UFC Lightweight champion Conor McGregor was pictured at Leixlip Garda Station on Thursday when he posed with Sgt. David Hanrahan and Garda Steven Tyrrell for a picture at the station.

McGregor owns property in Straffan, Kildare, just 15 kilometres from Leixlip, where he was pictured smiling with Sgt. Hanrahan and Garda Tyrrell.

The Garda Info account posted the picture on Twitter on Friday with the caption: "Well known visitor at Leixlip Garda yesterday with Sgt. David Hanrahan and Gda. Steven Tyrrell. @TheNotoriousMMA."

Away from the cameras, and Garda stations too for that matter, McGregor is still awaiting American boxer Floyd Mayweather to sign his part of the contract for the two fighters multi-million dollar fight.

McGregor confirmed last month that he had signed his side of the agreement to fight Mayweather with the Dubliner confirming the news on his website The Mac Life.

“It is an honour to sign this record breaking deal alongside my partners Zuffa LLC, The Ultimate Fighting Championship and Paradigm Sports Management,” McGregor said.

“The first, and most important part of this historic contract has now officially been signed off on. Congratulations to all parties involved. We now await Al Haymon and his boxer’s signature in the coming days.”

In England last month for the Gervonta Davis and Liam Walsh fight, Mayweather refused to speak on the contract negotiations for the fight, despite being asked several times about his side of the agreement, with the 40-year-old stating that he's 90% sure that McGregor will be his next opponent.

"If I do fight, there's a 90 per cent chance it's against Conor McGregor," said Mayweather.

"When I get back to the US I'll call Al (Haymon, Mayweather's advisor) and see our next move. There's no rush.

"The only fight that makes sense to me is the McGregor fight. I guess I have one more obstacle that I have to get over.

"We have to give the people what they want to see. The fans demand that fight; we have to give them what they want to see to make them happy.

"I think this year I'll be back at number one in Forbes' (list of athletes' net worth), in a matter of time."
