7:37 AM PT-- Conor McGregor does it again!!! He formally pled guilty in his pub attack case -- but received NO jail time, despite facing 6 months behind bars.
Instead, the court fined McGregor €1,000 ... which converts to roughly $1,116.
Plus, during the hearing, it was confirmed McGregor struck a private financial settlement with the victim, but the exact number was not revealed.
Bottom line, Conor's rich as hell ... so a fine is barely a slap on the wrist.
During the hearing, McGregor told the court, "I assure you nothing of this nature will happen again regarding me."
Yeah, we've heard that one before. By the way, during the hearing it was reportedly revealed that Conor has 18 previous convictions, including a prior assault in 2009. Most of the incidents are moving vehicle violations, like speeding, etc.
Conor McGregorjust showed up in court in Ireland where his lawyer told the judge the UFC star will plead GUILTY in his pub attack case.
The UFC superstar is facing one charge of assault after he socked a man in the face at the Marble Arch Pub in Dublin back on April 6, in footage obtained byTMZ Sports.
The charge carries a maximum punishment of 6 months behind bars.
Conor McGregor - @TheNotoriousMMA - arrives to court this morning where he's expected to make a plea over an alleged punch in a Dublin pub
McGregor showed up to court Friday in a fancy suit ... but he wasn't smiling and goofing around. Instead, he was clasping his hands and had his game face on as he walked into the building.
Inside the courtroom, McGregor's attorney told the court his client will be pleading guilty -- but it's not over yet. The court is on a short recess and will resume at 7 AM PT.
The victim in the incident did NOT show up to the hearing and chose not to submit a victim impact statement,according to local reports.
Prosecutors are lobbying to screen the attack video in court before sentencing this afternoon, but Conor's side is trying to block that.
The decision will ultimately be made when court resumes after the break.
