McGregor surrendered himself to police this evening.

A separate report from NBC in New York stated that McGregor is expected to be charged with assault after he barged into the Barclays Center in an attempt to go after UFC lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov. Earlier this week, Nurmagomedov was involved in a separate incident involving McGregor’s teammate Artem Lobov that reportedly led to the Irishman’s outburst on Thursday.

The altercation unfolded after McGregor showed up unannounced to a media event that was being held at the arena ahead of UFC 223 this weekend.

McGregor and his entourage crashed the event and ended up at the loading docks where a pair of buses were filled with UFC athletes about to be transported back to their hotel.

McGregor, along with several members of his crew, began throwing objects at the bus including a moving dolly and a chair. One of the windows in the bus was shattered and at least two fighters — Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg — sustained injuries during the melee that knocked them out of their fights on Saturday night.

A third person identified as an employee of the UFC also sustained injuries during the melee that forced them to go to the hospital as a result of the ruckus caused by McGregor and his crew.

McGregor was already banned from attending UFC 223 but now he may be facing criminal charges as a result of his actions in Brooklyn on Thursday.
