McGregor will be in Brooklyn on Thursday for another court appearance regarding his arrest for the bus attack.

UFC President Dana White says he has a new meeting set up with Conor McGregor, who hasn't stepped foot in the cage since 2016. Or will White's meeting with McGregor get canceled again? "He and I are meeting on the 18th of this month", White told TMZ Sports.

White didn't specify a location this time around to TMZ.

McGregor and his co-defendant, UFC fighter Cain Cowley, could find out whether they will be indicted for the backstage melee in April. The last time McGregor took part in a combat sports event was for his loss to Floyd Mayweather in their boxing match last August.

Video showed what appeared to be McGregor hurling a trolley at a bus full of fighters after a news conference for the UFC 223 event at Barclays Centre in April.

Conor and Cian Cowley will both be in court on Thursday 14th, with legal experts believing the charges are "not serious" enough to land the Forbes rich list alumni with any jail time.

White isn't sure what to expect. I don't know whats gonna happen. "I'm pretty confident [a lightweight title fight] is a fight that Conor wants, and I'm pretty confident that is a fight Khabib wants. Whatever happens tomorrow, I will be as shocked as you".
