Today could’ve been a sad day as Conor McGregor could’ve lost his life.
The legendary UFC star says he avoided serious injury on Friday after being hit by a vehicle while riding his road bike. The former lightweight and featherweight champion posted a photo on social media, showing his bicycle lying in the middle of the road after he claims a car hit him “full speed” from behind.
“Got a bang of a car just now from behind,” he wrote in the caption of his Instagram post. “A sun trap, the driver couldn’t see me. Full speed straight thru me.”
“Thank you, God, it wasn’t my time,” he continued. “Thank you wrestling and judo also. Having an awareness on the landing saved my life.”
He would soon post a video where he can be seen pacing around in shock as he picked up some of his belongings.
“I could have been dead there,” he can be heard saying in the video.
This bike accident comes on the heels of McGregor being under investigation in Spain after being accused of physical assault in Ibiza.
McGregor hasn’t fought since suffering a serious leg injury during a loss to Dustin Poirier in July 2021.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
