MMA star Mc­Gre­gor says he re­grets Brooklyn melee

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

NEW YORK - Mixed mar­tial arts star Conor Mc­Gre­gor ex­pressed re­gret on Thursday for a back­stage melee at a Brooklyn arena, and is in plea ne­go­ti­a­tions to re­solve charges in the case.

The 29-year-old Ir­ish fighter and co-de­fen­dant Cian Cow­ley re­mained free on bail af­ter a brief court ap­pear­ance.

As­sis­tant Dis­trict At­tor­ney Janet Glee­son said the case hasn’t been pre­sented to a grand jury for pos­si­ble in­dict­ment be­cause of the plea ne­go­ti­a­tions, sig­nalling in­ter­est from all sides in re­solv­ing the mat­ter swiftly. The men marched into court in tight blue suits, and passed a gallery packed with re­porters and other de­fen­dants wait­ing for their hear­ings. They stood and said lit­tle dur­ing the ap­pear­ance.
