Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor appeared in a New York court this morning to bring closure to the UFC 223 Media Day incident in which he destroyed a bus and injured several people in the process. The UFC star plead guilty to a single violation of disorderly conduct and will not face any jail time, nor will he have any criminal record that would hinder his visa into the country.
McGregor was in and out of the Brooklyn court as swiftly as could be before the deal was reached. Mystic Mac was ordered to pay for damages to the bus but that has already been completed. He will also serve five days of community service and enter into an anger management program for 1-3 days.
Prior to the arranged deal, the former champoin faced a possible 12 criminal charges related to the incident, including two felony criminal mischief charges. Those charges carried a maximum sentence of seven years in prison. Fighters Ray Borg and Michael Chiesa were injured when McGregor threw a dolly through the window of the bus on April 5 at the Barclays Center. Orders of protection were continued today for both fighters.
McGregor has not fought for the UFC since November 2016 when he defeated Eddie Alvarez for the UFC lightweight title. He boxed Floyd Mayweather Jr. in August 2017 and reportedly earned upwards of $100 million.
Conor declined comment in the courtroom but spoke briefly once outside
