UFC superstar Conor McGregor has accepted a plea deal in relation to his part in an attack on a bus filled with fighters just days prior to UFC 223 in New York City back in April.
McGregor plead guilty to one charge of disorderly conduct, which will result in him being forced to undergo five days of community service and 1-3 days of anger management evaluation.
‘The Notorious’ will have to also pay restitution to the bus company as a result of the damage caused when he threw a steel dolly through the window of the vehicle, while McGregor is also not allowed to go near the two UFC Fighters injured in the incident – Ray Borg and Michael Chiesa – until July of 2020.
As a result of McGregor’s plea deal, all felony charges against him have now been dropped and he won’t have a criminal record.
Importantly, McGregor has also avoided any issue with his travel Visa, and that means that he and the UFC can now get their heads together and establish when and where his next fight in the Octagon will take place.
As for the likely opponent, the obvious frontrunner is sure to be new lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov – who it just so happens was the intended target of the attack on the fighter bus back in April.
