Former UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor finally left New York City over the weekend, and not back to Ireland.


He and his band of brothers went down for some sun and fun in the Bahamas, because there's nothing like white sands and fruity adult beverages after your legal problems, according to TMZ.


Given that McGregor's apparently replaced his representation for those ongoing problems, maybe a reset was in order.

It is only a lesson if you learn from it. I learn everyday.

TMZ reports that they made contact with McGregor's bondsman, Ira Judelson, who confirmed that he did sign off on the fighter's travel plans, and also noted he's been "100% compliant" with the terms of his bail package.


McGregor is due back in court on June 14 for charges stemming from his assault a bus transporting UFC fighters at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The incident left at least two UFC competitors injured.
