UFC isn't suing Conor McGregor despite the Bus Attack. What might be the Reason? MMA
Former two-division champion Conor McGregor was taken into custody for attacking a bus full of UFC 223 fighters. He has been charged with several criminal acts including 13 counts of threatening, four counts of attack (recklessly cause physical injury to another person), one count of attempted assault with a purpose to cause physical harm, and one count of wild endangerment for his part in the bus attack.

Despite these all, UFC is not suing the former lightweight champion. Everybody knows The Notorious Conor is the most popular and entertaining fighter in the UFC. So, UFC might be well aware of the Irishman's popularity as they don't want the charm of UFC fade away.

UFC president Dana White recently made comment on this. So, what did he say?

On the post match conference of UFC 223, reporters asked Dana about how the company is going to react on the bus incident led by Conor McGregor and Artem Lobov. The UFC president seem quite positive. "We talked yesterday. It's good. I think there's a mutual respect between us," he said.

Lobov was pulled from the UFC 223 immediately after the incident.

"I had so many things thrown at me this week, to focus on this show was insane. We'll get back and we'll focus on Conor McGregor."

Dana White previously said that the Irishman would return back to the octagon in September. When asked if the match is still possible, he said:

"I don't know. You can't ask me anything about Conor. I don't know. I don't know anything about Conor. I haven't thought about Conor. I haven't thought about it. There's nothing to think about this week except for this event."

Following the bus incident, the UFC chief had mentioned the incident as one of the awful act ever done by the fighter in UFC history. Earlier, Paul Daley was removed from the roster in 2010 after he clubbed Josh Koscheck from behind at UFC 113, Jason High was also removed from the promotion after he pushed referee Kevin Mulhall following his TKO defeat to Rafael dos Anjos at UFC Fight Night 42.
