Nothing to fear
UFC superstar turned boxer Conor McGregor has responded to claims his life had been threatened after a bar brawl with a man linked to the Irish underworld. The 29- year- old McGregor, who fought ( and lost to) Floyd Mayweather in the richest boxing bout in history in August, was rumoured to have twice punched a man whose relative had links to the feared Kinahan drugs gang. Reports emerged on social media the gang were seeking compensation of € 900,000 ( NZ$ 1,567,152) from McGregor and that he was under serious threat. McGregor appeared yesterday in the Blanchardstown District Court in Dublin on a charge of speeding. He responded to questions on the reported threats as he left court saying, ‘ Come and get me’. His father Tony said claims his son had been in the brawl were “absolute nonsense” and insisted they have “nothing to fear”.
