Looks like the Clown Prince of the UFC may have learned a sorely-needed lesson in humility. Unfortunately, the lesson master had to be a New York City judge.
Seemingly forgetting that nearly everyone on the planet has a cell camera, Ireland’s Conor “The Notorious” McGregor decided to violently flip-out at the Barclays Center, Brooklyn’s multi-purpose sports arena.
As reported by the New York Post, regardless of his wealth, McGregor is looing at some serious time in prison;
He was charged with felony criminal mischief and misdemeanor counts of assault, attempted assault, menacing and reckless endangerment. He faces as much as seven years in prison, if convicted.
McGregor said nothing in court except, “Yes, your honor” when asked whether he understood terms of the orders of protection against him – barring him from contacting fighters Michael Chiesa and Raymond Borg, who were hit with flying glass.
While the man punched identified as Jason Ledbetter, one of the two UFC fighters just may face a career-ending injury due to the shattered glass. Specifically, glass scratches to the eye;
Borg suffered a cornea abrasion to his left eye and bruising to his left cheek, while Chiesa had cuts to his face and hand – causing their bouts on Saturday night at the Barclays to be canceled.
It’s still unreported the extent of the glass-induced abrasions to Borg’s eye, but it’s a sure bet that glass to the eye is never a good thing.
