Conor’s actions at the media day event put many people in danger. Two of the people that were injured from this event was Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg. Michael Chiesa was sitting at the window on the bus which Mcgregor broke with a dolly, so he was hospitalized and later deemed unsafe to fight against Anthony Pettis due to the number of cuts on his head. Another fighter who got injured was Ray Borg who supposedly got shards of glass in his eye from the incident and was removed from his fight with Brandon Moreno.
Per sources, Chiesa/Pettis and Borg/Moreno are both off. Chiesa’s facial cuts, and his weight cut was thrown off. Borg started to experience problems with his eye, from the particles of glass.

Mcgregor also injured UFC employee, Reed Harris, and his coworker. Reed Harris is the Vice President of Athlete Development who was showered with glass and cut. His coworker suffered a broken knuckle due to people on Conor’s team throwing punches.
Conor was set in front of a judge today where he was let off on bail and able to travel back to his home country of Ireland. He will have another hearing in Brooklyn on June 14, 2018.
Conor Mcgregor has hit an all-time low as he went from champ-champ to no champ to criminal.
