McGregor had earlier assaulted Nurmagomedov's bus, which was also carrying other UFC fighters, breaking one window and injuring one fighter. The "attack" was allegedly caused by a conflict between Nurmagomedov and Artem Lobov, a teammate and good friend of McGregor's. The Irish fighter was arrested by police
