It’s been confirmed that Gardai are investigating a photo of UFC champ Conor McGregor wearing a balaclava and brandishing a replica gun, which he posted on social media.

The photo shows Conor posing in the front seat of his snazzy BMW i8 car, and he appears to be holding what is believed to be a replica machine pistol as he leans out the window.

The top athlete posted the controversial snap at approximately 2am on Thursday, captioning it ‘Put the fight game in the bag and step away from the vechicle’.

The pic was taken as the Dubliner enjoys some time at home with his friends and family after his epic win against Brazilian Jose Aldo in Vegas last month, claiming him the the UFC World Featherweight title.

According to Independent.ie, a garda spokesperson commented: “We are investigating the circumstances under which the photo was taken. Gardai from Crumlin are investigating.”

A spokesperson for the UFC and Conor’s spokesperson have yet to respond.
