Conor McGregor is reportedly being lined up for a plea deal that will allow him to fight in the U.S. 1 year ago

Conor McGregor is reportedly being lined up for a plea deal that will allow him to fight in the U.S.

McGregor is due back in court on Thursday 26 July.

It has been a busy couple of days from 'The Notorious' in the week leading up to the future of his career in the UFC.

In the last two weeks alone, he has:

ONE Bought a life-size statue of himself to celebrate his 30th birthday

TWO Announced he and his girlfriend Dee Devlin are expecting their second child

THREE Got absolutely mobbed by fans at Longitude

FOUR Was invited to watch the World Cup Final in Russia by President Putin, who he then referred to as "one of the greatest leaders of our time"

In terms of living life via headlines, only Trump has McGregor beat.

Still though, this Thursday will see 'The Champ Champ' return to the Brooklyn Criminal Court to face the eventual charges of the Bus Attack that took place back in April.

There had been some mild concerns that McGregor would face some of the harsher punishments, which includes several years in prison, as a way of making an example of him, but it looks a plea deal is about to be made.

As per the report via TMZ:

'McGregor was charged with one count of felony criminal mischief and 3 counts of misdemeanor assault.

'Sources familiar with the deal tell us, prosecutors have agreed to reduce the felony to a misdemeanor. That's hugely significant because a felony involving violence could trigger permanent deportation from the U.S.'

Should the court accept this plea deal, then McGregor will not be barred from the States, and we imagine his return to the ring will occur sooner rather than later, if his latest Instagram posts are anything to go by...
