UFC star Conor McGregor was accompanied by MMA fighter Charlie Ward as he left a Dublin court yesterday - writes dublinlive.ie.

McGregor was fined €400 in Blanchardstown District Court for speeding.

He told the court that he had tried his best to pay the fine.

Wearing a green Adidas tracksuit, he swaggered towards the judge to take his oath.

He said: “I got the fixed charge notice and attempted to pay it.

“It didn’t pay and that’s it.”

The judge replied: “That’s not it.”

His solicitor agreed that McGregor was entering a “purely guilty plea”.

Judge Miriam Walsh then asked the MMA star how much he earns.

“Please don’t tell me you earn €110 million in one day.”

McGregor laughed and replied: “€140 million in one day.”

The judge fined him €400 with two months to pay and said it could be paid in instalments.

McGregor left the court and drove away in a high end sports car along with fellow fighter Charlie Ward.
