Best known for one of the quickest finishes in the history of the Octagon, Irish UFC star Conor McGregor is also apparently a speed demon on the road.

McGregor has been banned from driving for six months and incurred a 1,000 Euro fine (approximately $1,510 Canadian) for speeding, The Independent’s Samuel Osborne reports.

As Osborne says, the 30-year-old admitted to driving 54 km/h over the speed limit, going 154 in a 100 zone, in October last year near Dublin.

Getting booked for speeding is nothing new for McGregor as he has 12 previous traffic offences on his record, dating back to when he was in his teens.

McGregor sports a 21-4 professional MMA record and was the first man to hold two UFC titles in different weight classes simultaneously.

He last fought against Khabib Nurmagomedov, losing by submission in a fight that ended in riotous chaos when Nurmagomedov jumped over the cage to attack members of McGregor’s entourage and men from Nurmagomedov’s team hopped into the Octagon to jump an exhausted McGregor.
