New York police charged Conor McGregor with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief after his attack on a bus injured several UFC competitors last week in Brooklyn. Floyd Mayweather reacted to the meltdown by suggesting that provocative behavior might be good for selling a fight, but McGregor needs to understand when the event is history.

"I feel that when we're building a certain fight, whether it's boxing or MMA, there's a certain way you approach it," Mayweather said to ESNEWS. "The buildup to the Mayweather-McGregor fight was amazing. The Mayweather-Pacquiao fight was amazing. Canelo-Mayweather. When you're building huge fights of such high magnitude, there's a certain way you go about it. 

"But when the fight is over and you're out here just living your regular life, your everyday life, you must carry yourself in a professional manner. That's what I truly believe."
