On Thursday, Conor McGregor made a spectacle at an otherwise routine traffic court appearance, because he's Conor McGregor and he makes a spectacle pretty much everywhere he goes, whether it's at a local bar or a fight he wasn't even in.

He was wearing a matching pair of green Adidas jogging bottoms and sweatshirt along with white trainers.

"This is like a broken record", said Judge Walsh, referring to the fact that it was McGregor's third time failing to appear regarding the charges. If that is not paid within 28 days, the fine increases to €120 (£105).
