Conor McGregor storms UFC 223 media day

Conor McGregor apparently isn’t too pleased that UFC is stripping him of his lightweight title.

McGregor, who last fought at a UFC event when he won that title in November 2016, stormed the media day for UFC 223 on Thursday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

According to various media reports and video posted to social media, McGregor grew violent as a van containing other fighters left the arena’s loading dock.

He can be seen in one video [Warning: Explicit language] first attempting to pick up a trash can and then picking up a traffic barrier and throwing it toward a van. Another video [Warning: More explicit language] shows the windshield of the vehicle cracking when an object hits it.

Michael Chiesa, who is scheduled to fight Anthony Pettis at Saturday’s event, reportedly suffered a cut on his forehead when hit by shattered glass and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

UFC president Dana White later told ESPN’s Brett Okamoto that there is a warrant out for McGregor’s arrest following the incident.

Okamoto later tweeted that, despite White’s claim, the New York Police Department told ABC News that it is investigating the incident and has not issued a warrant.

Okamoto also tweeted that Artem Lobov, who was also set to fight Saturday, has been removed from the card after apparently being part of McGregor’s entourage during the incident.

McGregor’s last fight came in an Aug. 26, 2017, boxing match that he lost to Floyd Mayweather in the 10th round by TKO.

The main event at Saturday’s UFC 223 features a fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Max Holloway for McGregor’s vacated lightweight title.
