Conor McGregor continues to prove that he's a handful for UFC but potentially perfect for WWE as he made another unscheduled appearance at a UFC event, this time wreaking havoc and causing a scene at the UFC 223 media day in Brooklyn on Thursday.
The wild scene included McGregor and his entourage storming a bus filled with UFC fighters, throwing objects and making security's job a nightmare, leaving lightweight contender Michael Chiesa with a laceration. The object of McGregor's aggression appears to be unknown but it is being reported that UFC 223 headliner Khabib Nurmagomedov and his team were on the bus in question and perhaps a spillover from a Tuesday altercation between Nurmagomedov and McGregor's friend Artem Lobov.

However, the NYPD then said that there is no arrest warrant for McGregor, but they would like to question him about the incident.
Ariel Helwani of MMAfighting.com wrote, "I’m told from people who were in the van that as the van was driving off, they started banging on the windows before security broke it all up." Chairs were thrown and a number of the fighters on the card were visibly disturbed.
This is just another incident in the long line of incidents that have included Conor McGregor and unruly behavior. Likely a way to stay in the limelight, McGregor may have gone too far this time and he could be in real legal trouble with UFC potentially deciding that working with him is just not in their best interest.
Dana White has been quoted as calling this incident "the most disgusting thing that has ever happened in the history of this company." White said McGregor was with a group of about 20 other people who were allowed access to the venue by a credentialed website.
UFC is already stripping McGregor of the lightweight title that he won in November 2016 because he has not fought in the company since.
