Conor McGregor has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct as part of a deal with prosecutors to avoid jail time, as reported by the BBC.

McGregor was arrested in April and was facing 12 criminal charges after attacking a bus containing UFC fighters at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. Two fighters were injured in the incident and forced to withdraw from scheduled matches.

The deal requires McGregor to have anger management treatment and do five days of community service, after which he will be cleared of criminal charges. The deal doesn't affect his US work visa. Of the charges the fighter had been facing, including menacing, assault resulting in injury, reckless endangerment, and criminal mischief, the most serious carried a maximum sentence of seven years.

In a statement outside New York's Kings County Supreme Criminal Courthouse, McGregor thanked the prosecutors and judge "for allowing me to move forward." McGregor's manager Audie Attar also gave a statement outside the court: "Conor's been training. He's in shape. He's ready to go. Now it's just about getting back to business and we hope to have some news to announce very soon."

McGregor's SBG Ireland teammate Cian Cowley also pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct for his part in the incident.
