Conor McGregor avoids serious injuries after being struck by a car while riding his bike: ‘I could have been dead there’


Conor McGregor was struck by a car while riding his bike on Friday in Ireland but it appears the UFC superstar avoided any serious injuries.

The 34-year-old fighter posted photos and a video on Instagram showing the aftermath of a car striking his bike after the driver was unable to see him in the road due to the sun shining back in his eyes.

“Have just seen a big car from behind,” McGregor wrote. The driver didn’t even see me. Full speed straight through me. It wasn’t mine time, thank you God. Thank you wrestling and judo also. Having an awareness on the landing saved my life.”

McGregor posted a photo of his mangled bike that looked to take the brunt of the damage after he was struck by the vehicle.

In the video, McGregor could be heard telling the driver “all good, don’t worry about it” after he was knocked off his bike while adding “I could have been dead there.”

The driver ended up putting McGregor’s bike in the back of his car and gave him a ride home with the former two-division UFC champion saying “I’m still here … thank God.”

McGregor has posted videos of himself riding his bike on roads over the years.

McGregor seemed to be in good spirits despite the fact that he did not suffer any severe injuries from this incident. However, McGregor was definitely scared after being knocked off his bicycle by the vehicle.
