Earlier this week, Dana White finally confirmed that Conor McGregor would be stripped of his UFC lightweight title, but unbeknown to MMA fans around the world, it would be the start of a insane three days leading up to UFC 223.

Ahead of the court appearance, McGregor and Cowley were seen separately being escorted out of the NYPD's 78th precinct building and into cars, with their hands apparently restrained behind their backs. "Obviously, the big question everybody's been asking me is, 'Are you firing Conor McGregor?'" White told the broadcaster.

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

During a press conference Friday, White said fighters forced off the card due to the incident, in which McGregor and a group of men were caught on video attacking and damaging a bus carrying several fighters on Saturday's card, would still receive their show money.

"Our team doesn't throw chairs at buses full of fighters and women", said his manager, Ali Abdelaziz.

White said he's been in touch via text message with McGregor, who told him he's sorry innocent people got hurt but isn't apologetic about addressing the beef.

A second mixed martial arts fighter, Cian Cowley, faces three criminal mischief, one assault and one reckless endangerment charge, police said.

Footage purportedly showing McGregor throwing objects at the vehicle appeared on social media and the NYPD later confirmed he turned himself in for questioning.

His also was was ordered to stay away from five people involved in the incident.

McGregor has not fought in UFC since beating Eddie Alvarez in November 2016 and was stripped of his lightweight title before this incident.

"So that's also something they're going to take into consideration because there is some level of disrespect for him doing what he did and (it was) unsafe on top of everything", she said. Mike told me that when the glass broke, it turned into nearly dust.

In a tweet Saturday, McGregor's agent Audie Attar lamented "rumor and misinformation" surrounding McGregor but did not elaborate. The UFC immediately canceled the early preliminary fight of McGregor's Russian stablemate Artem Lobov, who was seen with McGregor during the fray. Do you want to chase this guy for interviews and buy his fights? "He's working on boxing Floyd Mayweather and then he's talking about fighting Khabib in Russian Federation right after".

Recent statements by UFC President, Dana White, confirms Conor McGregor and the UFC were working on a new contract. He sounded hopeful and said that Conor is eager to fight again as soon as possible.
