Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor just got away with a serious accident. Recently, Conor has been in the headlines for a lot of wrong reasons. From fresh sexual assault accusations to getting sued by his former best friend Artem Lobov, Conor is going through a tough time.
However, McGregor could have been having a much worse time as he nearly escaped a fatal car crash. Recently, McGregor took to Instagram to share some harrowing details about an accident he had. Conor is famous for riding a bike to maintain his cardio. During one such stroll on his bike, a car almost ran him over.

Conor filmed the aftermath of the incident and shared how badly his bike was damaged during the whole ordeal. The bike was completely totaled. It just makes one wonder how horrific the situation could have been if Conor was hit by the car as well. Recently, boxing champion Errol Spence Jr also suffered a car accident, where he was thankfully unharmed.
Conor McGregor shares his first reaction after his nearly fatal car accident
In Conor’s latest accident, it was not a hit-and-run case. From the videos he shared, it seems clear that the driver was perhaps not at fault. The person in the driver’s seat was named Nick. He stuck around to check on Conor immediately afterward. Even though Conor was not physically hurt, it seemed like his trousers were torn as a result of the incident.
The driver even offered to help Conor after the accident. He also apologized for what happened time and time again and also gave Conor a lift. While Conor is known for being hot-headed, he was uncharacteristically calm. The 34-year-old was just glad to escape without any major injuries. He could also be heard saying, “I’m still here, thank god. That’s all that matters.”

In terms of his career, Conor McGregor has recently wrapped up shooting for his debut movie, the “Road House” remake. However, there is no word on the exact release date of the movie. But it is expected that the movie will come out sometime later this year in 2023. After years of smashing his opponents in the Octagon, McGregor is looking to smash some box-office records as well.
But fans may also want to know what is next in his fighting career. As things stand, Conor is out of the sport and his unavailability in the USADA testing pool means Conor will not be able to fight till the second half of 2023. While there are rumors of a big bout against Jorge Masvidal, no official confirmation about his next opponent is available.
