Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor is facing misdemeanor and felony charges for an incident in Brooklyn, New York that left multiple people injured. With that in mind, UFC President Dana White has come forward to reveal that he is set to meet “Notorious” this weekend to discuss the Ireland native’s fighting future.
On Thursday, April 5, a group of red corner fighters for UFC 223 were sitting in a bus within the Barclay Center’s loading dock in Brooklyn, New York. The bus was then allegedly attacked by Conor McGregor and a large entourage of individuals.
McGregor is now facing charges of assault and criminal mischief for the incident and is due back in court June 14. With that in, UFC President Dana White will be in Liverpool, England on Sunday, May 25, for UFC Fight Night 130.
Appearing on ESPN’s “SportsCenter,” White revealed that he will be meeting with McGregor to discuss the fighter’s future.
“We’re going to sit down and talk about his future and what’s next.”
“I have nothing to do with the legal issues, he’ll need to figure that out on his own.”
“Obviously, he has to deal with [his legal situation] in June. I’m flying to Liverpool this weekend for a fight there, and he and I are going to meet in Liverpool.”
