Chiesa vs. Pettis, Borg vs. Moreno Reportedly Off After Conor McGregor Attack

USA TODAY Sports

Chiesa, who was scheduled to face Anthony Pettis on the bill, was transported to hospital, but was later released and is now in the throes of his final weight cut.

Chiesa released a statement on Twitter, detailing that "a decision was made by the New York State Athletic Commission to pull me from UFC 223".

In video shot from inside the bus during the attack, Chiesa can be heard saying he was cut and asking how bad the bleeding is. It is unclear whether another fight will be promoted to the PPV segment of the card. Borg's flyweight contest with Brandon Moreno will no longer go ahead.

Borg, on the other hand, was admitted to the hospital later in the evening after experiencing problems with his eyes. MMA Junkie later confirmed he had been withdrawn from the card.

Per Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting, Conor McGregor was reportedly involved in a backstage brawl at the UFC 223 media day event; vandalizing property at the arena.

Honestly speaking, Conor McGregor may have pulled off this as either a publicity stunt or as retaliation after Nurmagomedov confronted the former's friend Artem Lobov in a hotel lobby earlier this week.

It appears Conor McGregor's Brooklyn bus attack will, unfortunately, lead to the cancellation of a strong lightweight fight after all.

It's been a drama-filled fight week, with Tony Ferguson forced off the card after suffering a freak knee injury.

Yet Nurmagomedov noted that the UFC staff would never have let him off of the bus so close to this Saturday's card, where he will meet featherweight champion Max Holloway, in his response to the chaos later in the afternoon.
