    Irish UFC fighter Conor McGregor attacked a bus carrying fellow UFC fighters on April 5 and was later arrested by New York Police. The attack was allegedly targeted at another UFC fighter, Khabib Nurmagomedov, who was supposedly in conflict with a friend of Conor’s.

    Online sport media MMAFighting.com journalist Ariel Helwani reported on his Twitter that the UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov said he is going to make UFC fighter Conor McGregor "humble" and that he needs to "beg" him to have a chance to fight with a champion. Nurmagomedov also noted that the fight with McGregor will be so huge that he wants a world tour promoting the event.
