We still don’t know what’s to come of Conor McGregor’s criminal court case. But we do know this: the UFC superstar is seeking a plea deal. Thursday, McGregor would have a brief court hearing at Kings County Supreme Courthouse in Brooklyn due to his actions at UFC 223’s media day. Not only that, but he would genuinely express regret for his actions. Of course, what else is he going to do? ‘The Notorious’ went ballistic that day, causing plenty of damage and costing the promotion three separate fights. And there’s also plenty of video footage to back this up.
Per ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, though, he has regrets.
“I regret my actions that led to today,” McGregor starts… But we’re going to stop him right there. Does he, though? Does he really regret his actions. After all, it ended up being just another way for the Irishman to stay relevant in the UFC despite the fact that he hasn’t fought for the promotion since November 2016. Plus, it’s not as though any type of severe punishment is going to be handed down to him. The UFC isn’t going to suspend or fire him. He makes President Dana White and company too much money. But he continues…
“I understand the seriousness of this matter and I am hopeful this will get worked out.”
As sit stands, McGregor is facing 12 charges. Two of them include misdemeanor assault while one other is for felony criminal mischief. In the meantime, he and White will meet to discuss things on June 18. But his next court date isn’t until July 26. McGregor currently holds a 21-3 MMA record, with his only UFC loss coming at the hands of Nate Diaz on March 5, 2016. And yes, technically McGregor isn’t out of the woods quite yet. But since when has that ever mattered?
