Mcgre­gor work­ing on plea agree­ment

Saskatoon StarPhoenix - - SPORTS -

Mixed mar­tial arts star Conor Mcgre­gor ex­pressed re­gret Thurs­day for a back­stage melee at a Brook­lyn, N.Y., arena and is in plea ne­go­ti­a­tions to re­solve charges in the case. The 29-yearold 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. 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. They are due back in court July 26.
