McGregor Strikes Plea Deal With Brooklyn DA
Conor McGregor has found a way out of his legal troubles, as the former UFC duel champion has struck a plea deal with Kings County Prosecutors.
McGregor would leave a Brooklyn Courtroom on Thursday, accepting a plea deal in which both of his felony counts would be dismissed, and plead guilty to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge.
McGregor, who joined by nearly a dozen associates, attacked a UFC bus on April 5th during the media day for UFC 223 at Barclays Center, was charged with one felony count of criminal mischief and three counts of misdemeanor assault.
Following the guilty plea on the misdemeanor, McGregor was sentenced to five days of community service, and ordered to complete an anger management course.
In a statement given outside the courhouse, McGregor would tell reporters that…
“I am thankful to the DA and the Judge for allowing me to move forward. I want to say to my friends, my family, my fans, thank you for your support.”
This is the optimal scenario for McGregor, who faced seven years in prison on the initial charges.
Thursday’s ruling opens the door for McGregor to return to the UFC this fall, most likely in a superfight against UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
