UFC Golden Boy Connor Mcgregor is in hot water after an incident where he threw a metal dolly through the windows of a bus. The incident took place in a parking garage during UFC media day at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. A bus containing UFC fighters, including lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov was about to leave the arena and take the fighters back to their hotels. Suddenly, Mcgregor appeared with an entourage of 15 or so members and all hell broke lose. Mcgregor attempted to get on the bus, when he realized it wasn’t going to happen, he ended up throwing a metal dolly through one of the windows on the bus. UFC president Dana White appeared in a video moments later to say that NYPD had issued a warrant for Mcgregor, and he was a wanted man. Some wondered if the whole thing was a play for ratings, as a few people said that White’s statement about a warrant being issued for Mcgregor’s arrest were simply untrue.
I guess we’ll just have to wait to see how this whole thing plays out to find out the real truth behind this whole thing. Anyway, here’s the video of Mcgregor busting the windows out on the bus.
