CONOR McGregor has been pictured driving for the first time since his recent high-profile speeding case.

The UFC fighter put up a selfie of himself today on social media of him driving his open topped Bentley coupe.

It is the same €150,000 vehicle he was caught speeding with and with no insurance in March.

“Chocolate eyes back in the couple, no roof,” he wrote on Instagram.

The 33 -year old showed up at Blanchardstown Court in Dublin earlier this month charged with speeding and driving with no insurance or licence.

The UFC star was stopped while driving his €150,000 Bentley Continental GT in March.

Judge David McHugh then gave him 11 weeks to decide how to plead to the motoring offences after he was stopped behind the wheel of the sports car.

McGregor was charged with two counts of dangerous driving after being pulled over.

But he was further charged at the courthouse with being uninsured and having no licence and failing to produce his documents within 10 days of the incident.

The Notorious' car was reportedly seized at the scene before eventually being returned to the former two-division UFC champion.

On conviction, dangerous driving carries a maximum fine of up to €5,000 and six months imprisonment.

McGregor has to appear again in court in relation to the case on June 23, when he will have to enter a plea or set a later hearing date if he contests the charges.

He has received a number of previous driving convictions, and pleaded guilty in 2019 to common assault.

The fighter has recently been spending a lot of time in Dublin as he works his way back to full fitness after breaking his leg at UFC 264, and has been training at Crumlin Boxing Club.
