Irish MMA star Conor McGregor appeared in a Dublin court for the attack on an old man back in April.
The 31-year-old sat quietly at the back while his representative asked case to be adjourned until 1 November pending the disclosure of evidence. A policeman told the court that included CCTV footage. Judge Marie Keane accepted that and asked MMA star to appear again in three weeks’ time and then he would be asked to enter a plea or seek a date for the case to be heard.
McGregor was charged in a separate case in April 2018 with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief after police said he attacked a charter bus in New York carrying UFC fighters.
He pleaded guilty to a reduced disorderly conduct charge in that case.
McGregor has not fought since losing his UFC lightweight title to Khabib Nurmagomedov a year ago this week. He announced his ‘retirement from MMA’ in March.
