UFC Fighter Conor McGregor Caught Punching Elderly Man In Irish Bar For Rejecting A Free Shot
If you're already out having a couple of drinks, then my guess is you'd rarely say no to a free round a shots, especially if they come hand-delivered to you by one of the most famous sports stars in the world. That wasn't the case in The Marble Arch Pub in Dublin on 6 April when a patron turned down an offer of free Proper No. Twelve whiskey from Conor McGregor himself. As the Irishman encouraged everyone in around him to give his new drink a go, one older gentleman wasn't interested. Maybe he preferred vodka? Regardless, McGregor took offence to the rejection and seemed to react by throwing a punch at the poor bloke. Surprisingly, despite being hit by an ex-champion, he barely reacted. Fortunately, Conor's friends were quick to react and dragged the fighter out of the pub before he could do any serious damage.
You can quite clearly see the shocked reactions of those around him, including the barmaid who immediately puts her hands to her face.
The incident was allegedly reported to the police, however there are no reports that McGregor has been charged for the offence. Perhaps the man who got punched was just happy to come away with a story about the time he took a blow from a UFC fighter and didn't even flinch.

McGregor has recently retired from fighting in the ring and has instead revealing that he's been building several houses designated for families 'without a home to call their own'. He shared photos of the build via Facebook. McGregor wrote: "Back on the site today, it has been a while.
"This is my first property development. We have 8 homes here closing in on finish
"Three bedroom houses, designated for families that currently reside in hotels around the capital, without a home to call their own. But not for long. Through the storm comes the sun!
"Walking around this land and these homes today, meeting all the neighbours, knowing that soon there will be families living here, creating their own memories, and building back their lives, gives me great pride!
"Ireland forever! Ireland first! Ireland always!"
