Conor McGregor is on his way back to the United States for a hearing to face charges for his attack on the UFC fighter bus in April. TMZ reports that McGregor got on a jet today and is heading back to New York City for the hearing.

McGregor is facing a charge of felony criminal mischief and three charges of misdemeanor assault in the attack, which happened during a media day ahead of UFC 223. The fight resulted in several fights being cancelled, including Michael Chiesa vs. Anthony Pettis and Ray Borg vs. Brandon Moreno.

The site reports that McGregor is working on a plea deal with prosecutors over the incident. If convicted, he faces a possible seven years in prison.
