a year before his doomed boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in August of 2017.
McGregor gave a clumsy reaction to White’s decision on Twitter: ‘You’s’ll strip me of nothing you’s do nothing c****.’

Watch McGregor leave in handcuffs:
Watch Dana White say that McGregor is ‘going to jail’:
If he gets a criminal record out of this, it’ll hurt him.
Because he’s not an American, and he could be barred from entering the country. And that’s kind of a big deal.
Especially for an MMA fighter.
