Conor McGregor appeared in a Brooklyn court yesterday in relation to the two felony assault charges that were laid against him after an attack on a bus filled fight UFC fighters on April 5th just days prior to UFC 223.

However, yesterday’s appearance was brief, with a new court date of July 26th being set, giving McGregor’s legal team more time to work on a plea deal with the district attorney’s office.

“I regret my actions that led me here today,” McGregor stated outside the court afterwards. “I understand the seriousness of this matter, and I’m hopeful it gets resolved soon.”

McGregor’s manager Audi Attar also spoke out, confirming that they were looking into the possibility of establishing a plea deal in relation to the incident, which saw McGregor throw a steel dolly through one of the windows of the bus.

“Today, we were here to focus on court, we’re not going to focus on any future plans until we handle this matter,” Attar told MMAfighting.com. “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.”

Despite being further pressed on what McGregor plans to do next, Attar wouldn’t be drawn on what might be in the pipeline.

“We’re going to keep all that right now on the back burner and really focus on this matter only. We’ll focus on all that at a later time.”
