Conor McGregor pleads guilty to disorderly conduct violation as part of deal

UFC star Conor McGregor pleaded guilty to a single violation of disorderly conduct in Brooklyn criminal court on Thursday, for his involvement in an incident on April 5 at Barclays Center. McGregor was given no jail time and will not have a criminal record.

McGregor was originally charged with two felonies, but those counts were dropped and he was ordered to not have contact with UFC fighters Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg, who were on the bus and injured by glass shards. "I want to say to my friends, my family, my fans, thank you for the support", McGregor said outside the courtroom after his sentencing.

Mr McGregor's lawyer, Bruce Maffeo, said today's sentence will have no impact on his client's immigration status and the timing and location of his community service will be decided by the District Attorney's office. He will also have to pay for the damages to the bus and complete an anger management course.

He hasn't fought for UFC since November 2016.

Conor McGregor pleaded guilty to a single count of disorderly conduct stemming from an April rampage at a United States sports arena, which may pave the way for the UFC's popular star to return to the venue before the end of the year. McGregor appeared once more inside the Kings County Courthouse in Brooklyn on Thursday.

McGregor and teammate, Cian Cowley both pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct.

Nurmagomedov was on the bus that McGregor attacked, and was the target of his hostility.
