Conor’s Manager Comes Forward After Court Hearing, “we hope to have some news to announce very soon”

UFC megastar Conor McGregor had his day in court on July 26. While “Notorious” had the potential of facing 12 different charges, McGregor’s felony charges were ultimately dropped and the Ireland native locked in a plea deal by pleading guilty to one count of disorderly conduct.

McGregor will not see jail time or have a criminal record of the incident, with the fighter’s visa also having been unaffected. Rather, “Notorious” has been sentenced to a 1-3 day anger management evaluation, five days of community service and must pay restitution to a fighter injured in the fracas.

McGregor’s court appearance was brought on by a fracas that took place in Brooklyn, New York on April 5. A large entourage was led by McGregor backstage of the Barclays Center, in which the group then allegedly attacked a UFC buss filled with fighters.

Speaking to media after the court hearing, Conor McGregor offered a few words.

“I just want to say I’m thankful to the DA and the judge for allowing me to move forward. I want to say to my friends, my family, my fans, thank you for the support. Thank you.”

McGregor’s manager Audie Attar has since offered a statement as well.

“I want to say thank you to the court. Now that this has passed us, we can focus on things that have been on hold for some time. Conor’s been training, he’s in shape, he’s ready to go. So now it’s just about getting back to business, and we hope to have some news to announce very soon.”
