Footage emerged earlier this week, showing McGregor and his entourage attacking a bus containing fighters, including lightweight rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.

On Wednesday, White said the UFC would take back McGregor's lightweight title, which would be awarded to the victor of Saturday's UFC 223 fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Max Holloway in NY.

The "UFC 223 Embedded" video, released Friday, showed McGregor outside the bus at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, pounding on a window and apparently challenging some of the fighters inside.

#Conor Mcgregor hasn't fought in the UFC since his last title match in November 2016 against Edie Alvarez where he knocked him out in the second round.

But some have other theories. "I think that there's a mutual respect between us and obviously this week, I had so many things thrown at me". Many fans are hoping to actually focus on who is in the octagon instead of who is missing.

"We talked yesterday", White said at the post-fight press conference. Just days after spending part of Thursday in jail following an incident at the UFC 223 media day, the Irish striker was stripped of his UFC lightweight title.

Later that day, McGregor appeared in court in NY where he was told he would be allowed to fly back to his home in Ireland ahead of his next appearance on June 14.

Conor McGregor and his hotheaded posse were banned in Brooklyn and - as UFC would hope - presumably not lurking in the bowls of Barclays Center looking for a brawl.

During a hiatus from UFC, McGregor took up boxing and lost to Floyd Mayweather in a money-spinning bout last August.

The police issued a warrant for his arrest but he later turned himself in and paid a bail worth $50,000. Nurmagomedov was filmed in a confrontation at a hotel with Lobov, the McGregor friend, this week. It appears McGregor's actions have finally caught up to him and UFC is no longer tolerating his behaviour. "This is not the Conor McGregor that I know".

"It's perhaps not I don't feel he understood everything occurred". But on Thursday, McGregor did something very dumb: He committed an actual crime in the service of hyping up a fight, putting his fighting career in jeopardy. It may not sound like a big deal, but it was a clear violation of the rules, and it only got worse when the referee, Marc Goddard, stepped in to separate the bro-hug bonding and get Ward back to his corner.
