UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor’s whirlwind of controversy continues and this time it has to do with the fighter being late for a court appearance for getting caught speeding this past March.
This is the third time McGregor was due in court to address the speeding ticket and the judge proceeding over the case wasn’t too pleased, according to a report from The Mirror.
“I’m getting nothing but fingers from Mr. McGregor. If he’s making a case he has to be here. This is absolute disrespect to the court. I am very annoyed with Mr. McGregor,” said Judge Miriam Walsh.
Prior to and after the fighter’s appearance in court, a slew of new posts were made on his official Instagram page:
Once the fighter appeared in front of the judge, a fine for the speeding tickets would be issued at 350 pounds or $471.25 USD. The UFC Lightweight Champion was also given the option to pay the fine all at once or through an installment plan provided by the court.
McGregor has had one crazy month that has been intertwined with a lot of controversy.
The latest bit of that controversy came this past Sunday Night when the fighter was allegedly involved in a bar room brawl.
During the alleged brawl, the UFC Lightweight Champion struck a 50 year old man who apparently has tied to a local organized crime group known as the Kinahan cartel.
This situation even lead to the UFC President in Dana White commenting on the matter, saying the alleged run in cannot be good for the Irishman.
McGregor, after leaving a court appearance for a speeding ticket this past March, had a quick message to deliver to the cartel.
That message was simply to “come and get me.”
RTE News captured McGregor exiting the court room and delivering the message, a video of which was posted to Twitter:
After delivering the message, the UFC Lightweight Champion hurried into his BMW before speeding away from the scene.
Besides the run in with a potential cartel associate, the UFC Lightweight Champion was caught using a homophobic slur backstage at UFC Fight Night Gdansk and hopping the cage at Bellator 187.
