Conor McGregor returns to social media as he continues to roam the NYC streets

Former lightweight champion Conor McGregor apparently enjoys New York City enough to hang around for a few more days, even after he was allowed to fly back on his private plane to Ireland.

Former UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor is still mobbin' around with his crew of Irish friends.  

 

He reportedly left the upscale Loews Regency in NYC with his boys, including Cian Crowley, the person who was arrested with Conor on Thursday, for attacking a transport bus full of UFC fighters and personnel at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, according to TMZ.

McGregor made sure to commemorate the show of force of himself and his gang hitting the rainy New York streets on his Instagram. His continued stay in the Big Apple is surprising, given his new legal situation that had temporarily grounded the star, and prevented him from flying back to Dublin. 

 

Out on $50,000 bail, McGregor's due in court in June. As he's not considered a flight risk, the judge is allowing him to move freely with check-ins to his bail bondsman. 

He came into the Barclays Center, attacked our fighters and attacked my staff, No, you don't get my help on this one.

McGregor was hit with multiple charges, including three counts of misdemeanor assault and one count of felony criminal mischief, for his infamous attack on a transport bus holding nearly the entire UFC 223 card. It's widely thought that he and his friends had come to NYC to defend the honor of fighter Artem Lobov, who'd gotten into a confrontation with new lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

 

The 29-year-old threw a hand dolly through a window that caused serious lacerations to Michael Chiesa's face.
