Conor McGregor will face no charges from Irish authorities after he posted a photo featuring an airsoft gun a couple of weeks ago that could have potentially landed him in hot water.
McGregor immediately apologized after police were notified and began to look into the matter because of Ireland's strict gun laws that make brandishing a firearm -- even a pellet gun -- possibly illegal.
FOX Sports first reported that McGregor was cooperating with police and wasn't expected to face any charges from the incident, and TMZ confirmed with Irish authorities on Tuesday that the investigation was officially closed.
