Conor McGregor hit by car while out riding his bike as driver dazzled by sun ploughs into him from behind

CONOR McGregor has revealed he was hit by a car while riding his bike after the driver was dazzled by the sun.

The former two-division champion says that his knowledge of MMA “saved his life” and he “could have been dead”.

McGregor claims he had been riding his bike when he was hit by a car from behind.

The Notorious  posted a picture of the aftermath of the crash on Instagram.

He wrote: “Got a bang of a car just now from behind.

“A sun trap, the driver couldn’t see me. Full speed straight through me.

“Thank you God, it wasn’t my time.

“Thank you wrestling and judo also. Having an awareness on the landing saved my life.”


In a video, the Irishman is heard telling the driver he is “all good” as the motorist says he is “totally sorry”.

McGregor is then heard saying: “That’s nasty. I could have been dead there.”

He shows the camera that his pants have been ripped from skidding along the tarmac.

The driver, who introduces himself as Nick, then gives McGregor and his bike a lift home.

McGregor is known to cycle as preparation in the weeks leading up to fights.

Fans and friends rushed to the comments to tell of their shock.


Filmmaker Garrett Warren wrote: “That’s a proper stunt adjustment right there.

“I wonder how fast he was going? The car seemed far away when it stopped so had to be a good speed.

“That’s amazing! Love the nod to GOD so much.”

Another fan joked: “That driver looks terrified, he thought you were gonna swing off on him.”

A third added: “Imagine cleaning someone off their bike and then realising it’s McGregor.”

It comes after the UFC star broke his leg in his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier 18 months ago.

He has undergone a painstaking rehab to get himself back fighting fit and is now in talks with the UFC brass over a big-money return.

It is not known whether the crash will be a set-back.

He has been busy in the gym while being out injured and has seriously bulked up, showing off his new look on Instagram.

He increased his muscle mass and now weighs in at a reported 190lb.

The crash follows the news McGregor is being probed by cops after a woman claimed he attacked her in Ibiza.

It’s claimed The Notorious attacked her on July 17, 2022, during celebrations on board his two yachts for his 34th birthday.

McGregor strenuously denies the allegations and Spanish cops previously stated that the MMA star was not involved.

The woman, who is said to be from Dublin, first made a formal complaint about McGregor to gardai after returning to Ireland.
