“Got a bang of a car just now from behind. A sun trap, the driver couldn’t see me. Full speed 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,” McGregor explained.

In the video, the Irish-born fighter loudly said, “I could have been dead,” but overall, remained incredibly calm. He even told the driver it’s “all good.”

You can check out the damage and a video of his reaction below. He also shared a photo of his injuries that you can find on his Instagram.

Conor McGregor is a very lucky guy.

McGregor should have gone out and bought a lottery ticket as soon as he dusted himself off. He had a lot of luck on his side Friday, and he should have exploited it for everything it was worth.

Getting smoked by a car while on a bike is a great way to die. You have literally no protection and there’s nothing you can do to stop the speed of a car.

We’re talking about a bike that might weigh 50 pounds against a vehicle that weighs thousands. When Conor McGregor said he could have died, he definitely wasn’t kidding.

Also, for all the stories about how Conor McGregor can get a bit wild, he was shockingly calm. He got hit by a car and didn’t even really seem fazed.

I guess that’s what happens when you get punched in the face for a living. Your threshold for shock and pain become significantly higher than the average person.
