The UFC released new video of the melee at the Barclays Center that has superstar fighter Conor McGregor facing charges. Fellow MMA fighter Cian Cowley, 25, was hit with one count of assault and one count of criminal mischief.

McGregor was released Friday on $50,000 bail for felony criminal mischief and other charges.

McGregor will face a number of legal, and potentially bout licencing, issues in the United States over the coming months - he is due back in court on June 14 - but it may not prevent him from fighting in Russian Federation.

Footage emerged earlier this week, showing McGregor and his entourage attacking a bus containing fighters, including lightweight rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Action shot from inside the bus carrying fighters at the Barclays Center showed McGregor wildly hurling a hand truck that smashed through the vehicle's windows and cut the face of UFC combatant Mike Chiesa.

White appeared on the ESPN program "Get Up" recently and said he and Conor were working on a new deal.

"All the guys that ended up not getting fights, they'll all get paid for not getting fights", White said. You got to talk to Showtime, CBS.

Fortunately for McGregor, he didn't have his passport seized, meaning he's free to return to Ireland.

Flyweight Ray Borg, who was scheduled to face Brandon Moreno, is also unfit to fight due to multiple corneal abrasions, according to the UFC.

These segments, including the anti-fake news promo, are supposed to run frequently during news time, according to CNN . The journalist said they are trying to resist the current developments, but can not quit without paying the price.

McGregor has not fought in UFC since beating Eddie Alvarez in November 2016 and was stripped of his lightweight title before this incident. The windshield of one bus was cracked, and two fighters sustained injuries that caused them to be dropped from the Saturday fight card.

"Just tell me where and that's it", Nurmagomedov said.

The NYPD is investigating how Conor McGregor's mugshot made its way onto the internet.

"It's not that I don't think he understood what happened, he justified it".

The defendant McGregor, judge, also throws a punch at someone who was on a security detail, throws a punch judge striking that individual.

McGregor, 29, is in police custody and being held in the 78th precinct, Detective Navarro of the New York Police Department said Friday morning. "I don't know if he's on drugs or what his deal is, but to come here and do this and to act this like, you know, you're talking about a guy who has a baby", White said.

Last month, Nurmagomedov told the Times that McGregor's behavior away from the octagon troubles him.

He took time off to await the birth of his son, Conor Jack, and lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr.in his professional boxing debut last August.
