Conor McGregor Under Investigation By Police After Taking Gun Photo ...

The Irish police are currently investigating Conor McGregor for posting a photo of a man in a ski mask holding a gun.

On Thursday, UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor posted an Instagram photo of someone posing with a gun in what appears to be one of the Irishman’s cars.

“Put the fight game in the bag and step away from the vehicle,” the caption reads. The Irish Independent1 confirmed local police are currently investigating the photograph.

“We are investigating the circumstances under which the photo was taken. Gardai from Crumlin are investigating,” a Gardai spokesperson said.

It’s difficult to identify who’s holding the weapon and whether it is, in fact, a real gun.

It does appear to be the Dubliner’s BMW i8 car, however. Given Ireland’s strict gun laws and McGregor’s footage of shooting an Airsoft pellet gun in the past, it’s unlikely that the 27-year-old was posing with a real gun.

It was recently reported that Conor McGregor will move up to the lightweight division to challenge Rafael dos Anjos for the 155 lbs. title2. Rafael dos Anjos vs.

Conor McGregor3 is expected to headline the UFC 1974 PPV on March 5th in Las Vegas, Nevada.
