Things got crazy in a hurry earlier today (Thurs., April 5, 2018) during the UFC 223 media day festivities after Conor McGregor — along with 30 of his crew members — attacked a bus full of fighters in an attempt to presumably get at Khabib Nurmagomedov.

See the raw footage here.

Innocent bystanders were affected as Micheal Chiesa suffered facial lacerations during the whole ordeal and had to hit the local hospital, and Rose Namajunas narrowly avoided getting struck by a chair. Meanwhile, Artem Lobov — who was part of the goon squad — was yanked from the event by Dana White.

Naturally, Twitter was set ablaze by the crazy events.

Say what? #Fight
