Conor McGregor’s traffic stop this past March, which saw him briefly taken into custody, has resulted in six traffic violations being issued against him.

The Irish star appeared in court Wednesday morning, answering a pair of dangerous driving counts stemming from the incident in Dublin on March 22. An additional four charges were laid at the courthouse: driving without a license and insurance as well as failing to produce a license and insurance.

News of the additional charges was reported by Dublin Live.

While McGregor did not speak during the hearing, his lawyer, Michael Staines, stated that McGregor had shown both his license and insurance to the gardai (Irish police).

Leaving the courthouse Wednesday, McGregor said he would be going “straight back to training.” The former UFC featherweight and lightweight double-champ has not fought since breaking his leg in the rubber match of his trilogy with Dustin Poirier last July.

No timetable is set for his return, but a fall date has been rumored to be a possibility. While bouts with Poriier or Nate Diaz remain a possibility, of late, the Irish fighter has spoken of a possible welterweight run, with Kamaru Usman in mind.

Conor McGregor will appear back in the same court in June, after being remanded on bail.
