Conor McGregor brags about £140m payday as he is fined

Conor McGregor brags about £140m payday as he is fined

McGregor was summoned to the court to face his third charge for speeding after he was clocked for doing 98 miles per hour in a 60 miles per hour zone just outside Dublin this past March.

The fighter is accused of speeding on the Naas Road in Dublin on March 31.

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

McGregor apologized for being late once he did show.

The 29-year-old, originally from Dublin, initially told the court that he had attempted to pay the original £70 fine issued by the police's traffic branch for speeding.

"I have to ask you the question - how much to you earn?" she asked.

Solicitor Graham Kenny said McGregor was pleading guilty.

McGregor was said to have fled the Black Forge Inn and gone into hiding while a truce was arranged, but Tony told the Irish Mirror: "We're a law-abiding family and we've stayed a law-abiding family". I'm getting nothing but the fingers from Mr McGregor'. If he's making a case he has to be here. Judge Walsh told Mr Kenny to "tell him of my ire" and put the case back to second calling.

"This is absolute disrespect to the court". I am very annoyed with Mr McGregor. "It may sound stupid but I have to ask".

"€140million", McGregor replied as he and others in the courtroom laughed.

"She also said that the reigning UFC Lightweight Champ must slow down and, despite his fortune in life, to 'take cognisance of other people using the road".

"Come and get me!".

McGregor was given two months to make the payment, and even told he could pay in instalments - because of course he needs time to rustle up that kind of cash.
