McGregor in plea negotiations following bus melee

UFC star Conor Mc Gregor fronts US court expresses'regret over New York bus attack incident

Mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor has told of his regret for a backstage melee at a NY arena, and is in plea negotiations to resolve charges in the case. He remains on bail and is due back in court in two months. I understand the seriousness of the matter, and I am hopeful that it gets resolved soon.

Sources close to the UFC champion have confirmed that McGregor may not even have to go back to court as he hopes to fly back to NY city by July 17, more than a week before he is due back in a courtroom to face assault and criminal mischief charges.

Ireland's first UFC belt holder's legal team are now working on a plea deal with the Brooklyn District Attorney and he's due back in court on July 26.

McGregor arrived alongside teammate and cohort Cian Cowley for the bus attack that almost ruined an entire PPV back at UFC 223. He was charged with felony criminal mischief, as well as charges of assault, attempted assault, menacing and reckless endangerment.

Cowley, 25, was also charged with assault and criminal mischief. The fighters had just wrapped up a media-day event at the arena. But he and an entourage were let into the arena by someone affiliated with a credentialed website, UFC president Dana White has said.

White told TMZ Sports that he and McGregor will finally meet next week after the latter failed to show up in the previously scheduled meetings.

Nurmagomedov wasn't injured in the attack, and went on to defeat Al Iaquinta for UFC's lightweight title two days later.

An irate McGregor threw a dolly through one of the vehicle's windows, injuring Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg in the process.
