McGregor, said to be worth $100 million, has been charged with felony criminal mischief and misdemeanor counts of assault, menacing and reckless endangerment. Conor is right now facing multiple charges for the assault and property damage.

Discussing whether McGregor will be able to fight in NY again, Sumbler was much more rational.

As for McGregor's fighting future in the UFC, White laughed off the notion before reiterating that the former lightweight champion will end up in jail.

White, after telling reporters Wednesday that he believed "100 percent" that McGregor would fight in the UFC again this year, was outraged by the Thursday incident. There was even an idea, following the injury to Tony Ferguson, to remove Nurmagomedov from the card and book him vs. McGregor later this year. Earlier this week, Lobov was involved in a minor hotel scuffle with UFC lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov, who is scheduled to fight Saturday against Max Holloway. Flyweight Ray Borg will also miss his bout with Brandon Moreno after he was hit in the eye with shattered glass.

"This is the last stunt on Earth that we'd ever pull", White said.

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.

"This is way bigger than 'are you going to fire the guy?' This is criminal", he said.

White added: "We get through this weekend - we get back to Las Vegas and we just start figuring this thing out".

Also charged with criminal mischief in the attack was Cian Cowley, who was alleged to have thrown a metal chair at one of the buses' windows. McGregor responded on Twitter not long after with a profane tweet that said, in part, you will "strip me of nothing".

But he never defended the title‚ though he took on boxer Floyd Mayweather in August 2017.

Many believe that this incident marks the beginning of the end for McGregor, who is known as one of the world's greatest mixed martial artists and UFC fighters.

McGregor claimed the title in November of 2016 with a knockout victory over Eddie Alvarez.

When McGregor and his followers, which included Lobov, came in contact with the buses, they created terror.

Reuters reports that fighter Michael Chiesa went to the hospital with facial lacerations.

"So much rumor and misinformation about my client, Conor McGregor".
