Dana White Sets New Date for Face-to-Face Conor McGregor Meeting

14 June 2018

Their presence sparked a melee and video footage emerged of the Dubliner throwing objects at a bus full of fighters after a news conference at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

Back in April during fight week of the UFC 223 pay-per-view event, McGregor and several members of his entourage made a decision to fly from Ireland to Brooklyn, New York to get revenge on current lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The meeting will follow the court hearing in which McGregor will answer three charges of misdemeanor assault and one count of felony criminal mischief.

McGregor has a hearing in a NY courtroom Thursday related to his alleged attack.

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.

On Wednesday, Japan's Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera pointedly said the drills played a "vital role in East Asia's security". Everyone had been wondering how much of his nuclear programme he'd be willing to put on the table to get that.

After the Brooklyn brawl, UFC President Dana White told ESPN's Brett Okamoto that McGregor's actions were "the most despicable thing in UFC history", which appeared to mean McGregor's time with the organization was on the outs.

McGregor was in Belfast at the weekend for a fight event at the SSE Arena.

"He and I are meeting on the 18 th of the month", White said.

At the hearing, it was revealed that McGregor's legal team and the prosecutor are still trying to iron out a plea agreement. I don't know whats gonna happen.

They are due back in court July 26.
