UFC lightweight Michael Chiesa was injured in the incident, and suffered a laceration to his face causing him to be ruled out of Saturday's fight. Flyweight Ray Borg will also be absented from the fight against Brandon Moreno, the UFC said in a statement, as he suffered “multiple cornea abrasions” following McGregor’s attack.

According to the NYPD, McGregor has now been charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief.

“He's still in custody, still at the police precinct until he's removed to court this morning,” NYPD’s Thomas Antonetti told reporters.
