McGregor felony charges dismissed, given community service, anger management

Conor McGregor should be free to fight as soon as possible after felony charges were dismissed following the incident which saw a bus attacked on April 5th prior to UFC 223.

 

McGregor will instead serve five days of community service and attend anger management classes. His SBG teammate Cian Cowley was given the same sentence with McGregor agreeing to pay for the damage caused in the incident.

McGregor spoke to reporters after the incident; (Quotes from ESPN)

“I just want to say I’m thankful to the D.A. and the judge for allowing me to move forward,”

“I want to say to my friends, my family, my fans — thank you for your support.” McGregor said.
