McGregor turned himself into police on Thursday night and as charged with three counts of misdemeanor assault and one count of felony criminal mischief stemming from his rampage at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Mobile phone videos emerged on Thursday showed McGregor, 29, hurling objects at a bus as it was leaving Barclays Centre after a media event for UFC 223. At one point, video from inside the bus shows a hand truck smashing through the bus windows, cutting UFC fighter Mike Chiesa's face.

UFC President Dana White told ESPN on Friday that a UFC fighter on the bus was hit and cut by a dolly thrown through the window‚ and that another fighter had the cornea of his eyes cut as the glass broke into dust-like material.

UFC's president, Dana White, echoed that reporting on Fox Sports 1's "First Things First," saying McGregor flew several people to NY from Ireland when he heard of the incident at the hotel.

McGregor's group attacked a bus using trash cans, metal barricades and a two-wheeled dolly, White said. But not in this situation.

Fueled by revenge and running with a pack of his "hoodlums", McGregor's antics landed him in jail - and injured two fighters on Saturday's UFC 223 card. The judge allowed McGregor to keep his passport which means he can fly back to Ireland. White said credentialed journalists from McGregor's website, The Mac Life, let McGregor and a large entourage into Barclays Center. Fighter Max Holloway tweeted Friday that he'd been forced to withdraw from his top-billed match against Khabib Nurmagomedov for the lightweight title, which UFC is stripping from McGregor because of his long absence from UFC fights.

Israeli police: Palestinian who tried to stab Israeli shot

"The big question everybody's been asking me - 'Are you firing Conor McGregor?' - this is bigger than Conor McGregor getting fired", White said.

Conor McGregor's future with the company is in doubt.

McGregor's teammate, Artem Lobov, also had his fight against Alex Caceres cancelled because of his involvement in the incident. His destructive actions also injured fellow UFC boxers including Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg.

White said during Wednesday's pre-fight press conference that "one of these guys will be the (lightweight) champion, period" in reference to Holloway and Nurmagomedov.

Two UFC fighters were pulled from upcoming bouts due to injuries they sustained in the fracas.

He took time off to await the birth of his son, Conor Jack, and lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr.in his professional boxing debut last August.
