Conor McGregor's potential legal ramifications explained by prosecutors
Conor McGregor’s bus attack at UFC 223 is now a thing of the past.
TMZ reported Friday that the former two-division UFC champion has completed his sentence after serving five days of community service and completing an anger management course. ESPN.com confirmed the news.
According to TMZ, which cited sources, McGregor “performed manual labor” at two different churches in the Brooklyn, N.Y. area. The report specified that the idea behind this approach was to not draw any extra attention to the situation. One source told TMZ that the staffs from both churches “all loved” McGregor, who also had a “long and meaningful conversation with a reverend” during his time there.
McGregor’s community service and anger management course was part of a plea deal he reached in July, which allowed him to avoid jail time for the rampage he went on during UFC 223 fight week.
After a media day for the April 2018 pay-per-view event ended, McGregor and his crew sought out Khabib Nurmagomedov (27-0 MMA, 11-0 UFC) as two fighter buses prepared to leave Barclays Center. McGregor was caught on video throwing a dolly through a window, which injured fighters Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg and ruled them out of separate fights.
McGregor’s actions were based in revenge against Nurmagomedov for roughing up his teammate, Artem Lobov, during a fight week confrontation at the host hotel. The Irish star and his teammates immediately fled the scene of the bus attack. UFC President Dana White called the incident the “most disgusting thing” in the promotion’s history. But he declined to punish the star, leaving the matter to police.
When McGregor and Nurmagomedov were booked for a showdown at UFC 229, video of the bus attack was front and center in promo reels.
