Conor Mc Gregor has reportedly turned himself into police after crashing the UFC media today on Thursday in New York. More

He is charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief, after the altercation in a parking lot at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn which left two UFC fighters injured. He said Khabib Nurmagomedov, who won his bout over Al Iaquinta that night, is the new lightweight champ.

Not long ago, we learned that Conor McGregor went on a rampage in the Barclays Center.

"We talked yesterday", White said at the post-fight press conference.

Two fighters suffered injuries as a result of the incident. However, that wasn't the case.

McGregor's boorish behavior got him tossed in jail, facing felony charges in a NY courtroom and, on a less serious note, led to UFC scrapping three fights on the UFC 223 card.

"I can't speculate. It's like asking me if Charles Manson got released from jail, what would you do?"

McGregor once held the 145 and 155-pound championships at the same time and boldly stated he wanted an ownership stake in UFC.

After being restrained, attention turned towards the fighters on the buses. He has been ordered to stay away from any victims in the attack, including fellow UFC fighters Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg. "You don't get my help on this one".

This by far was the oddest, and the most freaky event to happen.

So a pretty quiet week with UFC 223 going down this Saturday...

The fracas appeared to be related to the Ultimate Fighting Championship's decision to strip McGregor of his title. Holloway has not lost a fight in five years (his last loss coincidentally came against McGregor in 2013, though Holloway is a much improved fighter since that collision), and he certainly has as good of a chance as anyone at grounding The Eagle, Nurmagomedov, this weekend. When Nurmagomedov replied back to the insults, Lobov couldn't handle it, which led McGregor to come in and cause a scene.

Earlier this week reports indicate McGregor was "on the fence" over travelling to NY, however the decision to defend his mate Artem Lobov, who was also involved in the Barclays Centre altercation, set the retaliation wheels in motion. "Numerous fighters and cornermen have nothing to do with this situation".

In a set of interviews that followed, White was speechless yet frustrated at the same time.

McGregor revels in being the bad boy of UFC, but is this behaviour a step too far, even for him?

On Friday, McGregor was pictured being led out of a NY police station in handcuffs as he faced charges over a brawl.

McGregor's next court appearance was scheduled for June 14, TMZ reported.
