Conor McGregor pokes fun at his bus rampage as MMA star jets off to New York for court hearing

The UFC brawler and his co-accused mate Cian Cowley were seen arriving at Dublin airport yesterday after being charged with assault in April.

Conor and fellow pro-fighter pal were involved in a vicious melee at the Barclays Center in New York two months ago.

Cian, 25, picked up a win at the Brave 13 MMA event in Belfast earlier this week, earning him his first professional victory.

McGregor congratulated his young protégé after the win and made light of his ongoing legal situation.

He tweeted: “Congrats @CianCowley from the cells to the stadiums. Not a scratch. They done nothing.

“Jet leaves Tuesday my brother have a good one #Animal”.

Conor was charged three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief after attacking the bus of rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.

His Straight Blast Gym team mate was charged with one count of assault and one count of criminal mischief.

The Notorious and Cian– who were released on bail after their New York meltdown – are due back in court on Thursday.

Conor, who is worth an estimated $100 million, posted a snap on Instagram showing the pair and their sons beside a private jet at Dublin Airport yesterday.

The 29-year-old dad-of-one didn’t post a caption with the image.

Boxer Amir Khan also offered McGregor some encouragement ahead of his court date.

The Bolton-born fighter posted a message of support on Instagram alongside a video of himself with Conor on Sunday.

He wrote: “Lovely to see the champ in Belfast. All the best with the court case in US.”

Earlier this month, Forbes magazine named Conor the fourth highest-paid athlete following his mega-fight last summer with boxer Floyd Mayweather.
