Conor Mcgregor Legal Team Negotiating Plea Deal, New Court Date Set For July 26

Former two-division champion Conor Mcgregor made a brief appearance earlier this morning (Thurs., June 14, 2018) at Criminal Courthouse, to address charges related to bus rampage ahead of UFC 223 at the Barclays Center in April.

Mcgregor and his legal team informed the court that they are working on to negotiate a plea deal, so Irishman and his co-defendant Cian Cowley instructed to return for another hearing on July 26.

Afterward, a member of Mcgregor’s legal team read a statement:

“I regret my actions that led to today. I understand the seriousness of this matter and I’m hopeful this will get worked out. Thank you, everyone.”

“Today we’re here to focus on court, we’re not going to focus on any future plans until we handle this matter,” Attar said. ”Right now we’re in good negotiations with the district attorney, so we’re going to focus on that and we’ll focus on the future later.”

Mcgregor’s legal troubles began when Irishman hurl a metal trolley at a bus full of UFC fighters after a news conference. Ray Borg and Michael Chiesa, suffered injuries in the incident and were ultimately unable to compete that weekend.

McGregor and Cowley both were arrested by New York Police Department later that night and was released from custody after paying off respective amount of $50,000 and $25,000 bond and allowed to travel back to Ireland.

McGregor last competed in August 2017, when he made his professional boxing debut and lost the bout via 10th round stoppage to legendary Floyd Mayweather and reportedly took home hefty payday. The Irishman’s last Octagon outing was in November 2016, when he knocked out Eddie Alvarez to become the first man in UFC history to hold belts in two divisions simultaneously.

Mcgregor’s fighting future is still in the air until his next court appearance is settled.
