    Conor McGregor has been hit by a car which went "through" him and admitted that "I could have been dead".

    The UFC fighter revealed details of his nasty accident in an Instagram post on Friday as he shared a snap of his mangled bike and a clip of himself after the accident. Explaining what happened, he wrote: "Got a bang of a car just now from behind. A sun trap, the driver couldn’t see me.

    "Full spreed straight thru me. Thank you God, it wasn’t my time. Thank you wrestling and judo also. Having an awareness on the landing saved my life."

    Alongside an image of the damaged bike laying in the centre of a country road, McGregor also attached a video of himself speaking to the driver.

    McGregor also filmed himself in the car with the driver, who introduces himself to the camera as Nick, after the incident as he added: “Nick’s done smacked with his car. We’ve got the bike in the back. Was nae fine Nick. All the best, God bless.”

    Who should Conor McGregor's next opponent be? Let us know in the comments section below.

    The Notorious one is currently preparing for a long-awaited return to the Octagon, having not fought since breaking his leg in his trilogy bout with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in July 2021.

    His time away from the UFC has been far from quiet, though, with McGregor teasing an appearance in the Power Slap League and mocking Jake Paul on social media for his new MMA fight deal.

    After almost two years out of action, McGregor appears set to return this year and has hinted he could appear as a coach on the UFC's The Ultimate Fighter reality show.

    The 34-year-old, who starred as a coach on the show during his time as UFC interim featherweight champion, revealed this week that he had been offered the role once again.

    Former UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson has since implied that he would be facing off as the rival coach to McGregor during a season of the show.
