Bar fights are never fun. This is particularly true in the case of a man who was seen being punched by Conor McGregor in footage that appeared last week. The man has since come out with statements in regards to his feelings towards the MMA superstar.
An incident, reportedly taking place on April 6th at the Marble Arch Pub in Dublin has since been backed up with the appearance of some footage that could incriminate the famed MMA fighter. This isn’t the first time McGregor has been caught by cameras causing a scene, and it definitely reinforces the idea that he is quick to anger and potentially dangerous to be around.
You would never think that refusing a drink at the bar would land you in trouble, but apparently to Conor this is quite a sign of disrespect. After refusing a glass of his Proper Twelve Whiskey, the man was seen receiving a swift one to the side of the head in the footage that appeared last week.
McGregor was swiftly dragged away from the situation.
The alleged ‘victim’ has come out with some statements in regards to his feelings towards the fighter.
In an interview with the Irish Daily Star, the man who is remaining unnamed had this to say in regards to the initial blow: “I can take a punch. It was sore for about a week. It wasn’t killing me or anything”
The 50 year-old man was reportedly assaulted after refusing to drink a glass of McGregor’s Proper No. Twelve Irish Whiskey. Which apparently struck a nerve with the athlete, as he did in fact have a hand in it’s creation.
The man went on to say this about McGregor, “I don’t like the man. I think he is getting a bad rep. He is a bit of a bully, a bully with money”
So the next time you’re being offered Irish whiskey by an Irish man in an Irish pub, maybe just take the shot.
