Conor McGregor to plea or contest assault charge on Nov. 1

DUBLIN — Conor McGregor appeared at Dublin District Court on Friday charged with the alleged punching of a man in a Dublin pub in April.

The proceedings were adjourned until Nov. 1 at the request of McGregor’s legal team.

The former double UFC champion presented himself at the Parkgate Street court shortly after 10.30 am to answer the charges. “The Notorious” faces a single assault charge, which carries a maximum prison term of six months or a €1,500 fine - or both - if convicted. A Garda investigation was launched after the alleged assault took place in the Marble Arch pub in Drimnagh, Dublin.
