Back in April, the Irish UFC champ and his entourage gatecrashed the UFC 223 media day in Brooklyn, New York, as they were allegedly looking for UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Dana White is set to meet with Conor McGregor later this month to discuss McGregor's future with the UFC.

"I don't know what's going to happen", White told TMZ.

McGregor was subsequently arrested, charged with three counts of assault, one of criminal mischief and released on bail.

At the hearing, it was revealed that McGregor's legal team and the prosecutor are still trying to iron out a plea agreement.

Of course, everything can change depending on what happens when McGregor appears in court on Thursday.

Their presence sparked a melee and video footage emerged of the Dubliner throwing objects at a bus full of fighters after a news conference at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

Though seasoned trial attorney Bob Latham told that it was unlikely that McGregor would eventually be convicted of a felony or face jail time, he also warned that it is unlikely that Thursday's court appearance provides a resolution.

Speaking outside the court, McGregor said: "I regret my actions that led me here today".

Conor McGregor hasn't fought inside the Octagon in nearly two years now, and many UFC fans have been wondering for some time now exactly when we'll see the former UFC Lightweight Champion fighting again.
