News: Conor McGregor appears in court in Brooklyn

A little over 2 months after wreaking havoc at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, Conor McGregor has today made his second appearance at Kings County Supreme Criminal Court, Brooklyn.

McGregor initially appeared in court on April 6th alongside SGB teammate Cian Cowley to answer to three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief. Both fighters were released after each posted $50,000 bail.

Both McGregor and Cowley entered the court room at approximately 3pm UK time with the hearing lasting just a couple of minutes.

Following his brief appearance in court, McGregor issued a statement via his legal team to the press assembled outside the building.

Reports are circulating suggesting that the former two weight UFC champion is expected to strike a plea deal over the coming weeks.

Following the completion of todays business in court, McGregor will be meeting with UFC president Dana White on Monday to discuss the 29-year-olds future with the promotion. White has stated on multiple occasions that any potential internal discipline for his actions in Brooklyn wouldn’t be considered until the legal process has been completed.
