UFC fighter ‘Conor McGregor’ sucker-punches an elderly man in the face in a Dublin pub for refusing to take a shot of whiskey


Conor McGregor sucker-punched an elderly grey-haired man in a Dublin pub after the customer refused to do a shot of whiskey with him, footage of the incident revealed today.

The ex-UFC champion was caught on CCTV in the Marble Arch pub in the Irish capital on April 6 pouring shots of his Proper Twelve whiskey – a brand which he founded and owns – for those sitting at the bar.

But after one man twice rejected his offer, McGregor threw a vicious jab into his face which caught him on the cheek, leaving onlookers stunned.

Despite being punched by one of MMA’s most high-profile fighters, the man, thought to be in his 60s, remained on his stool. 

In fact, he took the punch better than many of McGregor’s opponents and hardly reacted.  


McGregor was immediately dragged away by the security team he was drinking with. 

The fight was reported to police at the time, but new details emerged today after TMZ published footage of the altercation. 

Speaking today, the Garda told Mail Online: ‘Investigations ongoing in relation to this incident and no arrests have been made to date.
