NEW YORK (AP) - Mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor is in plea negotiations to resolve charges stemming from a backstage melee at a Brooklyn arena.
The 29-year-old Irish fighter and co-defendant Cian (KEE'-uhn) Cowley remained free on bail after a brief court appearance on Thursday.
They are due back in court July 26.
A prosecutor said plea negotiations are ongoing.
Video footage showed McGregor hurling a hand truck at a bus full of fighters after a press conference for UFC 223 at Barclays Center in April.
Fighters Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg were injured by shattered glass and unable to compete.
