On Thursday famous Irish Boxer Conor McGregor, who formerly held the UFC lightweight and featherweight titles, is charged with breaking into a van in the Barclays Center parking lot in Brooklyn along with his friends and throwing stuff around, causing damage to property. His destructive actions also injured fellow UFC boxers including Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg. His attack on the bus allegedly targeted UFC fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov. He fled the scene afterward in an SUV with blacked out mirrors.

Due to the disturbance, three scheduled fights had to be cancelled in the Barclays Centre. Conor is right now facing multiple charges for the assault and property damage.

The police issued a warrant for his arrest but he later turned himself in and paid a bail worth $50,000. Due to the severity of the charges against him, it is likely that the boxer might have to face quite some time in the courts.

Statements from the manager

Conor's manager Audie Attar released a statement on Saturday defending him and said that they are waiting for the verdict from the law and the UFC, they are the ones who will decide on a punishment. He sounded hopeful and said that Conor is eager to fight again as soon as possible.

Situation looking bleak for McGregor

Conor Mcgregor hasn't fought in the UFC since his last title match in November 2016 against Edie Alvarez where he knocked him out in the second round. People were anticipating his return to the boxing ring this year but in the light of recent events and impending lawsuits, the chances of his return are looking pretty slim.

Conor no doubt is an important star for the UFC, being the only man in history to hold two titles at the same time in different weight categories. But this mess up of his will be hard to clean even with all the money he brings to the UFC.

It has also been speculated that Conor might be taking drugs while some people claimed that the entire fiasco was a publicity claiming stunt.

The severity of the situation will now only unfold with time.
