Conor McGregor may have secretly left the country…

A veteran Irish crime reporter believes Conor McGregor is in serious danger. Paul Williams said today that Conor’s life might be in jeopardy as a result of getting mixed up with a dangerous crime family.

Conor is believed to be the “well-known Irish sports celebrity” talked about in the media lately as having been involved in a brawl with Irish cartel members. Williams has expressed his belief that if Conor hasn’t fled Ireland already, he needs to do so ASAP.

“I just want to make a comment about this. Conor McGregor is potentially in very, very serious danger, I hear that from my sources and from looking at the lay of the land. He has ended up crossing swords- accidentally or however –  with some very, very heavy people, or some people who are related to some very, very heavy people who could pose a very serious threat to his safety, and potentially his life. And I don’t say that lightly.” – Paul Williams

Has Conor Angered the Wrong People?

Williams has said his sources are confirming the recent rumors and that Conor is the celebrity in question.

And these people, you have to remember – as I keep saying – they don’t care, they don’t have parameters, they don’t have boundaries, they don’t discriminate between whether you’re an international sporting icon or just a man on the street. They shoot you, they injure you, they do whatever they want to do.

I think it’s extraordinary. And I think in the next 24-48 hours, I believe that An Garda Síochána will be approaching Conor McGregor and saying to him, ‘By the way, we just want to officially inform you that potentially your safety is at risk’.

Irish Crime Reporter Believes Conor is in Danger

Paul Williams is a respected journalist in Ireland where he works for the Irish Sun. He has been covering crime in the country for nearly two decades.

I have to say about this, and I’m wearing my old, veteran crime reporter hat. Conor McGregor is in a very dangerous place at the moment. He has come into conflict through probably no fault of his own, with a group of very, very dangerous people who are tied up with the Kinahans. These people do not care who Conor McGregor is, what he stands for, how powerful he is, they will drag him down into the cesspit.

Is Conor McGregor Still in Ireland?

Williams had this to say regarding if Conor is still in the country and what will happen if he has yet to flee:

I would say, in the next 48 hours, if he still in the country – and I understand that he may have left the country – but if he is still in the country, I understand from my sources that the Garda will be approaching him to give him a GIM form, which is a Garda Information Message, to tell him that there may be threats to his safety. This is a huge story, and imagine what it would do to our reputation if this national sporting icon is attacked by a bunch of gangsters.
