The UFC just can’t catch a break.

Fresh off Conor McGregor’s unexpected assault last month that caused three fight cancellations, several UFC employees were held at gunpoint and robbed Thursday night in Rio de Janerio.

According to UFC president Dana White, phones, wallets, and passports were among the items stolen, but no fighters were involved and no injuries have been reported.

Brazilian police arrived at the host hotel, the Windsor Marapendi, shortly after the incident and are currently investigating the matter.

The UFC staffers were in Brazil for Saturday’s UFC 224 pay-per-view event and and the theft occurred just a few hours before Friday morning’s weigh-in. 

Despite the robbery, all fights will continue as planned.

Headlining the UFC 224 card is a bantamweight title bout between champion Amanda Nunes, who retired Ronda Rousey, and Raquel Pennington, who is on a four-fight win streak.
