Conor McGregor’s Team Responds To Plea Deal Rumors: ‘There Is No Accuracy’

Yesterday news emerged that former two-division champion Conor Mcgregor is reportedly reaching a plea deal that could help the Irishman avoid jail time, deportation and have his punishment reduced from felonies to misdemeanors.

The issue stems from when McGregor attacked a UFC bus carrying fighters and employees back in April. A few, colleagues including Ray Borg and Michael Chiesa suffered injuries. Initially, Irishman was charged with one count of felony criminal mischief and three misdemeanor assault charges. Also, originally McGregor faced up to seven years in prison if he were convicted, but prosecutors seem to settle for probation and no jail time per the reported plea deal.

Now Mcgregor’s legal team issues a statement regarding plea deal rumors to the media on Sunday morning:

“There is no accuracy to recent tabloid reports speculating about a potential plea for Conor McGregor. We do not, and will not comment on any discussions we may or may not be having with the DA’s office.”

Whatever the truth lies in the original report, it is clear that McGregor’s legal team doesn’t want any unauthentic news to circulate in media. Mcgregor’s next court date is on July 26th, that will open all the truth, however, through initial reports it looks like he may avoid serious consequences.

McGregor hasn’t competed in the Octagon since winning the lightweight title from Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 back in 2016. McGregor then debuts in a highly anticipated boxing match with Floyd Mayweather. Currently, his MMA future remains in the air.
