Conor McGregor and his MMA fighter pal Cian Cowley have departed Dublin via private jet ahead of their court appearance for assault in the US.

The pair are due before a New York judge on Thursday after being charged over a bus attack at UFC 223 in Brooklyn in April.

The 29-year-old faces three charges of misdemeanour assault and one count of felony criminal mischief.

Conor posted a photo online yesterday evening which showed the Crumlin star and fighter Cowley standing in front of a jet.

Conor’s young son - Conor Junior - was in the front of the shot, while Cowley’s young son was also pictured.

Earlier this week, McGregor congratulated Cowley for an MMA event win and tweeted: “Congrats @CianCowley from the cells to the stadiums. Not a scratch. They done nothing.

“Jet leaves Tuesday my brother have a good one.”
