Conor McGregor may have put his troubles with the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) behind him, reducing his $75,000 bottle-throwing fine to $25,000, but the Irishman could be facing legal action from a UK-based luxury car hire company after he was pictured standing on one of their Rolls-Royce vehicles.

The Liverpool Echo reports that Platinum Executive Travel (PET) are investigating the matter and deciding on whether or not to take legal against 'The Notorious'. The car is believed to be worth £240,000 and PET are assessing the Rolls-Royce for any damage.

McGregor was partying in Liverpool for last weekend's Grand National festival, and a representative from PET said that the UFC lightweight champion had no right to treat the car as if it were his own property.

“He is stood on the car acting like it is his own. It is not his own.”

The issue came to light when 'Lord' Aleem Iqbal responded to McGregor's Instagram post: “When you own one Conor you can stand on it like Floyd until then you can lose your deposit for standing on mine."

Iqbal's father, Saleem, is reported to be the owner of the car hire firm.

PET is outraged by McGregor's disrespectful behavior and have stated that the mixed martial arts star will not be booking any of their luxury vehicles in the future.
