McGregor negotiating plea after UFC 223 incident

Conor McGregor is in plea negotiations with regard to the charges of assault and criminal mischief stemming from his actions at UFC 223’s media day in April.

McGregor and co-defendant Cian Cowley made a brief appearance at court in Brooklyn on Thursday and remain free on bail. Their next court date is July 26.

McGregor, 29, was charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief after attacking a charter bus carrying UFC fighters, including Khabib Nurmagomedov, at Barclays Center in New York, throwing a moving dolly through a window and injuring other fighters.

“I regret my actions that led me here today,” McGregor told the media outside the courthouse. “I understand the seriousness of this matter, and I am hopeful that it gets resolved soon.”

McGregor was stripped of his featherweight and lightweight belts in April due to inactivity, having first taken time off when his first child was born and then training and fighting against Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match last August.
