ESPN reports the NYPD has not issued an arrest warrant for McGregor.
According to multiple witnesses, McGregor, 29, ran into the arena's loading dock and began hurling objects at a bus, which was taking a group of UFC fighters to a nearby hotel.
Conor McGregor sure knows how to make news, if you believe all press is good press, anyway.
Dana White also added during the press conference that he expects McGregor to return to the Octagon later in 2018.
This weekend's fight against Alex Caceres provided Lobov an opportunity to try to end a two-match losing streak. McGregor delivered a brief and to-the-point reaction on Twitter before later gatecrashing the UFC 223 media day, sparking chaotic scenes. A week filled with outrageous incidents was too much for the UFC to stand behind. Khabib Nurmagomedov faces Max Holloway in the main event.
On the bus were several UFC fighter including Khabib Nurmagomedov and Michael Chiesa, who was cut up when the window broke.
"There is a warrant out for Conor McGregor's arrest and they're looking for him right now", White said.
However, ABC News reported on Thursday that NY police are still investigating the incident and have not issued a warrant yet. His plane cannot take off, he can't leave the state of NY. Also per President Dana White, McGregor will not be at the show.
Asked whether he wants to be in business with McGregor, White said "absolutely not". McGregor's last fight was a crossover fight with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, which drew 4.3 million pay-per-view buys in North America, the second most in history.
"You want to grab 30 [expletive] friends and come down here and do what you did today?"
McGregor last fought at all in a boxing match he lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr. on August 26, 2017.
"When this fight is over, champion", White said at a news conference, gesturing to Nurmagomedov and Holloway.
