Conor McGregor appeared at Brooklyn Criminal Court today, and he was in and out in less than a minute.
The UFC star is facing three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief.
Conor’s next hearing has been set for July 26, as TMZ Sports has reported that the 29-year-old is working on a plea deal.
Speaking outside court today, Conor apologised for his actions by saying, “I regret my actions that led me here today. I understand the seriousness of this matter, and I am hopeful that it gets resolved soon. Thank you everyone.”

Back in April, the Irish UFC champ and his entourage gatecrashed the UFC 223 media day in Brooklyn, New York, as they were allegedly looking for UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
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.
Following the incident, Conor turned himself in to the New York police, and he was subsequently charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief for his actions.
If Conor is found guilty of any of the charges facing him, his much-anticipated return to the UFC Octagon will be further delayed, as his chances of re-entering the USA will be seriously affected.
