​Conor McGregor Brags About £120m Payday While In Court For Unpaid Speeding Fine

It may not exactly come as news to you that UFC star Conor McGregor is raking in the big bucks - it's not like he's shy about it, let's face it. Aside from his high profile UFC career, the Irish boxer has endorsement deals coming out of his cauliflower ears - not to mention his new film, aptly titled Notorious, which was made by Universal Studios.

Yeah, how much cash we assumed McGregor has was already sickening enough - but now he's claimed it surpasses even more than that.

Appearing in court in Dublin for a speeding charge, McGregor was fined £350 (€400/$470). McGregor had already pissed the judge off by not showing up on time, but was eventually dragged into court when he was threatened with arrest, reports the Mirror.

Upon pleading guilty, Judge Miriam Walsh asked a question that, to anyone else, would be kinda rude - not when you're Conor McGregor, though.

"I have to ask you the question - how much to you earn?" she asked. "It may sound stupid but I have to ask. Please don't tell me you earn more than €110 million (£100m/$130m) in a day?"

"€140 million (£120m/$160m)," McGregor bragged, reports the Mirror.

McGregor was originally charged for breaking a 60mph (96kmph) speed limit in Dublin earlier this year, and was charged 80 (£70/$95). However, he didn't make the payment, and also failed to turn up in court - three times. No wonder the judge was pissed.

"I got the fixed charge notice and attempted to pay it," McGregor said. "It didn't pay and that's it."

But the judge wasn't going to let him off lightly, adding: "That's not it."

She also said that the reigning UFC Lightweight Champ must slow down and, despite his fortune in life, to 'take cognisance of other people using the road."

He said: "I apologise and I'll pay the fine."

McGregor was given two months to make the payment, and even told he could pay in instalments - because of course he needs time to rustle up that kind of cash. He's just like the rest of us mere mortals, who usually have to do with just about anything over a tenner, isn't he?

He rolled out of court in a £200,000 ($270,000) BMW i8, just to put that into context. Lucky git.
