Conor McGregor has been told he can pay his €400 speeding fine in installments if he so wishes.

The UFC fighter appeared before Blanchardstown District Court earlier, where he pleaded guilty to speeding in Dublin.

On March 31st this year, Mr McGregor was clocked doing 158 in a 100km/hr zone on a stretch of the Naas Road at Rathcoole in Dublin.

When his case was called this morning the Mixed Martial Arts fighter, who is the reigning UFC lightweight champion, was nowhere to be seen.

Judge Miriam Walsh accused him of showing "absolute disrespect" to her court and threatened to issue a bench warrant if he did not make his way in.

He arrived a short time later in a black BMW i8 sports car and apologised for speeding and for not coming to court in person this morning.

Before handing down a €400 fine, Judge Walsh asked him how much he earned. "And don’t tell me €110m in one day," she said, to which he replied: "Well, €140m".

He has been given him two months to pay the fine and Judge Walsh also gave him the option of paying in installments if he so wishes.
