Former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor is making headlines for being involved in a fracas inside the Barclays Center. Now TMZ has come forward to report that it is seemingly unlikely that “Notorious” will make it to court for the case.
McGregor decided to make his presence known in Brooklyn, New York on Thursday, April 5, by taking a large entourage backstage of the Barclays Center. There, the Irish native attempted to retaliate against Khabib Nurmagomedov for having previously slapped McGregor’s teammate Artem Lobov in a hotel.
Nurmagomedov was in a bus filled with fellow UFC fighters within the center’s loading dock, leading to a massive fracas. McGregor and his entourage allegedly attacked the bus, leading to the injury of several individuals.
Having turned himself in to local police, McGregor is now facing three misdemeanor charges of assault and a felony charge of criminal mischief. McGregor has already faced his arraignment for the incident and made his $50,000 bail.
Now free to travel internationally, McGregor is not due back in court until June 14. That being said, TMZ has now reported that they do not believe the case will make it to trial.
“We now know it is likely, there is a very good chance, that there will be a plea bargain here.” The news source claimed. Check out the full report within the video below:
