Conor McGregor 'Death Threat' Claims 'Have Become Funny' - Tony McGregor

McGregor pleaded guilty to breaking a 100kmh speed limit in Dubai on March 13.

A judge in Ireland ripped into Conor McGregor on Thursday for his "disrespect to the court" after the famous fighter showed up tardy to pay a speeding ticket.

He was charged with going over the 60 miles per hour speed limit in Dublin on March 13.

McGregor seemed to make light of the situation, however, as he documented his court appearance with several posts on social media.

He said: "I apologise and I'll pay the fine".

Judge Walsh said she was happy to deal with the case by accepting a guilty plea and without hearing any further evidence over the payment issue. "If he's making a case he has to be here", Walsh said to McGregor's solicitor, via The Mirror. "If he wants to make a case he has to be here", she said.


"What I heard was that I tried my best to pay for it".

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.

'It may sound stupid but I have to ask - please don't tell me that you earned 110 million in one day'. Or some people who are related to some very, very heavy people that could pose a serious threat to his safety and maybe even his life - and I don't say that lightly.

"As is my normal question in relation to the fine I have to ask you a question, how much do you earn?"

As laughter broke out, a smiling McGregor replied: '140'.

He was given two months to pay and could do so in instalments despite his huge cash-in from the Floyd Mayweather bout in August.
