Months after he threw a metal dolly through a bus window injuring several UFC fighters that were later removed from the card, Conor McGregor's legal troubles stemming from that incident came to a close Thursday in a New York courtroom.

The former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion agreed to a plea deal that will see him serve no jail time, nor a criminal record.

In a deal to have all felonies dismissed, he pled guilty to one count of disorderly conduct and will have to commit five days of community service, between one to three days of anger management evaluations, and will have to pay restitiution damages for the bus he threw the dolly through.

Three orders of protection, including ones by UFC fighters Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg, will still stand through July 2020.

McGregor's visa is unaffected by the agreement, meaning there are no legal restrictions preventing him from fighting in the UFC.

McGregor's teammate Cian Cowley, who was part of the April 4th melee along with a large entourage, also pled guilty to one count of disorderly conduct and will have to do five days of community service.
