Mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor has told of his regret for a backstage melee at a NY arena, and is in plea negotiations to resolve charges in the case.

McGregor was released on $50,000 bail following his arrest over the frenzied attack on a bus of rival fighters that injured two athletes. I understand the seriousness of this matter and I am hopeful this will get worked out.

Mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor expressed regret to reporters Thursday over an attack on a bus of fellow fighters in NY two months ago, following a brief Brooklyn court appearance on charges relating to the incident.

Ultimate Fighting Championship president Dana White will be meeting former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor next week after the court hearing.

McGregor and Cowley were ordered to return to court on July 26.

Bad penalties that we gave away, bad discipline, a lot of things that we did wrong. So we'll work hard this week and look to get it right next week'.

Lobov said that Nurmagomedov wasn't a real champion because he had already pulled out of fights six times and McGregor has never pulled out of a fight, regardless of his injuries. The attack was caught on video and also showed Cowley allegedly hurling a chair at the bus and McGregor also attempting to throw a metal barricade to the vehicle before he was stopped.

His most serious charge - criminal mischief - carries with a maximum sentence of seven years imprisonment, but sources say no jail time is likely now that a plea deal is in the works.

McGregor, who was not on the UFC 223 card, was stripped of the lightweight title because of his long absence from UFC fights.

White said McGregor had "some sort of beef" with Nurmagomedov. The damage to the glass caused a laceration on UFC fighter Michael Chiesa's forehead.
