The former dual-weight UFC champion wore a three-piece navy suit and drove a Rolls Royce when he attended Blanchardstown District Court.

He made no indication of how he intends to plead to the charges made against him.

The judge adjourned the case until Thursday September 8 at 10.30am while the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) considers the case, and pending possible further charges, the court heard.

McGregor last appeared in court on 7 April over two counts of dangerous driving on March 22.

He was also charged with driving without insurance and a licence, and failing to produce a certificate of insurance or licence.

The UFC star had been travelling in his Bentley Continental GT on the N4 in west Dublin when he was stopped by gardai on March 22.

The 33-year-old did not make any comment when he walked past the assembled media as he entered the court house.

When arrested in March, a spokesperson for the UFC star said: “Mr. McGregor was driving to the gym when he was stopped by gardaí for alleged road traffic violations. He passed the drug and alcohol tests taken at the station.”

McGregor is currently healing up after suffering a fractured tibia and fibula at UFC 264 last July. The Irishman recently began kicking again ahead of his eagerly anticipated return to the octagon later this year.

During his time away from the sport, McGregor has seriously bulked up and is now planning on competing at welterweight moving forward.

‘Notorious’ has recently been called out by Charles Oliveira, Michael Chandler, and Jorge Masvidal but is intent on securing a shot at 170lb champion Kamaru Usman.

However, rumours have been circulating that he is in talks with Floyd Mayweather for a possible second fight.

McGregor even hinted at the prospect on social media when he posted a picture of him landing a body shot on the boxing Hall of Famer, alongside the caption: “I accept.”
