McGregor's lawyer, Jim Walden, said there was no risk that McGregor would try to avoid coming back to court: "He's the most visible face on the planet". His bail was set at US$50,000, but his passport will not be seized by USA authorities and he will be allowed to fly back to his native Ireland. Originally, the bout was expected to take place at UFC 224 in Brazil, but officials chose to keep it in the USA after the incident involving McGregor due to Covington's past comments concerning the Brazilian people.

"It was probably the worst conversation we ever had", White told FS1's First Things First on Friday.

He took time off to await the birth of his son, Conor Jack, and lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr.in his professional boxing debut last August. According to White, the UFC was targeting a September return for the now-former champion, but with McGregor's legal status up in the air, he is now completely uncertain.
