When Conor McGregor will fight again following an alleged assault at UFC 223 is anybody’s guess. But his teammate, who was also involved, has been booked for a bout.
Cian Cowley, who trains at SBG Ireland with McGregor, has signed with Brave Combat Federation and will compete next month at Brave 13, according to a report from MMAUK.net, which was subsequently confirmed by MMAFighting.com.
Cowley (0-1) is set to meet Daniel Olejniczak (1-1) at the June 9 event from SSE Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Cowley was among the roughly dozen men to storm Barclays Center after UFC 223 media day last month. He and McGregor were the only two men charged with assault for their involvement in the attack caught on video that showed McGregor throwing a dolly through the window of a bus carrying red-corner fighters, including UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The melee, which injured two fighters and forced the cancellation of three bouts, was in retaliation for a run-in earlier in fight week between Nurmagomedov and McGregor teammate Artem Lobov,
McGregor and Cowley are set to appear in court June 14 in New York.
Cowley’s fight at Brave 13 will be just his second as a professional. He was choked out in his May 2017 debut at BAMMA 29.
