Conor McGregor Pleads Guilty To Disorderly Conduct, Will Not Go To Jail

Share

Speaking outside the court, McGregor thanked family and friends for their support throughout the case. "He will have to do 5 days of community service, pay restitution for the damage to the bus, and enter anger management evaluation".

The fracas - which occurred a day after McGregor was stripped of his lightweight title - followed a news conference for the UFC 223 event at Brooklyn's Barclays Center in early April.

There were also three protections orders served against McGregor, two of them by UFC fighters Ray Borg and Michael Chiesa.

MMAJunkie reports McGregor will undergo five days of community service and between one and three days of anger management classes.

This plea deal will not affect McGregor's travel visa and he will not have a criminal record either. Nurmagomedov later issued a challenge to McGregor to show up with his team to settle the matter.

Here's what happened inside the Brooklyn courtroom on Thursday - Conor accepted a plea deal in which the felony count was dismissed.

The Dubliner didn't react but, after he pled guilty to disorderly conduct, Khabib ramped up the pressure to get McGregor inside the Octagon again.

McGregor's manager, Audie Attar, gave a statement outside the court, saying the Irish fighter would be "getting back to business". Cian Cowley, a McGregor teammate at SBG Ireland, also was arrested in April and pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct. It was also reported that Dana White would still retain McGregor as a UFC fighter.

Two fighters hurt by broken glass were unable to compete.

At a NY court hearing today, Mr McGregor and Mr Cowley pleaded guilty to reduced charges in return for community service and agreeing to attend anger management programmes as part of their plea deal.

In August 2017, McGregor launched a boxing career with a fight against ex-welterweight Floyd Mayweather.

It stems from an incident caught on camera, where McGregor is accused of throwing a hand-truck into a bus.

Hugh's lawyer said the Supreme Court got it right because Tini "was essentially advocating divorce by unilateral demand". Tini has been waging legal war against her husband since 2016, when a family court judge refused to grant her divorce.
