"I don't know if he's on drugs or what his deal is but to come and do this, you're talking about a guy who has a baby!"

Video of the incident clearly showed McGregor hurling a dolly through a side window of the bus as it moved slowly in a vehicle park at the Barclays Center in NY.

The "Notorious" Conor McGregor is really living up to his fight name after he stormed the UFC 223 press conference and then attacked a bus filled with fighters (looking for Khabib Nurmagomedov) in retaliation for an altercation involving his teammate Artem Lobov - and UFC President Dana White is just as confused as we are. No warrant has been issued, however, according to the New York Police Department, which has confirmed it is investigating an "incident" at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. They got on an elevator to the loading docks where a shuttle bus was about to drive the fighters back to their hotel.

A fighter in the lightweight division, Michael Chiesa, apparently received a laceration to his forehead as a result of the chaos and can be heard on the video saying: "Am I cut bad?"

Chiesa's coach, John Wood, told ESPN that Chiesa was hospitalized and treated for "lots of small cuts".

Chiesa, 30, was released from hospital and is still set to fight on Saturday against Anthony Pettis.

Clearly unhappy about claims that he is set to be stripped and that the victor of UFC 223's main event between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Max Holloway will be the new UFC lightweight champion, "The Notorious" set about the bus which was reportedly carrying Nurmagomedov.

Many considered this nothing but a minor breakdown by McGregor - that is until McGregor and his team charged a bus full of UFC staff and athletes - injuring them in the process.

McGregor profanely responded on Twitter and wrote, "You'll strip me of nothing". It's disgusting and I don't think anybody is going to be a fan after this. Tony is still the No. 1 ranked guy in the world either way, no matter who wins. McGregor has not fought for UFC since he won the 155-pound title at UFC 205 in November 2016.

McGregor last fought at all in a boxing match he lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr. on August 26, 2017.

Video footage has emerged on social media of what appears to be McGregor and his entourage storming into the Barclays Centre.
