It remains to be seen when and who Conor McGregor will fight in the Octagon next, but in the meantime, a video has emerged that allegedly shows the star throwing a punch… outside of the cage.
New video emerges of McGregor allegedly punching elderly man
As you can see by watching the video below, TMZ has acquired footage that shows a man, who looks a lot like McGregor, sucker punching an elderly man in a pub. According to the report from TMZ, at the alleged incident took place earlier this year on April 6th, at the The Marble Arch Pub in Dublin. The report states that McGregor began offering people shots of his whiskey, but that the man he allegedly struck, turned down the offer and words were exchanged.
The report says that authorities are looking into the incident, but no charges have been filed yet.
It’s the latest incident allegedly involving McGregor
If you’ve followed McGregor in recent years, then you know the former featherweight and lightweight champ has ran into trouble with the law before. There was the now infamous, dolley throwing incident in April, 2018, and earlier this year, McGregor was arrested in Miami, after he grabbed a man’s phone out of his hands and smashed it. Those charges were eventually dropped (and McGregor settled a civil suit regarding the incident).
Although this wasn’t a criminal case, in November, 2017, McGregor jumped the cage at a Bellator event, and had a confrontation with the referee. So, this latest alleged incident is only going to further speculation about the star’s mindset.
McGregor hasn’t fought now since last October, when he was submitted by lightweight champ, Khabib Nurmagomedov. Prior to that, in 2017, he was stopped by undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match.
