The UFC fighter was filmed trying to throw a railing at a bus carrying a bunch of fellow MMA fighters which left them 'shaken'.

McGregor was also charged with one count of criminal mischief by New York City Police Department (NYPD) following the incident.

An UFC spokesperson said: "The organisation deems today's disruption completely unacceptable and is currently working on the consequences that will follow.

"UFC is working very closely with the New York Athletic Commission, Barclays Center security and law enforcement authorities."

Fighters had gathered at the sports centre ahead of this weekend's UFC 223, which was being headlined by Khabib Nurmagomedov and Max Holloway. Interestingly, those are the two fighters who will be battling for the Lightweight Belt, the title that McGregor was stripped of earlier yesterday.

UFC President Dana White told a press conference: "The only one that's losing a belt here is Conor. Conor is losing the belt. These two are fighting for the belt.

"The interim these two were supposed to fight for, fight doesn't happen, now one of these guys will be the champion. Tony is still the number one contender."

But that was before all the drama happened.

When White was asked by ESPN about working with Conor in the future after news of the fight emerged, the UFC chief didn't hold back, saying: "Do you want to be in business with Conor McGregor right now? Do you want to chase this guy around for interviews and buy his fights? Do you? I don't think anybody is going to want to right now.

"No, I think everybody's going to be pretty disgusted with Conor McGregor right now.

"I don't know if he's on drugs or what his deal is. But to come and do this and act like this... You're talking about a guy who has a baby. He just had a kid. This is how you're acting? You have a son at home."

Last night's wild scenes appears to stem from the confrontation between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Artem Lobov.

Before McGregor stormed a UFC presser in Brooklyn, his teammate, Lobov, was slated to fight Alex 'Bruce Leeroy' Caceres, with Nurmagomedov in the main-event challenging for UFC gold.

However, when the combatants arrived at the fighters hotel ahead of UFC 223, Lobov and Nurmagomedov had an intense head-to-head.

While the altercation wasn't physical, Nurmagomedov was filmed with his hands on Lobov's face.

Not long after, McGregor arrived in the States looking for the unbeaten UFC lightweight, while allegedly viciously attacking a bus carrying fighters, injuring Michael Chiesa who's subsequently been pulled from the card.
