Early Friday morning Conor McGregor was escorted by police to a black vehicle waiting outside for him, along with other members of his team. McGregor was taken from the 78th Precinct building where he spent the night after his attack on the Barclays Center Thursday that caused the cancellation of three planned fights at UFC 223 Saturday night.
McGregor has been charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief. He turned himself into police and is expected to go before a judge Friday. UFC president Dana White told ESPN's "Get Up" morning program that he isn't backing "Notorious" this time around.
"Normally, yes – I would dive right in and do everything in my power to help one of my guys, but not in this situation. He came into the Barclays Center, attacked our fighters, and attacked my staff with a bunch of guys – no. You don't get my help on this one."
