UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor might be fighting more than Rafael dos Anjos in the coming months.
After posting a picture on his Instagram profile with him appearing to hold a gun:
"We are investigating the circumstances under which the photo was taken. Gardai from Crumlin are investigating," a Gardai spokesperson said.
McGregor has since apologized in another Instagram post.
5. Media instigators/An Garda Siochana. I apologise for having the air-soft in public. I was simply rehearsing for a potential upcoming film role. I understand that the more traffic a story can get the more revenue it generates. So I understand and respect that the media must create these stories and these situations even if at times it is at other people's expense. We've all got to eat. And I eat well. So I will not complain.
The featherweight champ is rumored to battle dos Anjos at 155 for the lightweight crown at UFC 197.
