The 30-year-old Irish fighter Thursday agreed to plead guilty to disorderly conduct.

Video showed what appeared to be McGregor hurling a hand truck at a bus full of fighters after a news conference for the UFC 223 event at Brooklyn's Barclays Center in April.

Two fighters hurt by broken glass were unable to compete.

A judge ordered McGregor to five days community service along with his immediate enrollment in an anger management course of one to three days.

McGregor is also expected to pay restitutions for damages made to the bus.
