One of his accomplices, Cian Cowley, had his bail set at £17,500 ($25,000).

McGregor will face a number of legal, and potentially bout licencing, issues in the United States over the coming months - he is due back in court on June 14 - but it may not prevent him from fighting in Russian Federation.

White said the 29-year-old McGregor said he was sorry about the fighters who were injured, but, "this had to be done".

Video obtained by TMZ shows McGregor picking up a dolly and smashing it into the side of the bus.

Conor McGregor's media day antics put several fighters' livelihoods in danger this week, but according to UFC president Dana White, those affected won't miss their UFC 223 payday - mostly.

"Normally, yes - I would dive right in and do everything in my power to help one of my guys", White said on the ESPN show.

"As you can imagine, he's going to be sued beyond belief", Mr White said.

Nurmagomedov improved to 26-0 (10-0 in UFC) in a path to the lightweight championship much more laborious than his five rounds in the ring at Barclays Center .

He punched a number of the bus's windows, yelling "Get out!" and at one point he commanded his group to "Smash the windows!"

During his speech , he asserted that the BJP government would not scrap the reservation policy, nor allow anyone to do so. But then, Amit Shah is known to start preparing for elections, whether at the Centre or states, much ahead of his rivals.

McGregor will not have his passport revoked as part of his bail package, so he'll be free to return to Ireland for now. The dolly struck one of the fighters and also shattered a window, spraying others with glass.

Conor's manager Audie Attar released a statement on Saturday defending him and said that they are waiting for the verdict from the law and the UFC, they are the ones who will decide on a punishment.

Due to the disturbance, three scheduled fights had to be cancelled in the Barclays Centre. He was taken into custody in Brooklyn after turning himself in to the police.

Lobov was yanked from the card and the fight status of Michael Chiesa was unclear after he was sent to the hospital with injuries sustained in the attack.

In the episode, lightweight champion Conor McGregor unexpectedly arrives, causing a disruption on the loading dock.

"I think Khabib, one of the fighters, disrespected one of his friends".

In footage released by the UFC, he said: "Just tell me where and that's it".

After McGregor's mayhem, UFC Embedded captured Nurmagomedov's immediate reaction. He said "Don't know who to credit, so hit me up if you're the OP".

McGregor last competed eight months ago, losing to undefeated Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match that reportedly paid Mayweather more than $100 million and McGregor at least $30 million.
