Conor McGregor's attack on a bus in New York in April has left a fellow UFC fighter scared to leave her house.

The Irishman launched a trolley at the vehicle's windows at the Barclays Centre in a melee that saw him arrested.

McGregor avoided a prison term for the attack and returns to the Octagon against Khabib Nurmagomedov on October 6.

Rose Namajunas - the UFC strawweight champion - was caught up in the attack and has struggled to recover.

She began seeing a therapist and her coach has now revealed she is afraid to leave home.

Trevor Wittman told Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show : "She doesn't leave her house.

"It’s still there. She doesn't go in public places. When you’re in a public place and there’s people everywhere, you’re going to be like ‘Oh my god, what could happen?’

"Like if you’re involved in a 9/11 bombing, it’s gonna be hard to be in a city scenario. Every time you get in an elevator you’re gonna think of it.

"I wasn't on the bus. I actually joked with her when I came back. I thought it was nothing serious. I was joking about it and she started crying. I was like 'oh my God what really happened?'

"And they were like when the window broke, it sounded like a gunshot."

Namajunas, who has beaten former champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk in her last two fights, is not expected to return to the UFC until next year.
