The former UFC featherweight champion did turn himself in Thursday night when he was sought for questioning following an altercation at UFC 223 media day that left him fleeing from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The incident occurred as McGregor was targeting Khabib Nurmagomedov, who had a verbal confrontation with McGregor's teammate Artem Lobov earlier in the week in New York. McGregor was arrested just before 10:30 p.m. EST on April 5 and was charged with three counts of assault and one for criminal mischief as a result. 

As a result of his and his group's actions, there had been a few changes made to the UFC 223 card, mainly the cancelations of three fights on the card. 

The main event of the UFC 223 pay-per-view card also went through several changes, mostly unrelated to McGregor's actions. Anthony Pettis, who was one of the fighters whose fight got canceled as a result of the brawl, was in the running to fight Nurmagomedov in the main event for the title. Pettis ultimately declined the fight after reportedly not being happy with what the UFC offered Pettis financially to take the main event slot. Pettis' opponent Michael Chiesa sustained cuts from the incident, which left him unable to get ready for his fight against Pettis. Nurmagomedov is currently set to headline UFC 223 against Al Iaquinta.
