Staff at an Irish pub in Florida have blacklisted MMA star Conor McGregor and his products, having marked the occasion by pouring bottles of his whiskey down the toilet and flushing it down the drain.
The ban on all things McGregor comes after footage emerged that appeared to show the Irishman lashing out at a stranger in the Marble Arch pub on 6 April this year.
Reports claim McGregor had gone into the pub and offered out free shots of his whiskey, only for one man to opt out, twice rejecting the glass put in front on him - a move that apparently angered the UFC star, who allegedly then threw a punch at the man, hitting his head before two people pulled him away.
Condemning McGregor's alleged actions, bar manager Sean Rice wrote on Facebook: "Official Notice: Due to the recent cowardly and appalling behavior of the so-called Irish professional fighter Conor McGregor, the Salty Shamrock Irish Pub will no longer carry his product nor associate its business with his name.
"We will discard his whiskey in a fashion that's only fitting to his behavior.
"I challenge every Irish bar owner to do the same! He is not a true representative of the Irish people."
This was followed up by a Facebook Live video showing staff following through in the promise, pouring several bottles of McGregor's whiskey, Proper Twelve, down the toilet.
Speaking on The Jim Rome Show earlier this week, White said: "That happened in April. I knew that happened; they just got the video. It's pretty bad.
"Not allegedly, it's pretty clear [it's him]. So, apparently this was in a pub in Ireland and it was an argument over whiskey. Conor has a whiskey now and it was an argument over the whiskey and Conor reaches out and hits him with a left hook.
"I don't know the context of it. I don't know the entire story, but he punches a guy, an older man, in the face.
"I knew that he had had an altercation at a bar, but I didn't know with who or any of that, I didn't know anything, I just knew it happened."
"This is very bad for sport. Some things he doing good for sport, but right now he without his mind. He lose his mind. It's crazy.
"Government have to smash him. This is my opinion. 'Cause I'm really, really mad about this video. I don't understand how you can punch old man."
LADbible contacted the Garda, who confirmed that an investigation into an incident was ongoing but no arrests had been made.
A spokesperson for the force said: "Gardaí are investigating an assault incident that occurred at a public house in Drimnagh, Dublin 12, on 6 April 2019 at approximately 2.30pm. Investigations ongoing in relation to this incident and no arrests have been made to date."
