Conor McGregor is reportedly once again on the wrong side of the law.
According to the Irish Mirror, McGregor is under investigation for allegedly punching a man in a Dublin bar. The former UFC champion was reportedly at the Marble Arch pub on Saturday after attending an amateur fight card at the Green Isle Hotel in Clondalkin, Dublin, one day prior.
According to a Mirror source, the incident occurred due to because “McGregor was being a show off in the pub and one man didn’t like it and went up to have a word with him.” Another source claims that prior to the incident McGregor was approached by a patron who commented on the fighter’s loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229, saying, “The Russian battered you.” It is unclear if that is the same man McGregor allegedly hit.
A Garda (Irish police) spokesperson released the following statement: “Gardaí are investigating an incident at a pub in Drimnagh, Dublin on April 6, 2019. No arrests have been made. Investigations are ongoing.”
According to TMZ Sports, an employee at the Marble Arch pub hung up when an inquiry was made about McGregor’s involvement.
McGregor is also reportedly under investigation in Ireland for an alleged sexual assault that occurred this past December. The “Notorious” also has an arraignment scheduled this week for allegedly stealing and destroying a man’s cell phone outside a Miami nightclub last month.
