Conor McGregor will appear in Brooklyn Criminal Court on Thursday.

UFC superstar Conor McGregor is set to appear in court in NY on Thursday to answer for his bus attack at UFC 223.

Speaking to TMZ Sports, White revealed that he is going to be meeting up with McGregor on June 18, which is next Monday, but the location of their meet was not disclosed.

Following the UFC 223 event, video footage emerged on social media of McGregor and his entourage storming into the Barclays Center in NY and making their presence felt. "I don't know what Conor and his team have worked on", White told TMZ Sports.

McGregor, who hasn't had an MMA fight since November 2016, was stripped of the UFC lightweight title following new champ Khabib Nurmagomedov's victory in April at UFC 223 in Brooklyn.

Conor McGregor hasn't fought inside the Octagon in nearly two years now, and many UFC fans have been wondering for some time now exactly when we'll see the former UFC Lightweight Champion fighting again.

McGregor was subsequently arrested, charged with three counts of assault, one of criminal mischief and released on bail.

White and McGregor were initially set to meet at UFC Fight Night 130 in Liverpool, England, in late May, but that meeting never took place. McGregor's lawyer didn't return a message.
