He handed himself in after instruction from Dana White that his plane wouldn’t be allowed to leave New York following a violent disruption at a UFC223 media event.

McGregor wasn’t the only fighter caught up in the chaos with Cian Cowley also being charged with one count of criminal mischief and a misdemeanor assault, while Dana White told TMZ Artem Lobov is “obviously not fighting this weekend” after he also took part in the disturbance.
