More than likely it was staged for publicity to gain media attention for McGregor's next fight! The UFC needs McGregor more than he needs the UFC!

To put it bluntly this is about the stupidest thing I've heard on the matter. Sadly I seen multiple people spew this nonsense. The UFC spent more than a decade millions of dollars to finally get MMA legalized in New York. Your premise is that they picked their biggest star. A star that as an Irish citizen requires a visa to work in the US. Had him fly to the US. Attack a bus full of UFC fighters in front of a multitude of cameras. Commit several crimes, one of which is a felony, in front of the most reliable witness possible video, injure two fighters causing them to pulled from the card, pulled a third fighter from the card (Artem Lobov) for his participation, pay all the fighters (except Lobov) that had their fights cancelled for this nonsense, and for what? Not only has the Conor cost himself millions, he's cost the UFC millions, and potentially made himself unavailable to fight for sometime.

This isn't some WWE backstage stunt. Where the "police" haul the wrestler off to "jail". Yet no actually arrests are made. He committed actual crimes. People really got injured. The police took him into custody. Conor went before a judge and he was actually arraigned. He's been charged with 1 felony and 3 misdemeanors. 

Dude is out of control. Like Jon Jones before him, he thinks he's above the law. Which he pretty much has been up until now. This isn't the first time he's gone off the rails. In fact, each incident gets progressively worse. And they will continue to, until finally gets a reality check of real consequences. First he chucked full cans of Monster Energy drinks at Nate Diaz over a crowd full of people striking one of them. What happened, he got a fined.  Then he hopped over the cage at a Bellator event in Ireland, accosted the referee, and assaulted multiple Bellator officials. What happened to him...nothing. He should have been locked up for that. Now he's trespassing  with a gang of cronies, punching a security guard, and chucking objects at an occupied bus full of people. Hopefully get a judge and DA that like to make examples out of wealthy arrogant pricks that think the law doesn't apply to them. Most likely he'll get a slap on the wrist, a fine, and pay out a bunch of cash in civil settlements. Which will just empower him to do something even worse next time.

Lobov isn't some innocent victim. He gave an interview saying multiple disparaging things about Khabib. Calling him a coward and a pussy. Khabib saw him in the hall way and confronted him saying "Say it to my face". Lobov "Said he didn't say that". Yet I saw the interview. He really did say that. Khabib calling him out on it. Isn't the same as what Conor did by a long shot. There was no fight between Lobov and Khabib. Most faces offs get more heated than that confrontation.

Yeah, I realize that, and didn't mean to imply that Lobov was an innocent victim. Confronting him as Khabib did, with his team mates basically surrounding him was a little unsavory in my book, that's all. Also, although I didn't see it, I keep hearing that Khabib slapped Lobov during the lobby confrontation.

Around the Network

There is nothing wrong with a street fight to promote the next match. More drama sells more tickets to the fight, more subscriptions on pay TV and a huge increase in merchandise sales. Americans love drama because they understand how Capitalism works. Wealthy people can do what they want because they can make charges magically go away.

Since when is Conor American?

I'll still give this a 6/10 :P

This isn't a scuffle at a face off. If you were to pull a stunt like this, the last place you would do it is New York. MMA just got legalized there. This is just the type of thing the could undo it. This isn't some stunt. Multiple people were injured. Edit: He's facing 20 misdemeanors and 2 felonies. Yep, reeks of a publicity stunt.
