Conor McGregor has finally arrived at court this afternoon. Judge Miriam Walsh ordered the appearance after the UFC star failed to turn up for the third time on a speeding charge.

According to The Irish Independent, The McGregor was ordered by a judge to appear at Blanchardstown District Court for a speeding charge but instead McGregor sent his solicitor Graham Kenny to handle the case in his absence. 

Judge Miriam Walsh was not satisfied with the no-show and ordered McGregor to appear in person.

“I'm getting nothing but fingers from Mr McGregor, if he wants to make a case he has to be here,” Walsh said.

“This is absolute disrespect to the court... a bench warrant will be coming his way if he does not turn up."

McGregor was called by his solicitor following the judge's remarks. 

The UFC champion was charged with exceeding the 100km speed limit on the N7 Naas Road at Rathcoole on 31 March 2017.

It is the third time that he has failed to appear for the court hearing. 

In the first instance, his case was adjourned because he was not present and he was also expected to appear in court last Thursday but again was missing in absence. 

This news comes after widespread reports have linked McGregor to a pub brawl in Crumlin on Sunday night, which his father Tony has since denied

UPDATE: Conor McGregor has now arrived in court on order of the judge.
