Former UFC champion Conor McGregor accepted a deal with prosecutors Thursday that allows him to avoid jail time.

McGregor was arrested back in April after he and his entourage allegedly attacked a bus carrying fellow fighters at a pre-fight media day in New York City.

Prior to his plea deal, McGregor faced multiple charges — including two felony counts of criminal mischief. 

As part of the deal, McGregor pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and was ordered to complete five days of community service and attend up to three days of anger management classes.
