Conor McGregor's chaotic arrival after UFC 223 media day causes damage, injury to Michael Chiesa

Conor McGregor arrived for UFC 223 fight week today, and things got out of hand quickly.

The UFC lightweight champion, for now at least, made a surprise appearance following UFC 223 media day at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) was seen briefly arriving at the venue before rushing into an elevator with his team (video above).

That led to some disturbing footage caught on video in which McGregor and members of his team can be seen vandalizing a bus carrying fighters who were set to be transported to the host hotel.

Michael Chiesa was injured with a laceration to his forehead as a result of the chaos and can be heard on video moments afterward: “Am I cut bad? I don’t want to touch my face.”

Chiesa’s coach, Rick Little, told MMAjunkie that Chiesa was “cut up” from shattered glass. Little, who was on the bus, also described what happened.

“Conor went bananas and put a beating on the van that we were in looking for Khabib,” Little said. “A million security guards had to restrain him. Mike’s cut up now. He’s got marks on him, for sure. I don’t think too serious. Everything happened so fast, it was just like we got jumped.”

McGregor apparently fled the scene with his crew afterward.

MMAFighting.com reporter Ariel Helwani reported that UFC President Dana White was at the scene talking to police.

McGregor’s arrival for UFC 223 likely is based around his desire to support SBG Ireland teammate Artem Lobov (13-14-1 MMA, 2-4 UFC), who fights Alex Caceres (13-11 MMA, 8-9 UFC) on the card. He also provides some additional intrigue to the main event title fight, where Khabib Nurmagomedov (25-0 MMA, 9-0 UFC) and Max Holloway (19-3 MMA, 15-3 UFC) are scheduled to fight for the 155-pound title.

UFC 223 will take place at Barclays Center. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

I hope Chiesa is not cut too bad. That was a fucking **** move by McGregor. At least give him a suspension for that shit. Any other fighter would get cut for doing that shit..

You boys are fast!

Was it the belt stripping, or Artem vs. Khabib in the hotel that hurt his feelings?

Say buh-bye Conor. Your MMA and fighting days are over. Possible jail time?

That was more than a **** move...dude could go to jail for that.

Guess Conor went blank when Artem got confronted by Khabib. Who knows what goes on with them behind the scenes, might be a more serious thing between the 2 groups.

Just spoke to a spokesman for the NYPD. There is no warrant out for Conor McGregor’s arrest at this time, he said. They are, though, looking for him and want to speak with him, the spokesman said. No one has filed charges against McGregor at this moment.

I don't know what to believe. It's all over Yahoo news and other sources are stating they are arresting him.

If not now, it will happen within the day I'd imagine. The dude has lost his mind.

What’s so stupid about this is that he could’ve achieved the same effect by just confronting Khabib outside the bus without throwing chairs.
