UFC megastar Conor McGregor had his big court date on Thursday, July 26. “Notorious” headed into court with a possible 12 charges against him following a fracas that took place in Brooklyn, New York on April 5.
Having landed a successful plea deal, “Notorious” ultimately plead guilty to a single charge of disorderly conduct. The fighter’s felony charges were dropped.
McGregor will not see jail time or have a criminal record because of the incident. Rather, the Ireland native will have to serve five days of community service, undertake 1-3 days of anger management evaluation and pay restitution for damages caused to a UFC bus.
Speaking to TSN, UFC President Dana White has come forward with his thoughts on McGregor’s sentence. Speaking on the possibility of McGregor facing any punitive measures from the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), White revealed that he has no interest in pursuing any punishment to the former two-division champion.
“Conor has faced a lot of repercussions,” White said. “Conor has lost a lot of money and a lot of time and yeah, Conor and I are good. We’re good.”
“There’s been a lot of time leading up to this, especially once we knew how this thing was gonna play out for him in New York. Yeah, I agree with what he said. We’re all in a good place.”
