Conor McGregor is hit by a car while cycling: MMA fighter says vehicle went ‘full speed straight through me – thank you God it wasn’t my time’
Conor McGregor has been hit by a car whilst out cycling on his bike.
The MMA fighter posted footage of the immediate aftermath on his Instagram page saying ‘I could have been dead’ as an incredibly apologetic man tells McGregor how sorry he is.
The 34-year-old McGregor’s crumpled turquoise racing bike was pictures on the ground with a grey car several yards ahead.
The incident appeared to have occurred along a leafy country road, thought to be in Ireland.
Filming after the accident, the champion Irish mixed martial artist appeared breathless and shaken.
At one point the video shows McGregor’s ripped cycling pants and what looks to be a wound on his upper leg.
The man who appeared to be in the car can be heard apologising to McGregor.
McGregor says: ‘All good mate, all good. Don’t worry about it.’
He adds, ‘I could have been dead’, but he tells the man ‘all good mate’.
‘I’m totally sorry – seriously,’ the other man says.
The MMA champion wrote on his Instagram page: ‘Got a bang of a car just now from behind. A sun trap, the driver couldn’t see me.
‘Full spreed straight thru me. Thank you God, it wasn’t my time.
‘Thank you wrestling and judo also. Having an awareness on the landing saved my life.
