Lobov, scheduled to fight Alex Caceres on Saturday, was also pulled from the UFC 223 card after appearing to be part of the group with McGregor, according to White.

"I'm devastated to say the least", tweeted Chiesa.

Late Thursday, McGregor turned himself in to the New York Police Department although no formal charges had been filed, a spokesman for the agency told the Los Angeles Times.

McGregor answered, "Yes, your honor", when the judge asked whether he understood orders to stay away from the alleged victims in the case.

McGregor was granted bail of $50,000 and learned that he would be free to return to Ireland following his rampage through Barclays Centre the previous day.

McGregor and co-defendant Cian Cowley are due back in court June 14. "He has no criminal history and the bail package is completely appropriate", McGregor's lawyer Jim Walden told the court.

Conor McGregor has not expressed remorse over the incident, UFC boss Dana White said. "Conor's in a lot of trouble", he added.

Speaking to ESPN's Brett Okamoto (note: contains language NSFW), White called McGregor's actions "disgusting" and that he had no idea "what his deal is" right now.

"Dana, Conor McGregor's team just attacked our bus", he said. "There's so many more moving pieces to this thing".

The man had claimed, to a crew member, that he had a bomb in his hand-carry baggage, preliminary police investigations revealed. Dr Ng added that RSAF pilots are on standby round the clock, and that "every threat is considered real until proven otherwise".

McGregor, who was seen Friday being escorted in handcuffs from NYPD's 78th Precinct in Prospect Heights in Brooklyn, has been charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief.

Two were left injured from broken glass and McGregor now faces charges of "felony criminal mischief and misdemeanor counts of assault, attempted assault, menacing and reckless endangerment", per the New York Post.

White accused the Irish star and other men of "storming the building" on Thursday.

The UFC released new video Saturday of Conor McGregor's meltdown Thursday at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. "Broke one of the windows and cut Michael Chiesa real bad".

"He's going to jail", White said.

He previously told Reuters he made an eye-watering US$140 million from last August's boxing match with Floyd Mayweather but has not fought in the Octagon since the win over Alvarez.

McGregor, a former lightweight and featherweight champion in UFC, has become one of the stars of his sport, best known for his antics and bravado leading up to fights.

Reports suggested the confrontation had been sparked by an earlier run-in Lobov had with UFC lightweight title contender Khabib Nurmagomedov - who was on the targeted bus.
