Cowley
, who was arrested along with Conor
McGregor
for his role in an attack an a bus carry UFC fighters
and employees last month ahead of UFC 223, has been booked for his
next fight.

According to reports from MMAUK.net and
MMAFighting.com
, Cowley will square off against Daniel

in a welterweight bout at Brave 13 in Dublin on June
9.

Cowley, one of McGregor’s training partners at SBG Ireland, was
charged with one count of criminal mischief in Brooklyn and is due
to return to court on June 14. McGregor is facing three counts of
assault and one count of criminal mischief after hurling a dolly
through the bus window, injuring fighters Michael
Chiesa
and Ray Borg as
well as a UFC employee.

McGregor and Cowley were part of a large group of fighters involved
in the incident, which is believed to be in response to a

and SBG Ireland’s Artem Lobov
earlier during UFC 223 fight week. Nurmagomedov was one of the
fighters on the bus.

Cowley is 0-1 as a professional after falling to David

Warrior” compiled a 3-1 mark as an amateur prior to his pro
debut.
