Judge sets Conor McGregor's at $50K after UFC bus attack

NARCH  NARCH30

Bail for Cowley was reportedly being set at US$25,000.

McGregor will face a number of legal, and potentially bout licencing, issues in the United States over the coming months - he is due back in court on June 14 - but it may not prevent him from fighting in Russian Federation. At one point he can be seen running for a dolly before picking it up and throwing it at the moving vehicle, breaking a window through which passengers can be seen.

UFC President Dana White said he had talked to McGregor about fighting in September but now everything is up in the air.

"No ... no", White said on the program when asked if he would help Conor on this one.

After one of the UFC's most chaotic weeks - with McGregor led from a police station in handcuffs to face several charges - the promotion got down Saturday night to what it does best: Put on a show. His bail was set at US$50,000, but his passport will not be seized by USA authorities and he will be allowed to fly back to his native Ireland.

Recent flyweight title challenger Ray Borg posted on Twitter that Chiesa was injured when McGregor threw a hand truck at the bus carrying the fighters.

He was due to fight for the lightweight title at Saturday's UFC main event.

As a result of the attack, three fights on the card have been canceled.

The most popular fighter in UFC history spent the night in police custody, but was released on US$50,000 bail Friday afternoon. The matter is in the hands of law enforcement and I can not really say more. According to MMA Junkie, Anthony Pettis - who had been scheduled to fight Chiesa - has been called upon to fight Nurmagomedov, although reports indicated other fighters might still be chosen.

"Conor McGregor's team just attacked our bus". "It's not that I don't think he understood what happened, it's just. he justified it, it was justified to him".

"This is bigger than Conor McGregor getting fired, he's probably going to be a convicted felon when this is over".

ESPN reported that Lobov, a teammate of McGregor's, had been involved in a minor scuffle this week with Nurmagomedov at a hotel.

He previously told Reuters he made an eye-watering $US140 million ($A196 million) from last August's boxing match with Floyd Mayweather.

He later reiterated that stance on Fox Sports' "UFC Tonight", saying: "Conor does want to fight".
