UFC star Conor McGregor slapped with driving ban & fine in Ireland
Appearing in a district court just outside Dublin, the former two-weight UFC champion apologized to the judge after being clocked in his Range Rover driving at 96mph (154kph) in a 62mph (100kph) zone in County Kildare in October of last year.
McGregor, 30, was also handed a €1,000 (US$1,130) fine over the incident.
The UFC star is reportedly a repeat offender behind the wheel, with 12 previous traffic offences to his name dating back to his teens.
"The speed here is in the higher end. Speed kills and that is what makes speeding dangerous,” said judge Desmond Zaidan.
"When speeding goes wrong the consequences are catastrophic and life-changing, there is no question about that.
"Sadly we have lost more lives on our roads because of excessive speeding, dangerous speeds and other bad behavior."
‘The Notorious’ also fell foul of the law earlier this year in the US, when he attacked a bus carrying UFC rivals in Brooklyn.
On that occasion he escaped jail and a criminal record after agreeing a plea deal in July.
McGregor’s target on the bus was Russian fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov, who eventually defeated the Irishman on his return to the octagon at UFC 229 in October.
That bout was followed by a mass brawl, for which both fighters – as well as members of their teams – face a Nevada State Athletic Commission hearing on December 10.
McGregor often shares pictures of himself with an array of luxury cars on his various social media accounts - either behind the wheel himself or being chauffeur-driven.
