We’ve been asking ourselves for a while now, especially given his actions of late, whether UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor thinks he’s above the sport of MMA.
But is it time to take that a step further and wonder if “The Notorious” thinks he’s above the law?
McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) on Thursday morning was due in court to face a third charge for speeding after he was cited in March for driving 98 mph in a 60-mph zone on a road outside Dublin. Thing is, McGregor initially failed to appear, which angered the judge.
Conor McGregor made a late dash to court this morning after being accused of showing disrespect by not turning up to face a speeding charge for a third time.
The UFC star was due to appear at Blanchardstown District Court this morning but initially failed to show.
His solicitor admitted he did not know where McGregor was, and the judge reacted with fury.
Judge Miriam Walsh fumed: “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.”
So where was McGregor? Apparently at home taking a selfie to show off…
