Conor McGregor Speeds Away From Court Telling Irish Mob ‘Come And Get Me’

Conor McGregor apparently doesn’t back down from a fight with anyone — not even the Irish mafia.

The superstar UFC fighter reportedly is in “very serious danger” after reportedly getting into a recent bar fight with someone with ties to a prominent Irish gang known as the Kinahans. By all accounts, this isn’t something McGregor should take lightly, as rumors have swirled that the mob might have a hit out for him.

But “The Notorious” didn’t seem overly concerned Thursday morning when leaving court after pleading guilty to a speeding charge. Flanked by reporters, McGregor sped away from court in a BMW i8 (of course), but not before seemingly antagonizing the mob.

It’s unclear whether McGregor was saying “come and get me” to the press or to the mob. But considering he was asked to give his response to threats made on his life, it’s probably safe to say he was directing his message toward the Kinahans.

Check out McGregor’s Instagram post from after the incident:

What a bizarre story this is turning out to be.

Given all the negative publicity surrounding McGregor since his boxing match with Floyd Mayweather Jr., it’s difficult to see him fighting in the UFC anytime to soon. UFC president Dana White, for one, doesn’t seem overly confident about his most popular fighter ever returning to the octagon.
