Conor McGregor accused of punching a security guard in Thursday's melee

Conor McGregor was advised to be on his best behaviour as his bail was set at a court hearing on Friday afternoon.

McGregor was granted bail of $50,000 and learned that he would be free to return to Ireland following his rampage through the Barclays Centre the previous day.

By now, we've all seen the footage of the chairs, guard rails and hand trucks that were sent crashing into the bus which held Khabib Nurmagomedov, the fighter targeted by McGregor's posse.

Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg both picked up injuries in the incident and neither will be allowed to compete at UFC 223 on Saturday night.

McGregor turned himself into New York Police Department's 78th precinct late on Thursday, where he was charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief.

The Irish UFC star sat in a Brooklyn courthouse on Friday afternoon alongside teammate Cian Cowley, who is charged with one count of misdemeanour assault and one count of criminal mischief.

It was during Friday's hearing that the full details of McGregor's accusations were disclosed.
