Conor McGregor got pulled over for speeding, officer asked for selfie
UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor got pulled over for speeding, and instead of writing him a ticket, the officer asked him for a selfie, he said in an interview with SI Films.
“He looked at the driver’s license, looked at me and said, ‘Do you mind if I jump in your passenger seat for a selfie?’” McGregor said.
After the photo was taken, McGregor recalls that he was thanked by the officer and allowed to drive away without a ticket.
“Off I went at 200 mph,” said McGregor, who will fight Nate Diaz in a welterweight bout at UFC 196 on March 5.
McGregor, 27, has knocked out each of his past five opponents.
His last bout lasted just 13 seconds, as he KO’d Jose Aldo to claim the featherweight title.
