Conor McGregor will not be serving jail time for his actions prior to UFC 223, and his travel visa will not be affected, clearing his way to resume his MMA career.
The former two-division UFC champ appeared in Brooklyn on Thursday morning, and pled guilty to one count of disorderly conduct. All the other felony charges have been dropped, and he won’t have a criminal record. As part of the plea deal, McGregor will only have to go through five days of community service, and one to three days of anger management evaluation.
McGregor was also required to pay restitution for the damage he inflicted on a UFC fighter bus, which he has already done. Three orders of protections were also served against McGregor, who will not be permitted near fellow fighters Ray Borg and Michael Chiesa until July 2020.
“I just want to say I’m thankful to the D.A. and the judge for allowing me to move forward,” McGregor said in a brief statement after.
