McGregor, who was one of a number of people filmed allegedly vandalising the vehicle, turned himself into police custody after local police issued a warrant for his arrest.

BBC Sport reports that the 29-year-old will see a judge at 7am local time (12pm BST) to answer four separate charges.

“McGregor has been charged with three counts of assault and one of criminal mischief,” a NYPD spokesperson said.

Two fighters were injured in the incident, which saw a trolley thrown at the bus, and have been withdrawn from the under card of Saturday’s event.
