Cian Cowley, who was arrested along with Conor McGregor for his role in an attack an a bus carry UFC fighters and employees last month ahead of UFC 223, has been booked for his next fight.
According to reports from MMAUK.net and MMAFighting.com, Cowley will square off against Daniel Olejniczak in a welterweight bout at Brave 13 in Dublin on June 9.
Cowley, one of McGregor’s training partners at SBG Ireland, was charged with one count of criminal mischief in Brooklyn and is due to return to court on June 14. McGregor is facing three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief after hurling a dolly through the bus window, injuring fighters Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg as well as a UFC employee.
McGregor and Cowley were part of a large group of fighters involved in the incident, which is believed to be in response to a confrontation between UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and SBG Ireland’s Artem Lobov earlier during UFC 223 fight week. Nurmagomedov was one of the fighters on the bus.
Cowley is 0-1 as a professional after falling to David Khalsa via first-round submission at British Association of Mixed Martial Arts 29 on May 12, 2017. The fighter known as “The Warrior” compiled a 3-1 mark as an amateur prior to his pro debut.
