Conor McGregor due back court after Barclays backstage brawl

Conor McGregor due back court after Barclays backstage brawl

Spoke briefly to Conor McGregor's manager @AudieAttar outside the courthouse about today's hearing and what's next in terms of the negotiations with the UFC.

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

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.

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.

He's expected to be joined in Brooklyn on Thursday by friend and co-defendant Cian Cowley. UFC fighter Michael Chiesa suffered a facial laceration, while fellow fighter Ray Borg suffered a corneal abrasion in the melee.

Apple to undercut popular law enforcement tool for cracking iPhones
It's official: Apple will implement an iOS feature created to block iPhone unlocking tools that use the Lightning port. Apple said it was working a fix to mitigate the possibility of accessing data from GrayKey or similar tools.

Bystander video showed McGregor, who was in a loading area of the Barclays Center with his entourage, appearing to throw a dolly at the window of the departing bus.

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

If the former New York prosecutors are correct, McGregor would be legally eligible to return to the Octagon in late 2018, which of course, would make the highly-anticipated showdown against UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov a possibility if negotiations are successful. I don't know what Conor and his team have worked on.

"I don't know what's going to happen", White said about the hearing. White revealed they are due to meet on Monday.
