Conor McGregor breaks silence after court hearing: I regret my actions

The former UFC lightweight champion appeared at Kings County Criminal Court in Brooklyn, New York earlier afternoon charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief for his actions at the UFC 223 media day.

The charges were levelled McGregor’s way after he and his entourage attacked a bus at the Barclays Center, with the s poster boy throwing a dolly through one of its windows.

McGregor’s antics left his fellow fighters Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg with facial and eye injuries respectively and forced them to withdraw from the third pay-per-view card of the year.

McGregor, who hasn’t fought in the UFC since in over 19 months, appeared before a judge with his accomplice Cian Cowley.

McGregor, Ireland’s first belt holder, and Cowley will return to court on July 26.

The UFC’s cash cow hasn’t set foot inside the Octagon since his historic UFC 205 victory over Eddie Alvarez, a triumph which saw him become the promotion’s first simultaneous two-weight world champion.

McGregor will meet with UFC president Dana White later this month discuss his antics at the UFC 223 media day.

 

”He and I are meeting on the 18th of this month,” White told TMZ.

“I don’t know whats gonna happen,” White added when asked if McGregor’s next fight would be a topic of discussion. I don’t know what Conor has planned.

“I don’t know what Conor and his team have worked on.”
