White and McGregor were initially set to meet at UFC Fight Night 130 in Liverpool, England, in late May, but that meeting never took place.

"He and I are meeting on the 18th of this month", White told TMZ Sports.

McGregor infamously got himself into hot water (as well as legal trouble) after attacking a bus containing UFC fighters in Brooklyn right before UFC 223. I don't know what Conor and his team have worked on. While he did box Floyd Mayweather last August, McGregor hasn't defended either of his UFC titles he earned nor has he fought in the octagon nearly two years. McGregor's lawyer didn't return a message. After the event, White said he planned to meet with McGregor in Las Vegas but didn't specify a date.

It's all set to go down at 6 AM PT - and Conor is required to attend the hearing in person.

Since his last UFC, McGregor has competed inside a boxing ring against Floyd Mayweather, losing the fight on a 10th-round TKO.

Irish mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor is due in court in NY for a hearing on charges stemming from a backstage melee that was caught on camera.

McGregor was subsequently arrested, charged with three counts of assault, one of criminal mischief and released on bail.

Reports in America are saying that McGregor is working on a plea deal as he could face seven years in prison for the incident. "Whatever happens tomorrow, I will be as shocked as you".
