First, though, McGregor has a court hearing Thursday in Brooklyn, following his April rampage at Barclays Center that resulted in his arrest, as well as the cancellation of three fights on the UFC 223 card.

Conor McGregor in NY, leaving Brooklyn Supreme court in NY on June 14, 2018, stemming from his April attack on a bus at Barclays Center.

The Irishman, 29, made a brief appearance at Brooklyn Criminal Court on Thursday afternoon in NY, where the new date was set.

After learning that Khabib was on a bus about to leave, Conor reportedly threw a dolly through one of the bus' windows - leaving Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg with facial and eye injuries. With this development, McGregor is set to return to court on July 26, where he and Cowley's representation will enter said plea.

McGregor was mad because the league chose to strip him of his lightweight championship title, according the New York Post.

McGregor made a brief statement before the court and that was read out to the media members waiting outside.

A prosecutor said plea negotiations are ongoing. "I understand the seriousness of this matter and I'm hopeful that it gets resolved soon". White maintains that he has had no involvement in how the legal proceedings in McGregor's case have played out, adding, "Whatever happens tomorrow, I will be as shocked as you". The former champion, flanked by his teammates, including Artem Lobov and Cian Cowley, charged a bus holding UFC fighters and promotion personnel who were being escorted from a pre-fighter presser to the fighter hotel.

McGregor, from Dublin, has not fought in the UFC since 2016 when he beat Eddie Alvarez for the UFC Lightweight Championship. White will meet with McGregor on June 18 to discuss his future in the sport.
