Conor McGregor made a late dash to court this morning after being accused of showing disrespect by not turning up to face a speeding charge for a third time.
The UFC star was due to appear at Blanchardstown District Court this morning but initially failed to show.
His solicitor admitted he did not know where McGregor was, and the judge reacted with fury.
Judge Miriam Walsh fumed: “I’m getting nothing but fingers from Mr. McGregor. If he’s making a case he has to be here.
“This is absolute disrespect to the court. I am very annoyed with Mr. McGregor.”
We wonder where Mcgregor was? All of this might be the most McGregor thing ever. “No time for a court date, gotta pose in my sweatsuit!”
Graham Kenny, McGregor’s lawyer, told the judge he would call McGregor to get him to court. Eventually, on late Thursday he showed up to the court in his BMW i8, but not without more Instagramming.

When McGregor was asked by the judge if he remembered speeding on the day in question he said: “emm I can’t remember to be honest, what I did also hear is I tried my best to pay for it.”
McGregor entered a guilty plea, and when asked by the judge why he failed to pay the fixed charge notice he said “I don’t know, I didn’t pay and that’s it”
To which the judge replied, “that’s not it”.
Addressing McGregor, the judge said, “I have to ask, how much do you earn – and don’t say €110 million in one day.”
McGregor responded to say “140” while laughing.
