UFC Featherweight champion Conor McGregor is under investigation in Ireland for a photo he posted on Instagram that appears to depict him holding an automatic rifle. The Notorious is back in Dublin and has the Gardai looking into whether the weapon is real or a replica.

McGregor’s next fight takes place at UFC 197 on March 5th when he moves up a weight class in hopes of dethroning UFC Lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos.
