Speedy Conor McGregor hit with six-month ban from driving

I can’t imagine why the police are always picking on Conor McGregor.

I mean, it’s not like the former UFC lightweight champion is racing around the streets of Dublin in his yellow Lamborghini, torching wannabe dragsters and driving his neighbors crazy in the process.

Oh, wait...

McGregor was recently banned from driving for six months, according to a report from RTE, and fined €1,000 for tearing up the local streets. Fortunately, “Notorious” was able to avoid more serious changes like “dangerous driving,” despite a dozen prior offenses that include but are not limited to running a red light and driving in the bus lane.

At least the Irish mob wasn’t waiting for him after his latest court appearance.

After suffering a submission loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229, “Notorious” disappeared from the combat sports spotlight, instead focusing on his worldwide whiskey tour for Proper No. 12, which continues to break records despite its questionable reviews.

I guess that’s why he takes 40 buses to the gym.
