UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor has had his speeding case adjourned for a second time after failing to appear in court this morning.

The 'Notorious' star was due to appear in Blanchardstown District Court today to face an alleged speeding offence.

It is alleged that he was travelling in excess of the speed limit on the Naas Road, Dublin on March 31 this year.

Earlier this month his case was adjourned after Conor McGregor's representatives informed the court that he was out of the country.

When the case was called today, the UFC star's business manager Alan Geraghty told the court that Mr McGregor will accept any fine imposed.

Mr Geraghty said that Conor McGregor sent back the fixed charge notice, but forgot to put his driving licence number on it.

However, the presiding judge said that if he wanted to make that case, Mr McGregor should come to court or send a legal representative, before adjourning the case to November 30.
