Maybe instead of Ronda Rousey making the switch from the UFC to the WWE, it should have been Conor McGregor.
Because that guy sure does put on a show for the cameras.
Only problem with what he did yesterday—storming the Barclays Center in Brooklyn after a UFC 223 media event and trashing a bus—was very real.
In fact, it was too real which is why one of the UFC fighters on the vandalized bus—lightweight contender Michael Chiesa—was left bloodied after objects were thrown through the windows of the bus and required medical attention.
After the incident, UFC Prez Dana White said a warrant had been issued for McGregor’s arrest and hinted that the Irishman could be done with the UFC.
It’s unclear exactly what preceded the chaos, but it is believed White was at the event to support SBG Ireland teammate Artem Lobov. Lobov got into a heated confrontation with Khabib Nurmagomedov — who is scheduled to have a title fight against Max Holloway at UFC 223 — at the fighters’ hotel earlier in the week. Chiesa’s coach, Rick Little, told MMAJunkie.com that McGregor and his crew were looking for Khabib.
“Conor went bananas and put a beating on the van that we were in looking for Khabib,” Little said. “A million security guards had to restrain him.”
White added Lobov has been pulled from his scheduled fight against Alex Caceres at UFC 223.
Wow—McGregor may not be getting a belt from the UFC anytime in the near future.
But he looks like he may very well be getting some bracelets
