Conor McGregor breaks silence after court hearing: I regret my actions

UFC president Dana White will have a face-to-face conversation next week with Conor McGregor following his arrest for attacking a bus carrying fighters out of an April pre-fight press event in Brooklyn.

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

McGregor surrendered to police the night of the attack, which seemed to be in connection with the UFC's decision to strip the Irish fighter of his title, which he's held since his last UFC fight in which he defeated Eddie Alvarez in November 2016.

"He and I are meeting on the 18th of this month", White told TMZ Sports on Wednesday.

McGregor has come out and said yesterday and today to various media outlets that he expects to be cleared on all charges.

An MMA journalist has released an alleged picture of McGregor's mugshot from his time in the NY jail when he was arrested. "I don't know what's gonna happen".

Reports in America are saying that McGregor is working on a plea deal as he could face seven years in prison for the incident. "Whatever happens (on Thursday), I will be as shocked as you".

The men were brought into court by an entourage, but after appearing inside for a short time, the presiding judge adjourned the matter until July 26.
