Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg Off UFC 223, Courtesy of McGregor Rampage

More fallout from Conor McGregor’s rampage yesterday, and it’s the worst kind: injured innocent bystanders.

As passengers in the van whose windows McGregor and company smashed, UFC 223 competitors Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg were showered with broken glass.

Well, Chiesa suffered facial lacerations that have knocked him off the card, and Borg suffered corneal abrasions from getting glass fragments in his eyes. That means the bout between Chiesa and Anthony Pettis is off, and the bout between Borg and Brandon Moreno is off.

Add to that the scrapped fight between Artem Lobov and Alex Caceres, and now UFC 223’s card is just ten fights.

Thanks, Conor.

Here’s the UFC’s statement:

Thursday afternoon, following the UFC 223 media day at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, an incident in the facility injured two athletes on Saturday’s card, forcing them to be pulled from the event.

Lightweight Michael Chiesa, who received several facial cuts, was deemed unfit to fight by the New York State Athletic Commission and the UFC medical team, and he was removed from his bout against Anthony Pettis.

Flyweight Ray Borg, who was scheduled to face Brandon Moreno, was deemed unfit to fight as well due to multiple corneal abrasions.

Also removed from the card was the featherweight bout between Artem Lobov and Alex Caceres due to Lobov’s involvement in the incident.

UFC 223 will proceed as scheduled with 10 bouts. Moving to the Pay-Per-View main card is the featherweight bout between Zabit Magomedsharipov and Kyle Bochniak.
