More from Fightline

Former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor made a brief appearance in a New York City courthouse Thursday.

McGregor, flanked by his legal team and fellow fighter Cian Cowley, informed the Kings County Supreme Criminal Court that a plan to negotiate is ongoing. The session was dismissed and a new hearing, set for July 26, was announced.

Dmitriy Shakhnevich, a New York-based lawyer, explained the move to FightLine in an exclusive interview.

“As expected, Conor’s team will be back in Court on July 26, likely to enter a plea,” he said. “It is not clear yet if Conor was indicted. But the DA has more time to do so. At this point, let’s see if a plea is entered on July 26. It likely will be.”
