Mixed Martial Artist (MMA) and UFC star Conor McGregor has been remanded on continuing bail in connection with his dangerous driving case in Dublin. It is being reported that the Irishman could further charges in the same case. Notably, the 33-year-old caught the eye of Gardai, or the state police of the Republic of Ireland, while driving a Bentley Continental GP on March 22 in West Dublin.

Notably, the Ireland police had charged Conor McGregor with two counts of dangerous driving back in his 2019-reg car. To make matters worse for McGregor, he had been driving without insurance and even failed to produce the license along with the documents within the next 10 days.

After this incident, the matter was sub judice and Conor McGregor was successful in getting an 11-week adjournment. The same was made possible after solicitor Michael Staines produced a copy of his client’s insurance and license to the arresting officer.

And now, in a recent update, it is being learnt that if the fighter is convicted in this case he may have to serve a 6-month prison sentence. Moreover, the world’s highest-paid athlete may have to pay a maximum fine of up to €5,000.

Conor’s looking to come back the end of this year, early next year: Dana White

As far as his MMA career is concerned, Conor McGregor’s next fight is expected to either be in late 2022 or early 2023. However, the same will not be a rematch of the fight against Floyd Mayweather. Instead, The Notorious will make a comeback at the UFC. The same was confirmed by UFC President Dana White.

“Not me, I’m not talking about that,” White said with a laugh when quizzed on the Conor McGregor vs. Mayweather rematch reports on The Jim Rome Show on Monday. “[Conor’s return] will be in the cage. Conor’s looking to come back the end of this year, early next year,” he added.
