That’s because the Irish MMA star just got his license yanked for six months in Ireland, according to TMZ. (RELATED: Conor McGregor’s Legal Troubles Could Possibly Cost Him A Fortune)

The ban stems from an incident in 2017 when McGregor was pulled over for speeding. In a hearing this week, the judge accused the high-profile star of driving his blue Range Rover 95 mph in a 60 mph zone — not exactly a small deal.

It probably doesn’t help that McGregor has been in and out of legal trouble over the past several years … perhaps the judge decided it would be in everybody’s interest to keep him off the road for a little while.

In addition to the six-month ban, McGregor was also forced to fork over $1,100. Forbes, however, did just rank McGregor the 12th highest-paid celebrity, so we can’t imagine he’s going to miss it that much.
