Conor McGregor handed community service after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct

"I just want to say that I am thankful to the DA and the judge for allowing me to move forward", he said.

McGregor's plea was part of a negotiated deal between his legal team and the district attorney's office, which dropped two felony charges and several misdemeanor charges against him. Prosecutors said he's already paid to fix the bus.

Two fighters were injured by flying glass during the attack and were forced to pull out of a UFC event the following weekend. The ruling means that McGregor will not be handed a criminal record, nor will it restrict his ability to travel to the US.

At the time of the brawl, McGregor was angry that the UFC had stripped him of the lightweight title, according his Twitter posts.

McGregor, 30, was charged with assault, criminal mischief and other crimes for his role in the altercation.

McGregor and co-defendant Cian Cowley made a brief appearance at court in Brooklyn in June and remained free on bail until Thursday's hearing.

Shortly after the interview, Nurmagomedov took to a href="Nurmagomedov's proposed date falls one month after the October 6 date - UFC 229 - that's been heavily rumored to host a showdown between Nurmagomedov and McGregor, who was stripped of the UFC lightweight title when Nurmagomedov beat Al Iaquinta at UFC 223". "I want to say to my friends, my family, and my fans - thank you for the support".

McGregor hasn't fought since his marquee boxing match against Floyd Mayweather in August of past year.

He is expected to return to UFC against current lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. It stems from an incident caught on camera, where McGregor is accused of throwing a hand-truck into a bus.

Orders of protection also were given for MMA fighters Ray Borg, Jason Ledbetter and Michael Chiesa. Nurmagomedov was on the bus that McGregor attacked, and was the target of the Irish star's actions.
