Conor McGregors day of enjoying NY and other cities may be over soon After the video showing what Conor did and Conor most likely getting convicted of a crime, will most likely result in no longer able to enter the US

Any green card will be subject to good behavior as in no convictions.

That’s aside from the lawsuit and possible settlement with Dana White and UFC.

Conor might be a fighter that’s one of a kind but Conor made sure he is now going down as a sore loser!



Conor McGregor charged after allegedly attacking bus filled with UFC fighters | Fox News

Too bad that Conor refrained from physical attack!

Btw “allegedly” can be replaced by “proven” as it is clearly shown on tape!

Soon Conor will probably come on TV to say he is sorry as his managers will probably tell Conor the same as any lawyer that the USA is the country where he made the most money.

Not able to enter might hurt Conor more than he could imagine.

Truly difficult to know exactly how much, if any, of the bus attack was preplanned with even some acquiescence from the UFC. Then again we must consider Conor Mcg could have done some pretty serious damage if he was not prevented from throwing the guard rail at the bus. How he managed to get the handtruck and allowed to hurl it through the bus window, given all the security around does seem a tad suspicious it must be said. Granted 3 fighters were injured , would Dana White have sacrificed his own fighters to serious injury or worse for the sake of generating hype for a Conor Mcg vs Winner of UFC 223, Khabib vs Max Holloway?. Some have indicated Conor Mcg was secretly planning a guest appearance at the UFC 223 presser, then just went overboard afterwards & that part was never part of the original plan.

Still, Dana White was non committal on whether Mcg would fight in the UFC again. Replying " I dunno" several times to that same question.

I do think Conor Mcg's increased ill feelings toward Khabib stemmed from Khabib performing quite admirably in interviews and press conferences prior the fight. He came across as a bona fided superstar and could be taking some of the attention away from Conor Mcg. There is room for only one megastar in the weight division & so they must fight this one out to see who is the champ. Since Conor may never be able to fight in the USA again, look for a fight in Russia , then a fight in Dublin Ireland for both men.

This one is interesting as the only real way for Conor Mcg to negate many of Khabib's weapons is to work first on his headgame. An expert in breaking down his opponents mentally, what does he have planned for Khabib?.

Incidentally, Artem Lobov , bff to Conor Mcg and a Russian national with strong Jewish roots was involved in an Russian TV interview wherein he called Khabib a "*****". Then he got involved with an exchange with Khabib just days ago ending in Conor Mcg allegedly standing up for his friend by returning the favor at the post presser. There is no love lost between these two fighting camps. If both Khabib and Conor Mcg ever do meet in the Octagon, the fight well could be the biggest MMA fight of all time.

Firstly, this whole thing screams of WWE which is what Dana has been pushing for for a while. Its not best vs best its best drama to create a ppv. I am sure hed hate the card to fall apart like it has but the drama is exactly what he wanted.

To me it looked like retaliation for what Khabib did to Lobov, but way OTT but thats how WWE would do it. Dana mentioned nothing about firing him in (chopped up small part) interview that I just watched. Which means in his head theyre fighting at the end of the summer for the biggest PPV in UFC history. Itll be in the USA, I doubt hell have anything major happen to him. Money talks. Dublin would be the best place to hold it, Croke Park.

Having said all that, I am a McGregor "fanboy" after all of this it wouldnt hurt my feelings not to see him fight again. But it looks like it will happen imho

If this was a work it went completely arwy. Athletes and staff members got hurt. WWE while staging madness looks to protect talent. 3 matches were impacted. If not staged, this man should be banned for life. This went way too far. What stunt will be pulled next by him if he's not sent packing?

Indeed a ban for life would be setting a couple example. With a conviction under his belt, Conor won’t be back in the US as many Countries including England, etc won’t allow people with a conviction to obtain a tourist visa and/or keep a green card.

How was this planned? Members of the Mac Life press team let Connor and his friends in to face Khabib. (remember Connor owns the Mac Life). Connor threw a dolly at a bus which broke the window which caused injuries to someone's face and eye. Connor was turned himself in to NYPD and had to post 50K in bail. If the DA moves ahead he could potentially face probation with community service or anger management classes or who knows 1 year in jail, and also let's not forget the lawsuits from the people injured. He could also be banned from entering the USA. The is a lot of risk to take for a "planned" event. Connor could lose a lot of money opportunities from being banned in the USA.

The WWE is a scripted program. All the stunts that they do are rehearsed. Dana wants fighters to hype up the fights a la WWE and Floyd Mayweather since that brings interests in the fight and makes promoting a fight easier for the company. Connor was excellent at this. Joanna is good at it too.

Remember the UFC is owned by WME not Zuffa. Dana can't really fire an employee without getting approval from the top. The Fertitta bros are not in charge and can't back Dana up. I remember Dana fired Paul Daley when he sucker punched Josh Koscheck. This was under the Fertitta ownership.

This is the kind of thing that alters your view of a person. Conor's a piece of ****, who interferes with people's careers like that? He's going to get sued big time for sure, by both the fighters that got pulled from the card and the UFC.

This is just a massive black eye for the sport. I think he probably planned to cause a ruckus, but not hurt anyone. It got carried way too far in the moment.

Typical over kill by McGregor who shot himself in the foot when he hurt the people on the bus.

I think this was a planned hype event by McGregor to get in the limelight that totally and stupidly backfired. He can't stand for a second not being the headliner in anything, even this event where he wasn't even on the card.


The injuring of those fighters and all the money lost by the promoters and fighters due to this moronic action should hurt McGregor big time. With this action I hope he receives at the very least a many year ban from fighting along with a big fine. There will be civil suits up the ying yang coming as well.


If MME does nothing it will be a major black eye to the sport.
