UFC megastar Conor McGregor made headlines on April 5 for throwing a hand truck through a UFC charter bus window from within a loading dock in Brooklyn, New Yorks’ Barclays Center. The intended target was Khabib Nurmagomedov, a fighter that reportedly had an altercation with McGregor’s teammate Artem Lobov days before.
“Notorious” ultimately landed a plea deal with the New York court system over the matter, consequently having all his criminal charges dropped in favor of community services and anger management courses. Now the Ireland native is set to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov for his lightweight title at UFC 229 on Oct. 6 in Las Vegas, Nev.
Speaking on The Jim Rome Show, UFC President Dana White revealed the repercussions of Conor McGregor’s bus attack incident.
“Conor can’t fight in New York now,” White stated. “We did an $18 million gate in New York. New York won’t have him fight in New York now.”
