Video Shows View From Inside Bus As Conor McGregor Throws Dolly

Extended video footage has emerged of UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor throwing a hand truck at a bus in NY.

On Thursday famous Irish #Boxer Conor McGregor, who formerly held the UFC lightweight and featherweight titles, is charged with breaking into a van in the Barclays Center parking lot in Brooklyn along with his friends and throwing stuff around, causing damage to property.

Mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor has been arraigned on felony criminal mischief and other charges following a backstage melee at a New York City event.

The most popular fighter in UFC history spent the night in police custody, but was released on US$50,000 bail Friday afternoon.

Both men are due to appear in court again on 14 June.

Footage appears to show McGregor throwing a trolley at the bus - smashing a window - followed by further altercations. Chiesa was deemed unfit to fight by the New York State Athletic Commission and the UFC medical team. Stripped of his lightweight belt by White on Wednesday, McGregor showed up at UFC 223's media day Thursday and wreaked havoc.

"It was probably the worst conversation we ever had", White told FS1's First Things First on Friday.

"Immediately, Lobov has been removed from this weekend's card and individuals involved in the incident are not welcome at tomorrow's ceremonial weigh-in or Saturday's event at Barclays Centre", the UFC said in the statement.

Conor McGregor being arrested after the assault incident. "This is not the Conor McGregor that I know", said White. Can't see him being able to beat @TheNotoriousMMA in fact I think he gets knocked clean out. McGregor responded on Twitter not long after with a profane tweet that said, in part, you will "strip me of nothing".

"I want to fight Georges St-Pierre in New York", Nurmagomedov said.

"This is way bigger than 'are you going to fire the guy?' This is criminal", he said.

By the time Russia's Nurmagomedov and Iaquinta face off across the Octagon in Brooklyn, 511 days will have passed since McGregor won the title from Eddie Alvarez across the bridge at the Madison Square Garden in Manhattan in November 2016.

Flyweight Ray Borg suffered multiple cornea abrasions in the wake of the McGregor attack, and his fight against Brandon Moreno was also scratched.

He previously told Reuters he made an eye-watering $US140 million ($A196 million) from last August's boxing match with Floyd Mayweather.
