Dana White Meeting With Conor McGregor Next Week About UFC Future

Dana White Meeting With Conor McGregor Next Week About UFC Future

Conor McGregor is due in a NY court on Thursday for a hearing on charges stemming from a disturbance at a UFC 223 media day in April.

Conor McGregor's future - in and out of the cage - got little resolution today.

"I don't know what's going to happen", White told TMZ.

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's expected to be joined in Brooklyn on Thursday by friend and co-defendant Cian Cowley.

The Irishman attacked a bus carrying several high profile fighters at the Barclays Centre in NY, breaking a window and injuring a couple.

White has recently begun talking about UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and McGregor expressing a strong interest in fighting each other, and it appeared he was leaning in that direction as well, but McGregor's legal entanglements could put pause on such a fight, depending upon how they play out. I don't know what Conor and his team have worked on. McGregor commented on the court date via social media, noting that he is going to be flying out to NY to face the charges on Tuesday, ahead of the court date on Thursday. McGregor is reportedly working on a plea deal that could see him avoid jail time. I don't know whats gonna happen. The judge set the next court date for July 26, 2018.
