McGregor, who was seen on Friday morning being escorted in handcuffs from New York Police Department's 78th Precinct in Prospect Heights in Brooklyn, has been charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief.

The UFC star appeared in court alongside fellow fighter Cian Cowley, who was released on a 25,000 dollar bail for the same offence. Now, McGregor has been charged with assault, after turning himself into police last night. He's out of jail on bail and is due back in court in June.

UFC star Conor McGregor has finally surfaced after his dramatic arrest for attacking a bus filled with rivals, although his response threw up more questions than answers.

"They stormed the building, got down to the loading docks where the fighters were getting on buses and started to attack the buses with trash cans, dollies", White said. But not in this situation.

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

After a insane 24 hours, Conor McGregor is now out on bail and free to return to Ireland should he desire to. On Friday, the New York State Athletic Commission declared that UFC champion Max Holloway, who was slated to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov for the UFC lightweight belt in the headline match, has been medically disqualified from participating.

He attacked a bus full of fighters and his actions removed three competitors from Saturday's show, changing the landscape of the pay-per-view. "This is not the Conor McGregor that I know".

Conor McGregor received two felony charges for his attack on a bus at Barclays Center on Thursday.

Before Thursday's incident, he was stripped of his UFC lightweight title for being inactive, with the victor of Nurmagomedov-Holloway taking the belt.

McGregor and his entourage of about 20 people were let into the arena through a door during a media-day event by someone affiliated with a credentialed website, UFC president Dana White told the website MMAjunkie. "I mean, this is embarrassing for the sport and obviously for the UFC", White said.

McGregor hasn't competed in MMA since 2016 (he's gotten insanely rich since then; remember last year's fight with Floyd Mayweather?) and it was recently announced he would be stripped of his lightweight title on account of inactivity.

Lawsuits against McGregor are likely in the works as we speak.
