Breaking News: Conor McGregor released on $50k bail – court date set for June

Conor McGregor appeared in court this afternoon to face charges of assault and criminal mischief in connection to the events which unfolded last night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Bail for McGregor was set at $50,000 which was paid by his team mate Dillon Danis, who arrived at the court house to support his friend this morning.

Under the terms of his bail agreement, McGregor is free to leave the United States and travel without restriction. The Irishman must return to court on June 14th for the next hearing in the case. The 29-year-old Irishman left the courthouse following the hearing accompanied by his personal body guard.

Full video of this afternoons court hearing can be found below.

 

Criminal charges aside, the UFC lightweight champion will doubtless face further punishment from the New York State Athletic Commission and the UFC. This could potentially include fines, suspension, the stripping of his title, revocation of his fighting license and possibly even his release from the promotion who once held him in such high esteem.
