Come and get me: McGregor's response to alleged threats made against his life

People call Conor McGregor 'notorious' for nothing. The Irish star just did what he does best - showing some amazing attitude to his haters.

According to The Mirror, the UFC Lightweight Champion has responded to alleged threats made against his life, saying "Come and get me" after the UFC champion was reportedly involved in a pub brawl last weekend.

Allegations surfaced this week that the UFC star was involved in the altercation with a man in his 50s.

He was said to have links to the notorious Kinahan gang and it was even alleged they were seeking compensation of GBP 790,000 from McGregor.

The Irishman appeared in court on Thursday morning to face a speeding charge, for which he was fined GBP 350, and was subsequently asked by reporters to comment on claims he has received death threats from an Irish gang after allegedly assaulting a man linked to the organisation.

But speaking out of his car window outside Blanchardstown District Court in Dublin, the 29-year-old just said, "Come and get me".

Irish Police have confirmed they are aware of reports linking McGregor to a fight at an Irish pub on Sunday but have not received any complaints regarding the alleged altercation.

However, the fighter's father, Tony McGregor, dismissed such rumours as "absolute nonsense" though.

UFC chief Dana White has similarly downplayed the claims.
