A Dublin, Ireland pub owned by Conor McGregor was the target of a firebomb attack on Wednesday.

Per a report by Ireland’s The Mirror, The Black Forge Inn was hit with petrol bombs after hours on Wednesday — what might better be known as Molotov cocktails to many readers.

No injuries were reported, and McGregor was reportedly not on site. Two additional incendiary devices were found at the scene. Irish police are investigating.

In a statement, the pub’s management wrote that “After hours last night it appears that criminals made an unprovoked effort to inflict damage to the Black Forge Inn.

“There was no damage done to any patrons, employees or the Forge and Mr. McGregor was not on the premises at the time of the incident. The gardai [national police service] have opened an investigation into the event. We are open and busy as always.”

McGregor purchased the establishment in 2019, and it was recently renovated.

The former UFC double champ launched his whisky label, Proper 12, in 2018, named for the postal district of Crumlin, Dublin where McGregor grew up. The Black Forge Inn rests in that very same district.

McGregor (22-6) last competed in July, suffering a broken leg in the rubber match of his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier.
