Conor McGregor is aiming for a UFC return this summer, but he is currently facing legal consequences on his return to Ireland.
Awesome UFC Conor McGregor is making headlines once again, but it’s a long way from the Octagon. According to The Independent, McGregor was arrested for alleged “dangerous driving” while back in his native Ireland.
The incident happened in Dublin, when McGregor was taken to Lucan garda station. Charges were officially filed and he has since been released on bail. The Independent reports that police seized his Bentley, but the car was later returned to him as well.
Conor McGregor could receive up to six months in prison
With his dangerous driving arrest, fines could go up to 5,000 euros, while McGregor could also get a fine of six months behind bars. Obviously, his legal team will do everything they can to keep things in order here and avoid jail at all costs.
McGregor is known as a UFC legend and he hopes to return to fighting later this year. McGregor hasn’t been able to wear gloves since his loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264. During that fight, McGregor suffered a terrible broken leg.
He has undergone surgery and is trying to come back. UFC fans could see McGregor return within the next few months, but of course he’ll need to sort out his legal troubles first. McGregor is no stranger to trouble with the law, as he has a long list of crimes. Now, he hopes to avoid prison so he can continue training.
Much will certainly come from this story.
