Remember when footage was shared of Conor McGregor appearing to punch a man who allegedly refused his whiskey back in 2019?
Well, the MMA fighter has returned the the scene of the incident... and bought it. Not only that, he's already barred the bloke he whacked. Talk about a double blow.
McGregor, 32, has apparently forked out somewhere between $2 million and $2.5 million (£1.4m to £1.8m) on the Marble Arch in Dublin.
The purchase came as McGregor continues to expand his business interests in the area and let's face it, the fella's got enough dosh.
Confirming the news, McGregor shared a story from The Currency on Twitter, alongside the message: "Ye and your mans barred." So there's that then.
Responding to his tweet, one person wrote: "U got to be kidding me, he was seated with his back turned- maybe he didn't want the whiskey or any unwanted interaction at all. There is no excuse for what Conner did plain and simple."
Another added: "Suppose you've got to admire the f***ing cheekiness of it. You're just not a**ed are yeh?"
And a third commented: "Not being fussed about assaulting an old man is something to admire. Its just disgusting behaviour."
The video appeared to show McGregor assaulting the man, who was sitting up at the bar and allegedly refused to have a drink of his whiskey.
Following the incident, Conor apologised for his actions in an interview with ESPN, saying: "That man deserved to enjoy his time in the pub without having it end the way it did.
"I tried to make amends and I made amends back then. But it doesn't matter. I was in the wrong. I must come here before you and take accountability and take responsibility." Seems to have changed his tune now.
He went on: "Whatever comes my way, I will face it. Whatever comes my way, I deserve it.
"People are trying to bait me into things. Am I the fish or am I the whale? I must be calm, I must be zen. I must lead by example.
"I will face this head on. I will not hide from it. I was in the wrong. It was completely unacceptable behaviour for a man in my position."
