A troubling video has surfaced showing UFC star Conor McGregor punching an elderly man at a Dublin bar.
Conor McGregor is in trouble again. The former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion was caught on video punching an elderly man at a bar in Ireland. TMZ Sports were the first to get hold of the video, which relates to a previously reported incident.
The altercation reportedly went down at the Marble Arch Pub in Dublin on April 6. The video shows McGregor arrive at the establishment and offer to buy a round of his Proper Twelve whiskey for the patrons. Notorious is seen lining up glasses in front of the patrons but one elderly man refuses the gesture. The man moves the glass away from him and then McGregor moves it back in front of him. Moments after the man refuses to drink, McGregor winds up and blasts the man in the side of the head with a punch while the man isn’t even looking in the MMA fighter’s direction. Three other patrons grab the MMA superstar and escort him out of the bar.
Local police have reportedly seen the video. There are no reports that charges have been brought against the SBG Ireland team member.
McGregor has been involved in a slew of run-ins with the law recently. He was arrested by New York City police back in April 2018 when he threw a moving dolly through a bus window after the media day at UFC 223. The Irish fighter arrived at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn looking to confront undefeated lightweight and now current champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov due to the Russian having a run in with McGregor’s teammate, Artem Lobov. The Eagle was inside the bus when McGregor attacked it with the dolly.
McGregor was arrested on charges of strong-armed robbery and criminal mischief this past March by Miami police for stealing and destroying a man’s phone. The victim reportedly was taking pictures of McGregor, which didn’t go over well with the former champion. Charges were later reduced and a civil suit dropped.
McGregor has not competed in the UFC since last October when he was defeated by Nurmagomedov by fourth-round submission.
