GETTYTony Ferguson has been forced to withdraw from his UFC 223 bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov

Now, the NYPD is looking for McGregor, reports state, as a warrant is out for the fighter's arrest.

However, ABC News reported on Thursday that NY police are still investigating the incident and have not issued a warrant yet.

Khabib Nurmagomedov was a picture of supreme confidence as he met with his UFC 223 opponent Max Holloway last night for the ceremonial pre-fight press conference. He can be seen tossing trash cans and being prevented from throwing a barricade at a bus during his unannounced appearance in NY.

On the bus were several UFC fighter including Khabib Nurmagomedov and Michael Chiesa, who was cut up when the window broke.

And after all the drama, the Irishman and his entourage sprinted to an SUV and fled the scene.

When asked if he would continue doing business with McGregor, White responded "absolutely not".

"What happened today was criminal, it was disgusting, and we need to make sure it never happens again". "This was a real bad career move for him".

Staffers said Esty repaid the federal government last week with her personal funds. "We could have been the face of it". In an approximately 300-word statement on Facebook , Elizabeth Esty seemed to admit that she mishandled the situation.

Earlier this week, Lobov was involved in a minor hotel scuffle with UFC lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov, who is also scheduled to fight at UFC 223. McGregor tweeted his displeasure with the news shortly after.

Giving an interview to ESPN correspondent Brett Okamoto, White said he believed McGregor and "20 guys" were given access to the area of the arena where UFC 223 fighters were boarding a bus after the press conference.

White also says Rose Namajunas was also on the bus and was very shaken up in the incident - she nearly broke her hand.

"You don't know. He had a whole posse and a whole team with him doing all of this". McGregor's actions now put any future fights very much in doubt.

White wondered if McGregor was on drugs and chastised him for behaving violently as a father. "You have a son at home".

UFC president Dana White revealed at a press conference ahead of Saturday's card at the Barclays Center in NY that McGregor's 155-pound championship will be up for grabs, with the Irishman having not fought in the Octagon since winning his belt in November 2016.

With the departure of Ronda Rousey, the inability of Jones to stay clean and McGregor's lengthy absence, the UFC has lacked major star power over the past year and a half or so, although Georges St-Pierre's long-awaited comeback has helped.
