McGregor and his teammate Cian Cowley appeared in court with McGregor facing three counts of assault and one for criminal mischief.


The judge ordered a $50,000 bail to be set on McGregor, which would allow him to leave the country if it was posted. McGregor is scheduled to return for a hearing on Thursday, June 14th. Bail was set at $25,000 for Cowley.

McGregor led a group into the Barclays Center after media day and began throwing objects at the fighter bus, including a barricade and chairs. The attack led to glass shattering and injuring fighters Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg, who have both been taken off the UFC 223 card.

The UFC has also removed McGregor’s teammate Artem Lobov from the card due to his participation in the incident.
