FRIDAY APRIL 6: There’s no sign yet of UFC megastar Connor McGregor after he attacked a bus carrying rival fighters in New York.
The Irishman and his posse stormed the Barclay Centre arena around 1.30pm local time. Journalists from McGregor’s own media publication, TheMacLife.com, had let them in to the arena after a media event.
The fighter and his team threw bins, trolleys and whatever they could get their hands on, at a bus carrying half the roster of Sunday’s UFC 223. Video shows McGregor throwing a trolley at the bus’s windows, which shattered – leaving fighter Michael Chiesa with multiple cuts to his face.
The incident was recorded by many people both inside and outside the bus, as well as the centre’s security cameras.
