Conor McGregor’s brush with the Irish cartel is all anybody can talk about these days. While rumors about a serious reaction from the cartel are swirling, however, McGregor himself seems to be taking it all pretty lightly. This week, the UFC lightweight champ was spotted driving away from court – but not before dishing out challenge. “Come and get me,” he said.
See it above.
While McGregor doesn’t seem to be terribly panicked about this situation, many experts are suggesting he should be extremely worried.
Speaking on Newstalk Breakfast earlier this week, here’s what veteran crime reporter Paul Williams had to say about it:
“I have to say about this, and I’m wearing my old, veteran crime reporter hat. Conor McGregor is in a very dangerous place at the moment. He has come into conflict through probably no fault of his own, with a group of very, very dangerous people who are tied up with the Kinahans. These people do not care who Conor McGregor is, what he stands for, how powerful he is, they will drag him down into the cesspit.
I would say, in the next 48 hours, if he’s still in the country – and I understand that he may have left the country – but if he is still in the country, I understand from my sources that the Garda will be approaching him to give him a GIM form, which is a Garda Information Message, to tell him that there may be threats to his safety. This is a huge story, and imagine what it would do to our reputation if this national sporting icon is attacked by a bunch of gangsters.”
What do you make of this latest Conor McGregor drama? Do you think the champ should be taking it a little more seriously?
