  • Conor Mc Gregor is being questioned about allegations of possible assault and criminal mischief

He posted $50,000 bail and was released from custody following a court appearance Friday.

A New York Police Department spokesman said: 'He (McGregor) has been charged with three counts of assault and one of criminal mischief'.

The Irishman remained expressionless throughout his short arraignment at the downtown Brooklyn Central Booking facility. He was also granted the freedom to return to his native country of Ireland, as the judge did not revoke his passport.

UFC star Conor McGregor stormed a media day on Thursday ahead of UFC 223, damaging a bus and injuring two fighters in the process.

Mcgregor who has not fought in the octagon since November 2016, was involved in some pretty unsavoury scenes before a UFC press event on Thursday.

It was unclear whether the incident was prompted by White stripping McGregor of his belt, or by previous bad feelings between McGregor's camp and Khabib Nurmagomedov, scheduled to fight Max Holloway for McGregor's vacated belt in the main event. "We talked yesterday before he turned himself in".

"He came into the Barclays Center, attacked our fighters and attacked my staff with a bunch of guys". Fueled by revenge and running with a pack of his "hoodlums", McGregor's antics landed him in jail - and injured two fighters on Saturday's UFC 223 card. "Most of the things I would rather not say and probably can't say on TV", White said. "This is bigger than Conor McGregor getting fired". McGregor's teammate, 25-year-old Cian Cowley, is charged with assault and criminal mischief. Both UFC fighters are due back in court in Brooklyn on June 14th.

"Artem Lobov, who is on the undercard, is a very, very close friend of Conor McGregor", White said.

Chiesa and fellow fighter Ray Borg, who suffered an eye injury in the incident, have been withdrawn from the UFC 223 card while White has dropped Lobov for his role in the fracas. "There's so many more moving pieces to this thing".

One person on the bus told MMAjunkie that McGregor was searching for headliner Khabib Nurmagomedov and "went bananas".

The incident has led to calls for McGregor to be banned from the sport, and while White would not confirm such an action, he did not rule it out either. He has reportedly earned about $35 million from cumulative fight earnings and endorsements before his hyped bout with boxer Floyd Mayweather.

"It was scary, scary for everybody", witness and UFC fighter Felice Herring said.
