Conor McGregor pleads guilty to disorderly conduct charge

Jack O'Toole


Conor McGregor has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and has been been forced to pay for damages after he was charged with criminal mischief, misdemeanor assault and menacing and reckless endangerment by the NYPD after an incident at a UFC 223 media day in Brooklyn.

The Dubliner has been sentenced to five days community service,  and will not have any criminal offences included on his criminal record.

Video footage appeared to show the former UFC Featherweight and Lightweight champion throwing a railing at a bus full of fellow fighters.

UFC fighters Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg were both injured from the incident and were forced to withdraw from their respective bouts at UFC 223.

McGregor was initially summoned to court last month alongside fellow defendant Cian Cowley (charged with one count of misdemeanour assault and one count of criminal mischief ) but their case was adjourned until July 26th.
