Conor McGregor Responds to UFC Stripping Him of Lightweight Title

06 April 2018

There is no warrant out for Conor McGregor's arrest at this time, he said. Lobov, one of McGregor's teammates, was reportedly involved in a scuffle with Nurmagomedov at a hotel on Tuesday night, which may have fuelled today's attack.

Footage of the incident was uploaded to Instagram by MMA fighter Felice Herrig with the caption "Conor McGregor causing trouble".

According to the site, the altercation was due to Nurmagomedov trash-talking Conor McGregor as the two fighters continue their feud.

McGregor (21-3) hasn't fought in UFC since 2016. A week filled with outrageous incidents was too much for the UFC to stand behind.

UFC president Dana White has spoken out after Conor McGregor and "30 thugs" stormed the media day event, attacked a bus and injured several people at UFC223.

There will be a new UFC lightweight champion following Saturday's UFC 223 bout between Max Holloway (19-3) and Khabib Nurmagomedov (25-0).

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.

Dakeb defended his position by referencing the murder of Stompie Seipei and other alleged blots on Madikizela-Mandela's record. This dented her career, but she remained respected in the ANC, and was an MP until her death.

He added: "There is a warrant out for Conor McGregor's arrest, they're looking for him right now".

Citing Dana White, TMZ said law enforcement officials said McGregor's plane can not leave the state and he has been instructed to turn himself in.

White said that McGregor was let in by "The Mac Life" media members.

He can't leave the State of NY with this warrant.

". This is the most disgusting thing that has ever happened in the history of this company".

"I don't know if he's on drugs or what his deal is, but to come and do this and act like this?" McGregor was supposed to have headlined that card, in a rematch with Nate Diaz, but White pulled the fight after the Irishman refused to break training for some promotional appearances. Do you want to chase this guy for interviews and buy his fights? His only fight in 2017 was a boxing match against undefeated champion Floyd Mayweather, who won the fight by knockout.

In an interview with ESPN's Brett Okamoto, White said strawweight champion Rose Namajunas was almost hit during the incident before deciding to walk back to the fighter hotel.
