Fears for Conor McGregor’s safety after brawl gone bad in Ireland
Conor McGregor could have more to worry about in the future after the Irishman picked up a £350 fine in court on Thursday.
‘The Notorious’ was handed the order for driving offenses and seemed as happy as could be when leaving the courtroom.
One thing McGregor did shout as he left in a high-powered car was, ‘come and get me’ – which to those not in the know wouldn’t make sense.
But the UFC star was referring to infamous Irish gangsters who may now be on his tail following a fight in a Crumlin bar called ‘The Black Forge’ or known locally as ‘The Forge’.

McGregor is rumoured to have ‘battered’ the father of a well-known gang member, leading to some on social media to fear for the multi-millionaire’s safety.
Several reports and tweets are eluding to possible retribution against McGregor who is expected to leave Ireland at the very first opportunity.
Police are said to be aware of what happened and are monitoring the situation surrounding McGregor’s behaviour.
Strange social media posts have been put out by McGregor since the incident against men some of those close to the area are saying the 29 year-old doesn’t want to get on the wrong side of.
UFC boss Dana White has also been briefed on what happened, although doesn’t seem overly concerned.
“I don’t think it’s true,” UFC President Dana White said, according to MMA Fighting. “Because if it was true, it would be big.
“Conor can walk down the street and it’s big news now. If this were true, I just have to believe it would be off-the-charts crazy. If it’s true, we’ll end up finding out. I can’t chase all these things around. If it’s true, we’ll get it figured out and we’ll go from there.”
White had stated earlier this week he’d be surprised to see McGregor back in an octagon in the near future on the back of making £140m for fighting Floyd Mayweather.
Another boxing match, this time against Mayweather rival Manny Pacquiao in 2018, has been touted should McGregor decide to keep himself out of trouble and get back to what he does best – throwing punches inside the ring.
