Conor McGregor not as cocky in court

MMA champion Conor McGregor was contrite after his brief appearance in Brooklyn court Thursday morning for allegedly attacking a bus full of fighters, saying he regrets his “actions that led to today.”

The Irish-born brawler arrived to Brooklyn Criminal Court in a tight-fitting dark blue suit, light blue shirt and matching tie and alongside his co-defendant and training partner Cian Cowley.

Their hearing lasted all of one minute.

Prosecutor Janet Gleeson said no grand jury action has been taken — meaning the two have not yet been indicted on felony criminal mischief charges.

McGregor and Cowley — who are both out on bail — emerged from the Jay Street courthouse to a crush of media.

“I regret my actions that led to today,” the former MMA featherweight and lightweight champion read from a prepared statement. “I understand the seriousness of this matter and I am hopeful this can get worked out. Thank you everyone.”

He and Cowley were then whisked away in a black Cadillac Escalade.

Their next court date is July 26.

McGregor flew into a rage at the Barclays Center and allegedly used a hand cart and other items to smash the windows of the packed bus.

The flying glass left two fighters — Michael Chiesa and Raymond Borg — injured. The 29-year-old hothead also allegedly pummeled another man, Jason Ledbetter.

McGregor was charged with felony criminal mischief and misdemeanor counts of assault, attempted assault, menacing and reckless endangerment.

Cowley faces similar charges.
