Updates on commercial crew test schedules for both Boeing and SpaceX are expected to be released as soon as next week. The June hot-fire test at NASA's White Sands Test Facility in New Mexico didn't go entirely as planned, though.
McGregor, who faced a maximum of seven years in prison after being charged with two counts of felony criminal mischief and several misdemeanors, took the plea deal Thursday. "I want to say to my friends, my family, my fans, thank you for the support", McGregor said in a statement outside the court.
"This is a fair resolution that holds the defendant accountable, ensures restitution for the victims and requires the defendant to perform community service where he can reflect on his conduct and give back to society", the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office said in a statement.
He pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, a violation which will not result in a criminal record. Nurmagomedov was on the bus that McGregor attacked, and was the target of the Irish star's actions.
The charges stemmed from an incident at Barclays Center in which McGregor threw a hand truck into a bus, shattering the window and forcing Chiesa and Borg to withdraw from the event after being injured by shards of glass.
At the time of the brawl, McGregor was angry that the UFC had stripped him of the lightweight title, according his Twitter posts.
