Dana White issues statement on Conor McGregor’s rampage in Brooklyn

Dana White

On Thursday afternoon, Conor McGregor and his entourage showed up at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, NY—the host venue for Saturday’s UFC 223 card—and all hell broke loose. Even by McGregor standards, it was a terrible scene, as the Irishman and his cohorts went berserk, throwing garbage cans, chairs and more at the UFC 223 fighter bus, which was packed to the edges with the card’s fighter. According to multiple reports, McGregor’s attack left several passengers covered in glass, and UFC 223 fighter Michael Chiesa with a laceration on his head. Now, UFC boss Dana White has spoken up on the madness. As you can expect, he is furious.

“What happened today was criminal, disgusting, and it makes me sick,” the UFC President told MMAJunkie’s Mike Bohn.

Expect a longer statement from the UFC President, and updates on what this all means for McGregor and the larger UFC 223 fight card, in the coming hours.
