Conor McGregor Life At Risk After Run-In With Irish Mobster
Reports are flooding in saying Conor McGregor’s life is potentially in danger after an alleged run-in with Irish mobsters, says a leading crime reporter.
According to a report on Fox Sports, renowned Irish Crime Journalist Paul Williams says the UFC megastar is on the verge of being officially warned by police that is his safety is at risk.
The problems began when McGregor reportedly became embroiled in a Dublin pub fight that saw him hit three men with links to the Kinahan cartel.
Internet speculation, completely unconfirmed, went that McGregor’s life may be in danger unless he produced restitution of 900,000 euros ($1.4 million) to the father of gangster Graham ‘The Wig’ Whelan. Williams said concern over McGregor was genuine.
“I have to say about this, and I’m wearing my old, veteran crime reporter hat: Conor McGregor is in a very dangerous place at the moment,” Williams said on Newstalk Breakfast, a radio show he co-hosts.
“He has come into conflict through probably no fault of his own, with a group of very, very dangerous people who are tied up with the Kinahans. These people do not care who Conor McGregor is, what he stands for, how powerful he is, they will drag him down into the cesspit.
“I would say, in the next 48 hours, if he still in the country - and I understand that he may have left the country - but if he is still in the country, I understand from my sources that the Garda will be approaching him to give him a GIM form, which is a Garda Information Message, to tell him that there may be threats to his safety.
This is a huge story, and imagine what it would do to our reputation if this national sporting icon is attacked by a bunch of gangsters.”
We’re hoping Conor McGregor stays safe.
