White said he will be making a decision on McGregor's future with the promotion after this weekend's action.

EARLIER: Conor McGregor isn't only a unsafe man inside the Octagon, as he proved in a rampage on Thursday at the Barclays Center in NY (see video below).

"Right now, absolutely not", White said, when asked if he still wants to be in business with McGregor.

Show up like you wanna fight or something like this", Nurmagomedov said on UFC's "Embedded: "Vlog Series".

He previously told Reuters he made an eye-watering $US140 million ($A196 million) from last August's boxing match with Floyd Mayweather.

As for McGregor, himself, the global sports personality has kept unusually quiet over the past days.

It is clear that it isn't just Conor McGregor that is now under the spotlight following the events of Thursday night.

Flyweight Ray Borg suffered multiple cornea abrasions in the wake of the McGregor attack and his fight against Brandon Moreno was also scratched.

The Irishman has been facing backlash after his already infamous attack on a bus carrying UFC fighters at the Barclays Center in NY.

Later that day, McGregor appeared in court in NY where he was told he would be allowed to fly back to his home in Ireland ahead of his next appearance on June 14. One of the McGregor's friends and fellow fighters involved in the incident, Cian Cowley, had his bail set at $25,000.

McGregor allegedly threw something through the window of a minibus, injuring a passenger, according to an NYPD source with knowledge of the event.

Despite being worth an estimated $84m, McGregor did not have access to the $75,000 and so, had to visit a bail bondsman, who paid for him to be released from jail on Friday.

Video footage of the fracas, which caused a "minor injury" to one of the passengers, has since gone viral on social media.

McGregor hasn't fought for UFC since November 2016 and was stripped this week by UFC President Dana White of the 155-pound championship he had never defended. McGregor responded on Twitter not long after with a profane tweet that said, in part, you will "strip me of nothing". Max Halloway was scheduled to take on Khabib Nurmagomedov for the UFC lightweight belt in the main event.
