Conor’s Plea May Include Work with Inner-City Youth
Former UFC champion Conor McGregor has been in talks with New York’s Police Athletic League to help inner-city youth as part of his plea deal to avoid jail time.
McGregor is in plea negotiations, with his next date in court scheduled for July 26. The idea to help disadvantaged youth reportedly is McGregor’s own, and he says he wants to show his regret for his actions and that he can be a role model.
According to one source, “He wants to give back and this is the best way he can do that.”
McGregor is facing charges of assault and criminal mischief for an April attack in the days leading up to UFC 223. McGregor threw a hand dolly at a bus that was transporting fighters — one of whom being his longtime rival, Khabib Nurmagomedov. While Nurmagomedov was not injured in the attack, a couple of fighters scheduled for UFC 223 were forced to withdraw.
New York’s Police Athletic League “provides sporting activities and more to kids from disadvantaged backgrounds.”
