After a considerable absence, the arena has been missing the electrifying presence of Conor McGregor, known for driving the crowd to a deafening 107dB and creating an atmosphere akin to a rock concert. McGregor famously referred to as “The Notorious,” has been absent from the MMA scene for two years, but his return is on the horizon as he prepares to face off against Michael Chandler.
McGregor’s notoriety extends beyond the Octagon, with a history of headline-grabbing incidents, including a recent NBA-related accusation and the infamous bus altercation with Khabib Nurmagomedov. Additionally, he made headlines for punching an elderly man at an Irish pub. Let’s delve into the specifics and explore the details further.
Conor McGregor Assaulted Old Man At Ireland Bar
Back in 2019, at The Marble Arch Pub, an incident unfolded where McGregor threw a punch toward an older customer’s head. Reports suggest that McGregor walked in with the intention of buying a round of his Proper Twelve whiskey for everyone present. However, the elderly individual, depicted in the accompanying video, opted not to partake in the drink.
Despite several attempts, McGregor persistently offered the older man a drink and even placed a cup in front of him. However, tensions escalated when they exchanged words about the man declining the alcohol, ultimately leading to McGregor striking him in the head.
Surprisingly, the old gentleman who was on the receiving end of McGregor’s punch managed to maintain his seat, showing an admirable level of resilience that seems to be characteristic of the Irish. This video only adds to the mounting proof of McGregor’s tendency to lose his temper and display unsavory behavior beyond the MMA arena.
As per reports, the UFC legend made it clear that the man in question is not welcome at the pub. Rumor has it that McGregor is delving into a significant investment of around 1.5 to 2 million euros to make the establishment his own. But it’s not known if he actually did this or not. And this is what the incident is all about.
