Former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor is making headlines for a fracas that took place in Brooklyn, New York on Thursday, April 5. Now former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping has come forward to comment on McGregor acting “like an absolute psychopath.”
Khabib Nurmagomedov and McGregor’s teammate Artem Lobov had a heated confrontation inside a hotel room leading up to UFC 223. The two fighters were set to compete in separate bouts on the night’s card, leading to the two meeting in the hotel.
“Notorious” retaliated to the incident by escorting a large entourage backstage of Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and into one of the center’s loading docks. Nurmagomedov and a group of other fighters set to compete at UFC 223 were inside a bus within the loading dock, leading to the fracas.
McGregor and the large entourage allegedly attacked the bus, leading to the injury of several individuals. Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg would ultimately be pulled from the respective UFC 223 bouts due to injuries endured during the incident.
McGregor is now facing three misdemeanor charges of assault and a felony charge of criminal mischief for the incident. Speaking on the matter, as seen within the video above, Michael Bisping decided to break down the situation from his understanding.
“The Count” first likened McGregor’s actions to that of someone with psychopathic tendencies.
“Big news is Conor McGregor getting on like an absolute psychopath.” Bisping said. For the former champion’s full thoughts, check out the video above.
