Conor McGregor has responded to recent ‘death threats’ in the most Conor McGregor way as he left court after being fined for speeding.
He also laughed as he told a judge how much he earns in a day.
The MMA fighter told Blanchardstown District Court in Dublin he had tried his best to pay an initial fixed charge notice.

The Irish Mirror reports McGregor told Judge Miriam Walsh:
I got the fixed charge notice and attempted to pay it. It didn’t pay and that’s it.
Judge Walsh replied: ‘That’s not it.’
His solicitor agreed McGregor was entering a ‘purely guilty plea’.
Judge Walsh then asked the MMA star how much he earns, saying: ‘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 and gave him two months to pay and said it could be paid in instalments – which we’re pretty sure won’t be necessary given the previous information.
McGregor was then urged to slow down and ‘take cognisance of other people using the road’. He apologised and promised to pay the fine.
As ‘The Notorious’ drove away from the court building he seemingly responded to questions about the recent ‘death threats’ which he allegedly received after an apparent bar fight.
Leaving court, he said:
Come and get me. Come and get me.
Conor McGregor’s dad Tony spoke out following claims his son was involved in the pub fight with a gangster’s relative.
Apparent witnesses were vocal on social media when describing an alleged brawl between the UFC champ and three men who have been said to have close links to criminal activity.
The alleged fight took place at The Black Forge in Crumlin, a suburb of Dublin, according to reports.
The Irish Independent reported ‘a well-known Irish celebrity’ assaulted a man in a south Dublin pub, when someone tried to intervene before getting punched in the face.

The man, in his 50s, is said to have close links with a convicted drug dealer who’s connected to an infamous gang and now, a huge sum of money is reportedly needed to prevent further violence.
However Tony McGregor refuted reports his family are under threat from the Kinahan cartel.
McGregor was seen by fans in the pub last Sunday night, before a scrap allegedly erupted, which is said to have included McGregor, a younger man, a man in his 50s and another unidentified man.
Speaking to the Irish Mirror, Tony said:
That’s all nonsense that is. Absolute nonsense. It’s an absolute nonsense story. It’s grown legs and it’s getting that ridiculous – it’s become funny.
We have nothing to fear here whatsoever. There’s no one after us for anything. We’re a law-abiding family and we’ve stayed a law-abiding family.
As a matter of fact, right now I’m going out to buy my TV licence. I’d view 95% of that story as nonsense and the other 5% is overly exaggerated. And that’s it.
He’s at home with his son. We’re all just settling down for Christmas now. I’ve just got the grandson’s presents in today, they just came in from America.
I’ll be wrapping them, putting them under the tree for the big day. That’s it.
He doesn’t give one, does he?
