After a crazy 24 hours, Conor McGregor is now out on bail and free to return to Ireland should he desire to. His $50,000 bail was posted on Friday and his three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief will be set for a hearing on June 14, 2018.
McGregor and his crew were charged after he turned himself into police after he and his crew stormed Barclays Center on Thursday at the UFC 223 media day. He attacked a bus full of fighters and his actions removed three competitors from Saturday's show, changing the landscape of the pay-per-view. He was sentenced to appear in front of a judge on Friday where his bail was set.
According to MMA Fighting, Bellator fighter Dillon Danis posted the bail for both McGregor and Cian Cowley and both were released with video cameras and a vocal group of fans waiting.
A video by TMZ Sports showed McGregor being escorted by police to awaiting vehicles after his bail was posted.
Dana White was asked for comment and declined to elaborate on McGregor's future in UFC but did say McGregor would not be helped by UFC to get out of this jam, could likely go to jail and is going to be sued by more than one party, including potentially UFC (although White did not specifically state UFC would be suing).
While White wouldn't say what the plan of UFC was toward McGregor, he did say to TMZ Sports that rumors of the incident being staged or fake to drum up business for Saturday's show is "dumbest thing I've ever heard" and that the situation is 100 percent real.
If true, McGregor's bail is only the beginning of the many things he may have to do to get himself out of trouble. It appears McGregor's actions have finally caught up to him and UFC is no longer tolerating his behaviour.
