UFC Champ Connor McGregor in a BMW i8 Brandishing a Gun?
Conor McGregor had a fantastic 2015. He knocked out Jose Aldo in 13 seconds to claim the featherweight title at UFC 194 and netted a ton of cash. Much of that he used to buy cars, including a BMW i8. This picture, posted on Instagram, looks to show the UFC champ in an i8 brandishing an impressive gun. We know McGregor owns an i8 after pictures surfaced of that purchase back in November. He shelled out over $450K for the i8 and a Mercedes S-Class before the match with Aldo. His confidence paid off when he won. RELATED: Conor McGregor Just Spent $450K on Two New Cars
The picture of what looks like McGregor with an automatic weapon sitting in the passenger seat of an i8 is not sitting well with local authorities. According to Deadspin, they are investigating the picture, which was posted by McGregor lending credence to the idea that it's him hidden behind the mask.

The local authorities released an official statement saying they're investigating the photo, presumbably to find out why anyone is driving the streets of Ireland in a mask sporting a gun with a silencer. He might be a UFC champion, but this kind of mischief could get him a lot more than 13 seconds of trouble.
