Conor McGregor is headed to the US on Tuesday for his court case

The big week is here where we get to find out what legal repercussions McGregor will face for his UFC 223 bus attack.

It’s been two months almost to the day since Conor McGregor and a gang of his friends stormed a loading dock in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, attacking a bus containing UFC 223 fighters. That behavior landed him in jail and resulted in three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief. On June 14th McGregor will return to a New York courtroom to face those charges, and according to his social media he’ll be back in the US this Tuesday.

His travel plans were revealed in a tweet celebrating SBG teammate Cian Cowley’s first round knockout win at BraveCF 13 in Belfast. Cowley also happens to be the other member of McGregor’s entourage facing criminal charges over the bus attack. If McGregor was worried about the repercussions of their actions in court, he didn’t show it.

”Jet leaves Tuesday my brother,” he wrote. “Have a good one!”

According to legal experts, McGregor could be looking at anything from jail time, a felony on his record, or nothing at all if a good plea deal is reached. If we were betting people, we would probably lean towards McGregor getting off with a slap on the hand. Funny how that seems to be the case when dealing with multi-millionaires, isn’t it? But in this case, we won’t complain too much about the state of the justice system. The sooner all this is behind us, the sooner it’s Khabib Time.
