UFC’s biggest superstar is all set to get back into the octagon as he has been cleared of all the felony charges for his involvement in an incident on April 5 at Barclays Center.
McGregor entered the plea as part of a deal worked out with the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office. The settlement includes no jail time for the Irishman and it will not affect his travel visa. Prior to the deal, McGregor had faced a possible 12 criminal charges related to the incident, including two felony criminal mischief charges. Those charges carried a maximum sentence of seven years in prison.
