Breaking News: Conor McGregor charged with three counts of assault by NYPD

Following on from last night’s shocking scenes at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn, things have gone from bad to worse for Conor McGregor.

The Irishman has been charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief, per a statement released by the NYPD.

“McGregor has been charged with three counts of assault and one of criminal mischief,” said an NYPD spokesperson.

McGregor will go before a judge some time after 7am ET (12pm BST).

This development follows the news that three of the bouts scheduled for UFC 223 have been cancelled as a result of the incident. Injuries to both Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg forced the cancellation of their scheduled fights against Anthony Pettis and Brandon Moreno respectively. The third cancellation sees Artem Lobov pulled from the card due to his involvement in the chaos.

More to come.
