UFC fighter Conor McGregor has been banned from driving for six months after being caught driving at 95mph in 60mph zone in his native Ireland.

McGregor, 30, was pictured arriving at Naas district court in Co Kildare, just west of Dublin, earlier today.

He appeared before a judge and a courtroom packed with supporters, charged with four offences, one for speeding and the other three related to his driving licence.

The multi-millionaire MMA star was meant to appear in court last Wednesday – but never turned up.

An unimpressed Judge Desmond Zaidan ordered McGregor’s solicitor to order his client to appear before the court, and moved the hearing.

McGregor had been facing a fine of between £300 and £350 and five points on his licence, however it is the second time he has been caught speeding in the same area in 18 months.

In November 2017, McGregor was fined 400 euro (£350), having been clocked driving at 98mph in a 62mph zone at Rathcoole, Co Dublin, just ten miles from Naas, in March.
