"Notorious" faces three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief for his actions.
What McGregor wanted, McGregor got - in cash, championships, and living his best luxe life. UFC is working very closely with the New York Athletic Commission, Barclays Center security and law enforcement authorities.
For his trouble, McGregor landed in some.
The New York Police Department says McGregor was charged and awaiting a court appearance Friday, facing three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief.
He previously told Reuters he made an eye-watering $US140 million ($A196 million) from last August's boxing match with Floyd Mayweather.
McGregor and Cowley must return to court June 14.
White told ESPN that McGregor, who showed up to the media event unexpectedly, was retaliating for an incident earlier in the week between lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov and McGregor's teammate Artem Lobov.
Earlier, in an interview with USA media, UFC President Dana White said last night's incident had "nothing to do with him being stripped" of his titles.
McGregor turned himself into the NYPD following his destruction late Thursday night.
"I think after this disgusting and despicable move, everybody's relationship with Conor will change", White said. It was justified to him.
"Obviously, the big question everybody's been asking me is, 'Are you firing Conor McGregor?'" Mr White told the broadcaster.
SpaceX to launch 10 satellites, attempt a fairing recovery
In the last launch from Vandenberg, SpaceX on February 22 sent into orbit a Hisdesat PAZ satellite for Spain aboard a Falcon 9. SpaceX did not immediately respond to Newsweek's inquiry about what would happen to the booster if it's not recovered.
Chiesa and Borg were forced to withdraw from fights this weekend due to their injuries.
This is when everything went down as McGregor started throwing trash cans, chairs, barricades and other items at the buses.
"Guys will say things, push, shove, grab each other".
"There's nothing like this that has ever happened", claimed White.
Lobov was yanked from the card and banned from the building.
He appeared before Kings County Judge Consuelo Mallafre-Melendez in the hearing in Brooklyn Criminal Court.
McGregor was not scheduled to be part of Saturday's fight, which will determine who takes his title as the next lightweight champion. "You's'll strip me of nothing", he tweeted, invoking an expletive.
However, ABC News reported on Thursday that NY police are still investigating the incident and have not issued a warrant yet.
Two fighters on the bus were injured by broken glass and had to be hospitalized, the UFC said.
UFC has not immediately issued discipline against its biggest box office attraction.
"Will he fight again?" McGregor and his girlfriend welcomed their first child, a son, in May 2017.
But not even fatherhood could mellow the irate Irishman. He said McGregor was "apologetic about the people he wasn't trying to hurt".
