Images of McGregor's team members were posted around UFC 223 with the words "Access Denied"

Members of McGregor's team were barred from entering the building during the event.

It is clear that it isn't just Conor McGregor that is now under the spotlight following the events of Thursday night.

On Saturday night, while Khabib Nurmagomedov was defeating Al Iaquinta to win McGregor's lightweight championship belt, another fighter on the UFC 223 card posted a very interesting image to Twitter.

Olivier Aubin-Mercier, who replaced Mairbek Taisumov to fight Evan Dunham, uploaded this picture of a poster, which he claimed were posted everywhere in the Barclays Centre in New York City.

If the image is legitimate, then the "Access Denied" poster had barred several members of Conor McGregor's team.

Among the individuals who were not allowed to enter the building are head coach John Kavanagh, McGregor's striking coach Owen Roddy, as well as McGregor's teammate Artem Lobov, who was removed from his own fight against Alex Caceres on the UFC 223 card following the incident.

Funnily enough, McGregor himself isn't on the access denied poster.

Although we doubt that is because he was actually allowed in, but more because he probably realises that showing up would only add to his already weighty problems.
