NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Former UFC champion Conor McGregor pleaded guilty on Thursday in connection with an April attack on a bus at the Barclays Center.

According to Reuters, McGregor pleaded guilty to one count of disorderly conduct in the attack, as part of a plea deal negotiated between his legal team and the district attorney’s office.

Two felony charges several misdemeanor charges were dropped as a part of the agreement. McGregor was sentenced to five days of community service, completion of an anger-management class, and the judge ordered that he pay restitution in the attack.

McGregor will serve no jail time and if he completes the terms of his probation, he will not have a criminal record, which could have been an issue for him as he is an Irish citizen.

Reuters also reported that the judge served three protective orders against McGregor, barring him from being near fighters Ray Borg and Michael Chiesa, who were injured in the attack until 2020.

The charges against McGregor stemmed from an incident which occurred on April fifth, following UFC 223 Media Day at the Barclays Center. Video of the incident captured McGregor, and several other men charging into a loading dock at the arena where they began to attack a bus holding numerous MMA fighters.

During the attack, McGregor threw a hand truck at the bus, shattering a window and injuring several occupants on board.

After the sentencing, McGregor appeared outside of the courthouse, where he made a brief statement.

“I just want to say that I am thankful to the DA and the judge for allowing me to move forward,” he said. “I want to say to my friends, my family, and my fans, thank you for your support.”
