It looks like Conor McGregor can’t leave New York because a warrant has just been issued for his arrest.
According to Dana White, the warrant comes after McGregor and his entourage attacked a bus with UFC fighters at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn earlier. As we reported, at least one fighter came out bloodied following the attack.
According to law enforcement sources, the NYPD is looking for McGregor and that detectives are currently interviewing people who were on the scene during the incident.
According to Dana, law enforcement has told Conor his plane cannot take off from New York or leave the state. McGregor has been instructed to turn himself into authorities as soon as possible and multiple people involved in the incident have vocalized that they plan on suing the Irishman.
Dana adds that he hasn’t spoken with Conor, but plans to do so as soon as possible. White says his focus right now is making sure UFC 223 continues as planned.
McGregor’s friend Artem Lobov, who was allegedly involved in the attack, has been pulled from the event. Dana tells us, “He’s obviously not fighting this weekend.”
