MMA star Conor McGregor was charged early Friday with assault and criminal mischief for his rampage at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, police said.

McGregor, 29, and his friend Cian Cowley, 25, turned themselves in to the NYPD’s 78th Precinct in Park Slope on Thursday night.

The Irish brawler threw a metal barricade at a bus after a press conference at Barclays hyping Saturday’s UFC lightweight fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Max Holloway, police said.

The outburst allegedly was caused by McGregor’s anger over the news he would be stripped of his lightweight championship after the fight between the other contenders.

Cowley, a member of McGregor’s entourage, was charged with assault and criminal mischief, police said.

The men are expected to be arraigned Friday in Brooklyn court.
