NEW YORK | MMA star McGregor says he regrets Brooklyn melee
NEW YORK (AP) — Mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor says he regrets getting into a backstage melee at a Brooklyn arena and hopes to have his U.S. court case resolved soon.
McGregor spoke outside court after a brief hearing Thursday.
A prosecutor said plea negotiations are ongoing.
The 29-year-old Irish fighter and co-defendant Cian (KEE’-uhn) Cowley remain free on bail.
Video footage showed McGregor hurling a hand truck at a bus full of fighters after a press conference for UFC 223 at Barclays Center in April.
