Conor McGregor has paid a small fine (by his standards) after strikingly an elderly patron at an Irish pub earlier this year.

In the end, all Conor McGregor will face in terms of punishment after assaulting a man in an Irish pub is a small fine. On Friday, the Associated Press (via MMA Junkie) reported that McGregor had been fined 1,000 euros ($1,120) following the incident, which transpired earlier this year. Video showing McGregor striking an older gentleman was widely circulated online.

“I assure you nothing of this nature will happen again,” McGregor reportedly told the judge in the case during his appearance at the Dublin District Court.

But can you trust him? McGregor has been involved in numerous incidents out of the cage in recent years, including the infamous UFC 223 bus attack, the UFC 229 brawl, a pair of sexual assault allegations, and accusations that he smashed a man’s cell phone.

Maybe he should narrow down what he means by “of this nature.”

McGregor has widely been reported to be aiming at a January 18, 2020 return to the octagon, if the UFC can get a deal done. Among the candidates for his return opponent, none other than Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone. Whether he makes it to that date even if a deal gets done is another matter.
