It seems that the problems of Conor McGregor resulting from his attack on a bus with UFC fighters at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York will not be too serious. Former UFC champion Conor McGregor was scheduled to appear yesterday on June 14 in a court caused by three charges of assault and one criminal offense. McGregor commented on the social media date of the hearing, only that he intends to fly out to New York on Tuesday to face the accusations before the Thursday's hearing. According to the Business Insider report, law experts do not expect too severe a penalty imposed by the court on the Irishman. William Kephart, a former prosecutor from Long Island, told USA Today that McGregor's law situation is "just an ordinary case." In addition, Steven Raiser, another former New York prosecutor, told USA Today that the allegations were "not very serious." He added that "the good news for McGregor is that the most serious charge is the payment for property damage. Without previous criminal history, this penalty will be reduced as part of the charge. "
If former New York prosecutors are right, McGregor will be legally allowed to return to the Octagon at the end of 2018, which will of course make the long-awaited return and potential fight against the lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov possible (if the negotiations are successful).
