UFC superstar Conor McGregor is now facing charges for an incident that occurred inside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Thursday, April 7. Now four UFC champions have decided to offer their thoughts on the situation.
“Notorious” and a large entourage of the fighter’s made their way backstage into the Barclays Center on Thursday, when the group allegedly attacked a bus filled with UFC fighters set to compete at UFC 223. Multiple fighters were injured in the incident, including Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg.
The incident was allegedly brought on by Conor McGregor as retaliation for Khabib Nurmagomedov’s recent altercation with SBG Ireland’s Artem Lobov. Nurmagomedov was in the bus during the attack, but was not injured.
Conor McGregor would later turn himself in to police and is now facing misdemeanor charges for assault and a felony charge for criminal mischief. Speaking on the recent UFC broadcast, UFC champions Tyron Woodley, Demetrious Johnson, Robert Whittaker and Daniel Cormier tore into the subject by criticizing Conor McGregor for not actually having a direct physical confrontation with Nurmagomedov, rather than the fracas inside the Barclays Center.
