McGregor has been charged with ‘strong-arm robbery and criminal mischief’ after the fracas outside a hotel on March 11.
It comes after the 30-year-old fighter had a brush with the law in the US over a violent incident at a UFC event.
Several people were hurt when he hurled a trolley at a bus, smashing a window, as it left the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn in April 2018.
A former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion, McGregor has become one of the sport’s biggest stars and a global celebrity.
According to Forbes he is worth around €80 million, while his social media accounts show a life lived in luxury on private jets and behind the wheels of high-performance cars.
