Former UFC two-weight champion Conor McGregor narrowly escaped serious injury after being hit by a car during his daily bike ride.
“I just got hit by a car from behind. The driver is not to blame – he was blinded by the sun. He drove into me at full speed. Thank God my time has not yet come. Thanks to wrestling and judo – the ability to fall saved my life, ”the Irish fighter wrote on the social network.
According to the released video, McGregor’s bike and pants were severely damaged, while he himself received no visible damage.
The frightened driver, to whom the star Irishman, apparently, had no complaints, drove the former UFC champion home.
“Nick hit me and now he’s taking me home with the bike. Thank God I’m still here and that’s the only thing that matters,” McGregor said in the video.
On the eve of Conor McGregor, recovering from a severe leg fracture in a fight against Dustin Poirier, announced that he was offered to become a coach for the next season of The Ultimate Fighter, which will start filming in the near future.
