McGregor in plea negotiations following bus melee

Conor Mc Gregor Fight UFC

The UFC superstar appeared in front of a NY judge on Friday (AEST) after he was charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief.

Irish mixed martial arts superstar Conor McGregor made a brief court appearance on Thursday (Friday in Manila) stemming from his role in a loading dock melee and later expressed "regret" for his actions.

Conor McGregor was silent as he left the Kings County Court in Brooklyn, New York, on Thursday.

"I regret my actions that led me here today", McGregor stated outside the court afterwards.

McGregor cheered the 25-year-old Cowley on Saturday as he fought in Belfast, and they flew to the United States together on a private jet for the hearing. I understand the seriousness of this matter and I am hopeful this will get worked out. They have been free on bail since shortly after the incident, and have been allowed to travel to their native Ireland.

McGregor was ordered back in court on July 26.


McGregor arrived alongside teammate and cohort Cian Cowley for the bus attack that almost ruined an entire PPV back at UFC 223.

McGregor is accused of throwing something through the window of the bus, according to an NYPD source with knowledge of the event.

Cowley, 25, was also charged with assault and criminal mischief.

McGregor's heartfelt apology came a few hours after UFC president Dana White revealed he'll rendezvous with the Irishman next week. The damage to the glass caused a laceration on UFC fighter Michael Chiesa's forehead.

White told TMZ Sports that he and McGregor will finally meet next week after the latter failed to show up in the previously scheduled meetings.
