Conor McGregor wanted for questioning by NYPD over incident in NY

McGregor responded in the only logical way possible: by crashing the press conference for the fight and throwing a steel divider at a wall.

Chiesa's coach Rick Little told MMA Junkie: "Conor went bananas and put a beating on the van that we were in looking for Khabib". Mike's cut up now. "Do you want to be in business with Conor McGregor right now?"

While McGregor hasn't defended his UFC Lightweight title since winning it in 2016, UFC President Dana White confirmed that he'll be stripped of the title, as the victor of the UFC 223 main-event matchup between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Max Holloway will be declared the new UFC 155-pound Champion.

"The interim these two were supposed to fight for, fight doesn't happen, now one of these guys will be the champion".

The 29-year-old McGregor once held the 145 and 155-pound championships at the same time and boldly stated he wanted an ownership stake in UFC.

It's understood that an altercation earlier this week between Nurmagomedov and McGregor's training partner, Artem Lobov, is what sparked the Irishman's pursuit of vengeance.

"You's'll [sic] strip me of nothing you's do nothing c***s", McGregor wrote on Twitter on Thursday morning.

While most fans will be aware of Diaz's shock submission of McGregor at UFC 196 and the war that followed at UFC 202, some may not know that Diaz and his brother engaged in a brawl with Nurmagomedov at a World Series of Fighting event in Las Vegas. The moniker stuck and McGregor even poked fun at it in a recent commercial for Burger King's newest chicken sandwich.

The New Zealanders picked up their first gold medal on the track with a victory over England in the men's team sprint. Gururaja failed to lift the 138 kg in his first attempt, while his second attempt was cancelled by the judges.

And Diaz has claimed that Nurmagomedov was to blame for the entire situation as it was he who cornered Lobov in the fighter hotel just a few days ago. "Motherf--r", Lobov apparently said. Don't say these things again.

What did you think of Conor McGregor's actions today?

They fled the scene following the fracas, jumping into a auto which then drove off.

The superstar hasn't fought in MMA since UFC 205 in November 2016 when he defeated Eddie Alvarez to capture the lightweight title at New York City's Madison Square Garden. These two are fighting for the belt.

McGregor made his professional boxing debut a year ago, losing to Floyd Mayweather by TKO in a fight that's said to have earned him upwards of $100 million.

Having been stopped by the ring legend in the 10th round last August, McGregor had yet to commit himself to a return to the Octagon.

Holloway, the current featherweight champion, stepped in at a week's notice as he bids to emulate McGregor.

Nurmagomedov was due to face Tony Ferguson this weekend but the American injured his knee last week at a TV studio.
