McGregor Speeds through Ireland

By ADRIAN GARCIA

Conor McGregor has been fined 400 Euros after he was caught speeding in Ireland earlier this year. A court spokesperson told ESPN that McGregor appeared at Blanchardstown District Court Thursday where judge Miriam Walsh handed him a 400 Euro fine, which he has been given two months to pay. The spokesperson also confirmed that the UFC star was charged after he was caught breaking the country’s 100kph (60mph) national speed limit while traveling on the N7 in County Dublin on March 31.

McGregor seemed to make light of the situation as he documented his court appearance with several posts on social media. One image shared on McGregor’s Instagram account showed the Irishman arriving at the courthouse in his BMW i8 sports car accompanied by the caption, “Getting charged in the supercharge. #courthouse #relaxjudge.” McGregor’s court appearance is the latest event in a long string of controversies for the lightweight champion after he pushed a referee at Bellator 187 on November. 10.

UFC president Dana White says it’s still not a given if company’s biggest star, lightweight champion Conor McGregor, ever fights again. Earlier this month, the UFC was positive  McGregor would return as early as this year, at UFC 219 on December. 30 in Las Vegas. The two sides are in the process of negotiating a new deal, however, McGregor is not expected to fight again in 2017.
