McGregor heads to court after UFC 223 melee

"I don't know what's going to happen", White told TMZ. White revealed they are due to meet on Monday.

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.

If the former New York prosecutors are correct, McGregor would be legally eligible to return to the Octagon in late 2018, which of course, would make the highly-anticipated showdown against UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov a possibility if negotiations are successful.

Though White generally has the inside track on most things involving McGregor, he admitted that he has no idea how his court case is going to unfold.

Since his last UFC, McGregor has competed inside a boxing ring against Floyd Mayweather, losing the fight on a 10th-round TKO.

Whether or not McGregor will fight again remains anybody's guess, though recent posts on social media suggest he's actively training.

Conor McGregor is due in a NY court on Thursday for a hearing on charges stemming from a disturbance at a UFC 223 media day in April.

McGregor was subsequently arrested, charged with three counts of assault, one of criminal mischief and released on bail.

Though seasoned trial attorney Bob Latham told that it was unlikely that McGregor would eventually be convicted of a felony or face jail time, he also warned that it is unlikely that Thursday's court appearance provides a resolution. I don't know what Conor and his team have worked on.
