Conor McGregor has appeared in court on motoring offences again – three weeks after he was banned for six months for speeding.

The 30-year-old MMA fighter was seen arriving at Dublin District Court this morning following a motoring incident in the city in July.

McGregor is believed to have been charged with failure to produce his driving licence and insurance documents having been stopped in a Range Rover in the Rathmines area of the city, according to Buzz.ie.

The former UFC champion is said to have been given ten days to produce the documentation at a local station after being stopped.

It comes just weeks after he was banned from driving for six months and fined 1,000 euros (£888) having been caught driving at 95mph in 60mph zone in his native Ireland.

McGregor was stopped by police in Co. Kildare in October last year, while travelling at around one-and-a-half times the speed limit.

He appeared before a judge and a courtroom packed with supporters at Naas district court in Co Kildare, just west of Dublin, in November.

At the time, McGregor apologised to the judge, who said he was disappointed in the UFC fighter. 

He reminded McGregor of the number of deaths caused on the roads, asking why he did not face a more serious charge.

In September, McGregor launched his own whiskey, Proper Twelve, claiming to have spent ‘a lifetime studying this craft’ and to have a long family history in the distilling process.

McGregor said his brand of whiskey is ‘proper Irish whiskey from a proper Irish man.’

The whiskey is described on the brand’s own Instagram page as ‘a blend of the finest golden grain and single malt with hints of vanilla, honey and toasted wood.’
