Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor was involved in a fracas within the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York back on April 5. A large entourage led by “Notorious” attacked a UFC charter bus in the center’s loading dock.
From there, Conor McGregor allegedly threw a hand truck into one of the windows of the charter bus. Multiple individuals were injured in the incident.
The Ireland native had his day in court back on July 26. While McGregor was facing upwards of a dozen criminal charges, the former two-division champion ultimately struck a plea deal after pleading guilty to one misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct.
McGregor will see no jail time, suffer any marks on his criminal record or have any complications with his visa. Rather, “Notorious” must complete five days of community service, 1-3 days of anger management evaluation and pay restitution for the damaged UFC bus.
Speaking to TMZ Sports, UFC President Dana White revealed that no punitive measures will be taken by the promotion against Conor McGregor following the incident.
“Obviously, I’ve been telling you guys forever we had to wait until Conor’s stuff was handled in New York. [That] got done. It was very favorable for Conor. Time to roll.”
“Suspended? He hasn’t fought in 2 years. How much longer should we suspend him?”
“He’s obviously lost lots of money. Millions of dollars in what went down in New York. What more could we do to him? He went through the legal process and got what he got. That’s it!”
Conor McGregor is now set to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov in the main event of UFC 229 on Oct. 6 in Las Vegas.
