UFC star Conor McGregor attacks press conference after Dana White strips him of lightweight belt

Conor McGregor leaves the octagon with his title belts after knocking out Eddie Alvarez during a lightweight mixed martial arts bout at UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden in New York in 2016.CONOR McGregor responded to UFC President Dana White’s decision to strip him of his lightweight belt in typically understated fashion: by tweeting an unprintable insult, crashing a pre-fight press event, chucking a barricade and prompting a scene of general mayhem that left one fighter injured and organizers stunned.

White told multiple outlets after the episode Thursday afternoon that a warrant is out for McGregor’s arrest, but both ABC News and SB Nation’s Marc Raimondi reported that there was no warrant, citing the New York Police Department.

White also said that Michael Chiesa, who was scheduled to fight in Saturday’s card, had been cut in the face and was in the hospital, and that Artem Lobov, a McGregor ally who was apparently part of the incident, would be pulled from the card. One of Chiesa’s coaches told ESPN’s Brett Okamoto that it was “50/50” whether Chiesa would be able to fight on Saturday.
