How to remove this light fixture?

I'm planning on removing the the drop ceiling and replacing it with drywall. Once I turn off the breaker, how do I remove this type of light fixture from the ceiling?

Use a pair of pliers to unscrew that knurled nut in the center and the whole think will drop down to allow you to disconnect the wiring. ONLY disconnect the wires to the lamp fixture itself and leave any other wires connected.

Yes, otherwise you could be picking up broken glass later.
