He won 50-43 on two scorecards and 50-44 on the third.

Rose Namajunas also was a passenger on the bus attacked by McGregor and was left so shaken she flirted with the idea of dropping out of her title fight. UFC star Conor McGregor was arraigned on charges of felony criminal mischief charges and misdemeanor assault, menacing and reckless endangerment charges following a backstage melee he sparked at a UFC event in New York City. "He justified it. It was justified to him".

He dressed in fur coats and swung chairs at news conferences, reaped the riches of his dalliance with boxing, and demanded his boss cut him an ownership stake in the MMA promotion that made him one of the sport's most notorious names. Ray Borg, a flyweight who was scheduled to battle Brandon Moreno, also was deemed unfit to fight after suffering corneal abrasions.

"Listen, you don't like Khabib and you don't like what happened and whatever, then fight Khabib". The status of the title bout remains unclear.

UFC President Dana White said Friday morning that he had been in contact with McGregor, and that the fighter had attempted to justify his actions. Fueled by revenge and running with a pack of his "hoodlums", McGregor's antics landed him in jail - and injured two fighters on Saturday's UFC 223 card.

White said earlier this week in New York that McGregor would fight again for UFC this year.

"Conor and I talked through text yesterday, obviously the worst conversation we have ever had, " White said during a Friday morning appearance on Fox Sports 1's "First Things First", adding that the conversation took place before McGregor turned himself in.

The 29-year-old Nurmagomedov once wrestled a bear as a child and he had no trouble busting open a clearly overmatched Iaquinta.

"You can imagine he's going to be sued beyond belief", White said. The confrontation came when the McGregor entourage attacked a bus filled with fighters and staffers, including Nurmagomedov, as the bus began to leave Barclays Center following Thursday's media event. She congratulated both Namajunas and Jedrzejczyk and said UFC was lucky to have them both. They hit Mike Chiesa. He instead ended his long ride toward a UFC title with a championship belt to bring back to Russia. You could do whatever you wanted to Khabib within the limits of the rules of fighting.

In an appearance later Friday on ESPN's "Get Up!"

"This is the last stunt on Earth we would ever pull".

White added that McGregor won't be getting any sort of bailout from UFC.

"Right now? No. I mean, do you want to be in business with Conor McGregor right now".

"Conor went bananas and put a beating on the van that we were in", Chiesa's coach Rick Little told MMA Junkie. He's got marks on him, for sure. I don't think too serious.

He spoke only to acknowledge that he understood the conditions of his release, saying, "Yes, your honor". A rematch against Mayweather inside the cage? This is big history gangster place. Brooklyn. You want to talk to me? Send me location. I am going to come.

It's one usually plastered on a UFC poster.

Nurmagomedov lent his papakha to Joe Rogan and called out Georges St-Pierre for a fight later this year at Madison Square Garden. White said in a video posted by Okamoto. "I don't know if he's on drugs or what his deal is, but to come and do this and act like this?" "One of these guys will be the champion". He last fought in a UFC bout in November 2016, when he defeated Eddie Alvarez to win the lightweight belt.

"Tony Ferguson isn't being stripped". He is due back in court June 14.
