The UFC has issued a formal statement on the events that took place at a media day today in support of UFC 223. Following a media event for the card at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., lightweight champion Conor McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) came into the building along with members of his team and ultimately attacked a bus containing fighters from UFC 223 and their teams, witness videos showed. The attack on the bus included a broken window after McGregor threw a dolly, and the fallout from the whole thing has taken three fights off the card. McGregor teammate Artem Lobov (13-14-1 MMA, 2-4 UFC) was removed from his featherweight fight against Alex Caceres (13-11 MMA, 8-9 UFC) for his participation in the attack. Michael Chiesa (14-3 MMA, 7-3 UFC) was sent to the hospital for cuts, and ultimately his fight against Anthony Pettis (20-7 MMA, 7-6 UFC) was nixed by the New York State Atletic Commission.
