Dana White Says Conor McGregor ‘Not Apologetic’ For UFC 223 Bus Attack

Conor McGregor apparently doesn’t have much remorse for his infamous bus attack.

The MMA superstar is facing multiple charges after violently attacking a bus at UFC 223 Media Day in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Thursday. In wake of the attack, which injured multiple fighters, UFC has reshuffled much of the main card for the pay-per-view event.

McGregor, however, is standing by his actions.

“We had a text session yesterday that was not very good,” UFC president DAna White said during an appearance on ESPN’s “Get Up!” on Friday.

When asked whether McGregor was apologetic, White simply said “no,” although he did say McGregor felt bad about injuring fighters who had nothing to do with his feud with Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Some might say that McGregor’s antics ultimately are good for the UFC, as bad press sometimes is good press in the combat sports world. However, it’s difficult to find many positives in MMA’s biggest star becoming completely unhinged.

The 29-year-old is facing charges of assault and criminal mischief. He was released from custody on $50,000 bail Friday after an arraignment.
