Conor McGregor Fined After Pleading Guilty To Assault

Conor McGregor has pleaded guilty to assault after appearing in court for the second time in relation to an incident at a Dublin pub earlier this year.

The MMA star has since been hit with a €1000 fine after footage of the assault was caught on CCTV.

He arrived at Dublin District Court shortly after 10 am. It was his second appearance in three weeks after being charged with the assault of Desmond Keogh at the Marble Arch pub, on Belbulben Road in Drimnagh in Dublin on 6 April.

According to RTÉ,  McGregor’s solicitor Michael Staines indicated to the court that the SBG fighter is set to plead guilty to the offence in question while state solicitor Stephanie Doyle informed the court that the victim did not wish to make a victim impact statement.

McGregor returned this afternoon to learn his fate with the two-weight world champion slapped with a €1000 fine. The court heard how the Dubliner had 18 previous convictions including several speeding violations and one other assault charge from 2009. The court also heard that McGregor has since apologised to the victim who has accepted.
