Conor McGregor involved in chaotic backstage melee ahead of UFC 223

Brock Lesnar and Conor McGregor will fight again in UFC, Dana White says

UFC President Dana White told ESPN the NYPD has issued an arrest warrant for the Irishman, but a representative from the police department told MMAFighting.com: "There is no outstanding warrant for McGregor's arrest, although authorities are now looking to speak to the UFC lightweight champion".

UFC president Dana White expressed his disgust at the dramatic developments and claimed there was a warrant out for McGregor's arrest in an interview with ESPN.

MMA fighters were at the Barclays Center for a media session ahead of Saturday's UFC 223.

McGregor was shown tossing trash cans and causing trouble during his unannounced appearance in NY.

McGregor has not fought for UFC since he won the 155-pound title in November 2016 and last fought at all in a boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr in August past year, which ended in defeat.

He originally posted on Twitter: "You's'll strip me of nothing you's do nothing c****" with the Barclays Center trouble following later.

But he pulled out through injury, with Max Holloway stepping in instead, and the interim belt will cease to exist and instead the victor will be the new 155-pound champion.

With Monday's death, this would raise to 18 the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli troops on Friday. There have not been any other reported protests in Tel Aviv in response to the border events.

"No interim champ. When this fight is over, champion", White said.

"The Eagle" has plenty of support in NY and UFC President Dana White suggested that the decision was made to move Lobov to a different hotel for his own safety. Conor is losing the the belt.

"When this fight is over, champion", White said at a news conference, gesturing to Nurmagomedov and Holloway. He made the biggest payday of his career in a boxing match with Floyd Mayweather in August and has not fought since.

"About Conor? I don't remember when he fight last time", Nurmagomedov said.

"Conor McGregor is coming back this year 100 percent", he said.

"I mean even the police officer who came to me about this was like "God I was of his too". White said if McGregor wanted to fight Nurmagomedov, he should do it through UFC rather than attacking him.

"However this thing plays out on Saturday, we'll go from there". But if you ask the Dagestan fighter, he would have already proven who the best in the world is if he wins at UFC 223.
