UFC star Conor McGregor has reportedly traveled to the Bahamas to relax following his recent arrest in New York.

According to TMZ, the Irishman flew to the islands Saturday after receiving permission from his bail bondsman.

"Because of his pending criminal charges against him in the bus attack case, Conor needed his bail bondsman to approve travel plans before leaving the country," read the report from TMZ. "We spoke with Conor's bondsman, Ira Judelson, who told us he did in fact sign off on McGregor to travel—but wouldn't confirm the destination to TMZ."
