A handcuffed Conor McGregor expresses no remorse for UFC rampage

A NY judge listed McGregor's charges as three misdemeanor counts of assault and one count of felony criminal mischief.

He faces three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief following the fracas at Brooklyn's Barclay Center on Thursday evening.

Dana White says Conor McGregor shouldn't run to him for help after the MMA icon was slapped with assault and criminal mischief charges in Brooklyn early Friday.

Video footage appeared to show the promotion's most bankable star throwing a hand truck at a bus full of fighters on Thursday after a news conference for UFC 223 at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. Multiple videos of this attack were taken and McGregor can be seen breaking a window of one of the buses with a dolly.

Along with that, UFC president Dana White addresses the fighters injured and shaken by the incident, the UFC celebrates its 25th anniversary by visiting the New York Stock Exchange and Al Iaquinta steps in to meet Khabib Nurmagomedov in the main event for the lightweight title.

UFC's president, Dana White, echoed that reporting on Fox Sports 1's "First Things First," saying McGregor flew several people to NY from Ireland when he heard of the incident at the hotel. But not in this situation.

"I can't speculate. It's like asking me if Charles Manson got released from jail, what would you do?"

Bail was reportedly set at US$50,000 and arrangements were being worked out for him to fly home to Ireland without U.S. authorities seizing his passport, reports said.

He's also instructed his secretary of agriculture "to implement a plan to protect our farmers and agricultural interests". The 100 billion dollars represent about 20 percent of US imports from China past year , some analysts have pointed out.

Barring any difficulty at Friday's weigh-in, the belt will go to the victor of Saturday night's UFC 223 main event pitting Russia's Nurmagomedov (25-0) against featherweight champion Max Holloway (19-3).

Prosecutors said in court that McGregor punched a security guard at Barclays Center during the melee.

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

It is clear that it isn't just Conor McGregor that is now under the spotlight following the events of Thursday night. "He was apologetic about the people he wasn't trying to hurt", White said.

Two UFC fighters - Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg, were injured during the attack and had to be pulled from their respective fights.

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

McGregor hasn't fought for UFC since November 2016 when he defeated Eddie Alvarez to win the 155-pound championship. "And we'll turn them around and get them fights again real quick".

He previously told Reuters he made an eye-watering $US140 million ($A196 million) from last August's boxing match with Floyd Mayweather.
