MMA star Conor McGregor has been ordered to appear in court in Dublin next week to face a speeding charge or send a legal representative in his place.

The UFC lightweight champion did not attend Blanchardstown District Court this morning to face the alleged offence of speeding on 31 March on the Naas Road in Dublin.

The case had previously been adjourned on 6 November, when Mr McGregor was also absent from the court.

Today, his business manager, Alan Geraghty, told the judge he was representing Mr McGregor.

Mr Geraghty said Mr McGregor accepted the fine and said he returned the notice but did not have his driving licence number on it.

Judge Miriam Walsh said if any defendant wants to make an argument, that person must be attend court themselves or send a legal representative.

She adjourned the case until the 30 November.
