It was enough to know that Conor McGregor gave himself up to the New York police and was arraigned on charges of assault and criminal mischief. When he appeared in court he was given bail of $50,000 which given the man's wealth was an easy figure to post. The main question now of course is whether the brawl, even if it started out as a P.R. stunt, will damage McGregor's career. Obviously if he is found guilty it could prove detrimental to his ability to perform in America, his biggest financial market.
