Mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor is in plea negotiations to resolve charges stemming from a backstage melee at a New York arena.

The 29-year-old Irish fighter and co-defendant Cian Cowley remained free on bail after a brief court appearance on Thursday. They are due back in court on July 26.

A prosecutor said plea negotiations are continuing.

Video footage showed McGregor hurling a trolley at a bus full of fighters after a press conference for UFC 223 at Barclays Centre in Brooklyn in April.

Fighters Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg were injured by shattered glass and unable to compete.
