McGregor's group attacked a bus using trash cans, metal barricades and the dolly, White said. "Fighters, one of our staff, one of our security guys was punched repeatedly by guys". Earlier this week, Lobov was involved in a minor hotel scuffle with UFC lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov, who is scheduled to fight Saturday against Max Holloway. He was apologetic about the people he wasn't trying to hurt, but he felt like the Khabib thing had to be done'. Insane things happen in sports ... you're dealing with human beings with personal lives and all these other things.

Chiesa was taken to the hospital, White said, and later was ruled out of his scheduled fight against Anthony Pettis.

"What the fuck", Chiesa said in the video, as blood ran down his face. @showtimepettis I hope to run this match up ASAP. That's all I have to say for now.
The ugly scenes were condemned by UFC president Dana White, who labelled them "one of the most disgusting things that's happened in the history of the company".
