Saturday, April 7, 2018, UFC released video footage of Conor McGregor’s Brooklyn meltdown; where he smashed bus windows and challenged a busload of MMA combatants to fight him on the spot. The action was shot from inside the bus which was carrying fighters at the Barclays Center. It showed McGregor wildly hurling a hand truck that smashed through the vehicle’s windows and cut the face of a UFC combatant, Mike Cheese.

A metal barricade, garbage can and a chair were among the items McGregor attempted to fling at the bus load of fighters in the sudden outburst, which sparked confusion within those inside the bus. McGregor’s flip out came outside a UFC news conference Thursday, April 12, to hype its card for tomorrow’s Barclays Center bouts. Talking to Priscilla Guerrero, she said, “It’s scary to think that there are people in the world that are as strong as him and can cause a lot of damage.”

The ire-filled irishman is enraged that UFC will strip him of his light weight title, due to inactivity, and award it to the winner of Saturday’s fight between undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov and Long Island real estate agent Al laquinta. McGregor and approximately 10 others were caught on video scampering out of a Barclays loading dock after the attack, hooting and hollering. As the arguing settled, Nurmagomedov left the bus and said McGregor should meet him “Mano a mano.”

The video also captured UFC Vice President, Reed Harris, calling from the back of the bus telling his boss, Dana White, what had just enfold. McGregor, 29, faces charges including; criminal mischief, assault, and reckless endangerment. “He could have created a lot of damage to the fighters inside the bus if they weren’t fighters and just civilians” Priscilla added.
