Staged.

If it was staged then things went terribly wrong.

Two of the fighters on the bus was not able to fight even though they were on the Bill. If it was staged then no one would have gotten hurt.

Googling to piece together a context-less post in UP ;D
TLDR?: McGregor was already stripped of his belt and threw a dolly at a bus carrying someone whom he may have fought (had he not been stripped of his belt?) and who had insulted a friend, incidentally injuring some scheduled fighters in the process?

That seems to be the summary; difficult to find good info on this because — of the links that pop up — the Washington Post called "pussy" "an unprintable word" (that sounds like how a pussy would refer to the word "pussy"), Deadspin just wants to speculate about UFC futures, ESPN's Mark Kriegel thinks that McGregor was ever anything *but* a soccer hooligan who had temporarily established enough self control to make millions via fighting, and CNN refers to... TMZ :| ... okay then.. TMZ video of McGregor throwing a dolly: http://www.tmz.com/2018/04/05/conor-mcgregor-ufc-attack-bus/

He hadn't actually been stripped of the lightweight title yet (though it had been announced he would lose the belt). Once the fight between Holloway and Nurmagomedov started, he would be "stripped" of the title because they would be fighting for it.

Anyway, it appears that Nurmagomedov had confronted a friend of McGregor's at some point and this was his idea of retaliation. Nurmagomedov and McGregor have a fairly long history of antagonism anyway. Him and his friends threw shit at a bus, which broke some windows and gave an uninvolved fighter a facial laceration. Another one was injured as well somehow and I think the two are being removed from the card.

And I doubt this will ruin his UFC career. None of the fans are really going to be surprised or care that he's a thug that wants to throw shit at a bus. UFC is losing viewers and fighters, so they're probably not going to ban him for life unless he essentially leaves them no other alternative (which I admit he may do). Assuming he doesn't do that, he'll get a ban for a time, and then he'll be allowed back if he still intends to fight.

Professional cage fighter goes on a violent rampage, is not a career ruining move. Unless someone dies. Jon Jones did coke, he even hit and ran a pregnant woman! We still forgave him. What probably has finished Jones is the repeated substance violation (cheating). We hate cheaters, but a cage fighter that gets violent, Jesus forgives.

Not nearly as much as if White bans him for life. Like I said, they're losing fighters and viewers. If that wasn't the case, sure...but it is the case.

The best joke in the movie is in the climax when he invents a distraction by sticking a celery stick up his ass and running around.
