A warrant has been issued for the arrest of UFC superstar Conor McGregor by the New York Police Department after an incident at a media event at Barclays Center on Thursday, according to UFC president Dana White.
A spokesperson for the NYPD wouldn't confirm or deny the claim.
McGregor and his entourage pulled up to the arena in a black SUV and were allowed in the arena by a reporter representing McGregor's website, “The Mac Life.”
The group was allegedly in search of Khabib Nurmagomedov, who is fighting Max Holloway in the main event of UFC 223 on Saturday.
Nurmagomedov had confronted McGregor's friend Artem Lobov at the Marriott hotel on Monday in an incident captured on video.
McGregor's group can be seen on videos posted on social media throwing chairs and security barricades in the bowels of the arena.
