UFC star Conor McGregor arrives to court, faces possible further charges

Conor McGregor left his Lamborghini Yacht in the South of France to return home and handle a legal issue.

Along with the six current driving offenses he is accused of, the mixed martial arts champion might face more charges. He attended the Dublin court hearing on Thursday.

The former UFC dual-weight champion arrived in Blanchardstown District Court in a Rolls Royce and a three-piece blue suit. He strolled through the gathered reporters as he entered the courthouse without saying anything.

As the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) evaluates the evidence and as potential further charges are pending, the judge postponed the hearing to Thursday, September 8, at 10:30 am.

McGregor’s most recent court appearance was on April 7 for two charges of reckless driving on March 22. He was also accused of failing to present a license or insurance certificate and of driving without insurance and a license.

The UFC fighter was stopped by gardai on March 22 while driving his Bentley Continental GT on the N4 in west Dublin.

When the UFC fighter was taken into custody in March, a representative for him claimed: “Mr. McGregor was driving to the gym when he was stopped by gardaí for alleged road traffic violations. He passed the drug and alcohol tests taken at the station.”

After breaking his tibia and fibula at UFC 264 in July of last year, McGregor is presently recovering. In preparation for his widely awaited comeback to the octagon later this year, he has started training once again.

McGregor has significantly bulked up while he has been away from the sport. He now intends to fight at welterweight going ahead.

However, there have been rumors that he and Floyd Mayweather are discussing a potential rematch.

McGregor even made a social media hint about the possibility. He shared a photo of himself delivering a body shot to a boxing Hall of Famer with the message, “I accept.”
