The moment Conor McGregor made a surprise appearance at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Thursday, it was clear he would be the center of attention and for better or for worse he made sure to give everyone watching something to talk about.

McGregor and his crew were involved in a chaotic scene backstage that saw objects being thrown at buses and at least one fighter — UFC lightweight Michael Chiesa — injured. The event happened just two days before UFC 223, and while reports are still coming in as to McGregor’s whereabouts and how the event will be affected, fighters and personalities in the MMA community took to social media to give their thoughts on the latest headline-grabbing move from “The Notorious.”
