UFC 223 Weigh-In Highlights: Watch Khabib Nurmagomedov & Al Iaquinta Faceoff

Yes, lightweight champion Conor McGregor went off in an over-the-top, illegal tirade where he threw a metal dolly and guardrail at a bus containing Nurmagomedov following UFC 223 media day yesterday, for which he eventually turned himself in on assault charges and was bailed out and approved to go back to Ireland.

McGregor appeared in court in NY on Friday charged with assault and criminal mischief.

Iaquinta, now sitting 11th in the UFC rankings, weighed in at 155.2 lbs - 0.2 pounds over the championship limit.

On Saturday, April 7, the UFC will host UFC 223: Khabib vs. Iaquinta from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

However, the Irishman was first stripped of the featherweight title he claimed in 2015 and he has never managed to defended either crown after winning them. And now thanks to his underwear weight, he'll be fighting for a UFC title.

"This thing is so insane". Tomorrow's event will go down in Brooklyn, New York. "It's never happened in almost 20 years of doing this so we'll see".

Unboxing: Nokia 8 Sirocco
Display: The Nokia 7 Plus sports the biggest display among the three with a 6-inch full HD+ IPS display and an 18:9 aspect ratio. Android 8.0 Oreo comes pre-installed on the device, while a 3,260mAh non-removable battery is also a part of the package.

Nurmagomedov was originally set to face Tony Ferguson at the main event, but was pulled from the fight at the beginning of the week due to injury.

With his ability to smother opponents with his powerful wrestling, Nurmagomedov is now the promotion's rising star, but Iaquinta is an excellent grappler and will provide a tough test.

Then original headliner Max Holloway was pulled from the lightweight title showdown against Nurmagomedov after the athletic commission ruled that it would be risky for him to make weight for the bout.

The main event has seen all sorts of twists and turns.

However, anyone expecting to grab any of the limelight from McGregor is mistaken.
