McGregor gets community service after striking deal

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

UFC Star Conor McGregor has avoided jail time in New York City after making a deal at Thursday’s hearing. Instead of going to jail, he has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and will serve community service.

In April, McGregor — who then UFC president Dana White said would never fight in his Octagon again — was so enraged after an incident with his teammate. The incident happened in the UFC hotel between his teammate and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Whatever was said between the two caused McGregor to fly from Ireland to New York. He then was led into the Barclays Center before the UFC 223 pay-per-view.

All heck broke loose after that as McGregor and his Mac Life publication people — who helped him sneak into the arena — attempted to get their hands on Nurmagomedov. During the chaos, McGregor threw an object onto a bus that had Nurmagomedov and other UFC fighters on it.

The object broke class and caused Michael Chiesa to miss his scheduled fight.

McGregor was arrested that night and released the next day. He met with a judge in June.

Back to the UFC, White is attempting to book McGregor vs. Nurmagomedov. After the incident in April, Nurmagomedov seemed to want to fight McGregor.

The Ireland native has not fought in the UFC since November 2016 in New York City at Madison Square Garden. He defeated Eddie Alvarez to become the first two division UFC Champion in UFC history.
