Troublemaking UFC star Conor McGregor will walk out of a Brooklyn courthouse Friday after posting $50,000 bail for his alleged wild attack on a busload of fellow fighters.
The bail was set at a Brooklyn court hearing where the Irish mixed martial arts champion arrived one day after surrendering for his alleged role in a melee inside the Barclays Center.
McGregor will keep his passport and travel between Brooklyn and Dublin as the case proceeds under terms of his release. Supreme Court Justice Mallafre Melendez also issued orders of protection to keep McGregor away from five people injured in the attack where punches were thrown and a metal hand truck flung at a bus.
“Yes, your honor,” said McGregor when asked if he understood the details of the orders.
McGregor’s alleged partner-in-crime Cian Cowley was released on a $25,000 bail package on charges of criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and assault.
Both men spent the night in jail after surrendering to the NYPD for the insane brawl inside the Barclays Center, home to a Saturday night UFC card.
A crowd of about 50 McGregor fans gathered outside the courthouse awaiting his release.
