Reduced charges, court date set
LightweightUFC
April 10, 2019
McGregor is now facing reduced charges of felony robbery (sudden snatch) and misdemeanor criminal mischief, and is next due to appear in court April 30, Marc Raimondi of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
McGregor had initially been facing more serious charges of strongarm robbery, but those charges were reduced this week, getting dropped from a second-degree to third-degree felony. During his April 30 court date, the state of Florida will determine whether or not to proceed with the case. If the two parties are unable to agree to a plea deal (which seems like the most likely outcome), a court date is tentatively scheduled for May 13. Surveilance video from the incident was also posted by MMA Junkie earlier Wednesday. It's difficult to determine what this might mean for McGregor's fighting career, as the former two-division champion tweeted his intention to retire from MMA back on March 25.

Tweets intention to retire
LightweightUFC
March 25, 2019
McGregor posted on his personal Twitter account that he has "decided to retire" from mixed martial arts.
ANALYSIS
It's tough to know just how serious the Tweet is given that he made a similar post in the past, but since it came from McGregor himself, it puts his future in the sport in question. McGregor's status will be updated again when more information is available.
Released on bail after arrest
LightweightUFC
March 11, 2019
McGregor was released on bail from a Miami-Dade County jail following his arrest Monday evening, Ariel Helwani of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
According to the Miami Herald, McGregor was charged with felony strong-armed robbery and criminal mischief after allegedly smashing a fan's phone and walking away with it. The original incident -- which occurred early Monday morning -- was caught on surveillance tapes outside the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel, and McGregor was later arrested at a Miami beach home. The former UFC champion's bond was set at $12,500 and a date for him to appear in court has yet to be set. McGregor is no stranger to run-ins with the law, but according to Helwani, his community service resulting from the dolly-throwing incident at the Barclays Center is complete, and the current situation will not have any implications for his plea deal in New York. As for his fighting career, McGregor is already serving a suspension that runs through April for his role in the post-fight brawl at UFC 229. The latest situation shouldn't greatly affect his ability to schedule a fight in the second quarter of 2019, as there have been other obstacles in the way of getting him back in the Octagon. He's been most recently linked to a lightweight fight against Donald Cerrone, but multiple reports have indicated those plans fell through due to a dispute over whether or not the non-title fight would be featured in the main event.
Handed six-month suspension
LightweightUFC
January 29, 2019
McGregor was suspended six months and fined $50,000 by the Nevada Athletic Commission on Tuesday for his actions in the post-fight brawl at UFC 229, Brett Okamoto of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
The suspension is backdated to the date of the incident, so McGregor will be eligible to fight again on April 6, though he does not have any official fights scheduled at this time. Khabib Nurmagomedov -- who jumped the cage after his victory in search of McGregor's teammate -- will be eligible to return on the same day, provided he agrees to take part in an anti-bullying PSA. This sets the stage for a potential rematch during International Fight Week, though it's unclear if this is the next step McGregor's management team will pursue. Multiple opponents have since called out McGregor, such as Donald Cerrone and Dustin Poirier, both of whom would be better stylistic matchups than Nurmagomedov.
Temporary suspension extended
LightweightUFC
October 24, 2018
McGregor's temporary suspension has been extended to Dec. 10 by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, Damon Martin of MMA Weekly reports.
ANALYSIS
McGregor and his UFC 229 opponent, Khabib Nurmagomedov, have each already been suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission due to their roles in the post-fight melee. McGregor will now be required to appear in person at a Dec. 10 hearing, at which point a final ruling will be decided. Since other states almost always tend to honor Nevada's decision, this means that neither McGregor or Nurmagomedov will be allowed to book a fight prior to that date. While it was Nurmagomedov that appeared to incite the post-fight situation, both fighters will be subject to fine and suspension.
Handed temporary suspension
LightweightUFC
October 11, 2018
McGregor will be temporarily suspended Monday for his post-fight antics following his loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 last weekend, Ariel Helwani of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
McGregor and Nurmagomedov have both been temporarily suspended the maximum 10 days by the Nevada Athletic Commission. There will be a hearing in Las Vegas on Oct. 24 during which the commission will vote whether to indefinitely suspend both fighters following the completion of their investigation.
