"Approximately 20 guys were apparently let in through the doors by the Mac Life guys, who were credentialled here", UFC president Dana White said, referencing McGregor's brand and its employees who allegedly helped the Dublin native and his crew.

UFC superstar Conor McGregor is in custody in NY following a van-smashing rampage at a press event. The windshield of one bus was cracked, and two fighters sustained injuries that caused them to be dropped from the Saturday fight card. "We're dealing with this fight", White said.

There was also an idea of booking McGregor against Rafael dos Anjos in an interim welterweight title fight. Listen, insane things happen in sports.

A UFC executive later tweeted, "It was the scariest thing I've ever been through". He's awesome. Conor McGregor is a f***ing unicorn. We talked before he turned himself in.

McGregor has since been released from custody following his arraignment on three charges of misdemeanor assault and a count of felony criminal mischief.

Another fight was canceled after different fighter inside the suffered an eye injury as a result of the glass particles.

Prosecutors said in court that McGregor punched a security guard at Barclays Center during the melee. Mike's cut up now.

He was taunting those inside to get out and face him. I felt humiliated. "I didn't think about calling the police". Everything happened so fast. He was just getting started.

In total, six fighters were taken off the card due to circumstances out of their control.

Raptors Weren't Happy with Lowry Attending NCAA Final
The last time these teams met, March 21st 2018, Cleveland Cavaliers beat 132-129 (James: 35 points, 17 assists, 0 turnovers). Kevin Love (Day To Day - Illness): Love is listed as questionable for Tuesday's (Apr. 3) game against the Toronto Raptors .

Max Holloway was ruled out of his scheduled showdown with Khabib Nurmagomedov by the New York State Athletic Commission on Friday morning. The matter is in the hands of law enforcement and I can not really say more.

Rafael dos Anjos and Colby Covington will meet for the interim welterweight title on June 9 at UFC 225 in Chicago. That's all I have to say for now.

Barring any difficulty at Friday's weigh-in, the belt will go to the victor of Saturday night's UFC 223 main event pitting Russia's Nurmagomedov (25-0) against featherweight champion Max Holloway (19-3).

"And those who think it was a weight thing... lol, ask my guy who works for the Pi, I was 129 when I was taken to the hospital, three pounds away from my weight, almost 24 hours from weigh-ins". He said "Don't know who to credit, so hit me up if you're the OP". "Showing up like you want to fight or something like this", he said. He was stripped of the featherweight belt two weeks later.

"UFC 223 will proceed as scheduled with 10 bouts", the UFC said.

The Irishman reportedly pocketed around US$100 million (RM387,000) for the superfight he lost in August in Las Vegas against ex-welterweight champion boxer Floyd Mayweather.
