McGregor, clad in a tight, blue pinstripe suit, was joined in court by his 25-year-old friend, fellow fighter, Irish citizen and co-defendant Cian Cowley, who was sentenced to three days of community service and anger management. In exchange for pleading guilty to a single count of disorderly conduct, he agreed to five days' community service, up to three days of anger-management course, restitution to the bus company whose property he damaged, and a no contact order to three people affected by his actions. The plea will not affect his U.S. work visa.
McGregor pleaded guilty to a reduced disorderly conduct charge, with prosecutors dropping the two felonies and related charges that he was facing.
Ray Borg and Michael Chiesea, two of the fighters who were forced out of planned fights during that event, have a restraining order against McGregor until July 2020.
Video footage appeared to show McGregor and his entourage in an underground auto park smashing windows on a bus filled with UFC fighters who were at the Barclays Centre Arena in Brooklyn to publicise a UFC event.
Following the verdict, McGregor issued a brief statement to the media.

The incident and legal problems that came from a bus attack months ago are finally behind former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor.
The UFC took away the title after McGregor decided not to defend it in favor of taking a highly lucrative boxing match against the undefeated Floyd Mayweather. The window shattered and injured Borg and Chiesa, necessitating their removal from the UFC 223 fight card.
He is expected to return to UFC against current lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
