Conor McGregor receives £350 fine for speeding

McGregor had pleaded guilty to a charge of driving at 158kph (98mph) in a 100kph (62mph) zone on March 31st past year.

The athlete claimed to the court that he had tried unsuccessfully to pay the fine. The UFC champion described the claims as "b***ocks" as he left.

McGregor then rolled up to the courthouse in a £200,000 BMW i8 sports auto before being handed the £350 fine. At a previous hearing Judge Walsh said that if any defendant wanted to make an argument, that person must attend court themselves or send a legal representative.

He added: "He's prepared to accept the fine but when he returned the fixed charge notice he didn't put his driving licence number on it". "If he wants to make a case he has to be here", she said.

He was not in Blanchardstown District Court last week when his case was called, but his business manager Alan Geraghty said he was appearing on behalf of McGregor, nicknamed the Notorious.

According to his lawyer, Mr. McGregor entered into a guilty plea, agreeing to pay the amount specified by the fine. Judge Walsh told Mr Kenny to "tell him of my ire" and put the case back to second calling. After he arrived, he spent a brief period of time in court before he was fined after pleading guilty. I attempted to pay it. "It may sound stupid but I have to ask".

"Come and get me", McGregor responded when asked about alleged threats to his life. Sports Illustrated and the New York Post, among other outlets, have named McGregor in connection with the report. He was given two months to pay and was told he could pay in installments.

She told him that despite his good fortune in life he should take cognisance of other road users and reduce his speed.
