Conor McGregor has arrived at a NY court to face three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief.

Joining McGregor in the Brooklyn court will be friend and co-defendant Cian Cowley, who was charged with one count of assault and one count of criminal mischief.

McGregor spoke outside court after a brief hearing Thursday.

Though seasoned trial attorney Bob Latham told that it was unlikely that McGregor would eventually be convicted of a felony or face jail time, he also warned that it is unlikely that Thursday's court appearance provides a resolution.

The Dubliner appeared in court following on from charges laid down in relation to the attack on a bus carrying UFC fighters and employees at the Barclays Center loading bay, in April.
