If there is one thing Conor McGregor is really, really good at, it’s punching people. Case in point: this poor bloke enjoying a pint in a Dublin pub who became well-acquainted with McGregor’s fist after he refused a glass of his whisky.
Footage, obtained by TMZ, shows McGregor at the Marble Arch pub in April, excitedly pouring patrons glasses of his own brand of whisky. When an older man refuses, the 31-year-old MMA fighter launches at him, serving him a massive blow to the face.
The victim appears relatively unaffected by the blow, but McGregor is quickly ushered away by his entourage.
According to The Sun, McGregor was reported to the police and while he spoke to detectives about the incident, he was never formally arrested.
In the footage, McGregor goes from happy Irishman to the Hulk in 0.03 seconds, but are we really that surprised?
In 2017, McGregor jumped into the cage during his teammate Charlie Ward’s fight against John Redmond before it was officially over. He ended up pushing the referee, and slapping the commissioner, ending the fight early.
In 2018, the MMA fighter was charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief after he attacked opponents in a bus. The same year, McGregor was fined and banned from fighting after a scuffle broke out during a fight at UFC 229.
Earlier this year, he was arrested and charged with strong-armed robbery and criminal mischief after he allegedly took a man’s phone and smashed it on the ground. Oh, and let’s not forget the fact he’s under investigation for sexual assault.
After all of that, punching an old guy in an Irish pub seems like the least of McGregor’s worries. Conor – remember what they taught you at school – violence is not the answer…even if it is part of your job.
