However, outside of the Octagon, he’s gone a bit wayward in recent times, with this video of him appearing to punch a man in the head while in an Irish pub further proof of that.
According to TMZ, the incident took place at The Marble Arch Pub in Dublin on 6 April, but CCTV footage has only just emerged and been obtained by the website.
They claim that the McGregor came into the pub and lined up glasses for patrons at the bar, intending to fill each with free shot of his own whiskey, Proper Twelve.
One guy opted out with Conor placing a cup in front of him twice, yet he still refused.
After Conor downed a shot with the other drinkers, he unexpectedly threw his notorious left fist and decked the old man who rejected the shot.
That left hand of Conor’s has dusted the likes of Chad Mendes and Jose Aldo and yet that old bloke in a pub was completely non-plussed.
Sign him up, Dana!
Two people immediately grabbed McGregor and pulled him out of the bar during the incident which happened back in April.
According to the Irish Mirror at the time, Gardai (the state police force of the Republic of Ireland) confirmed they were investigating an alleged assault at the pub.
One local punter told the publication: “There was a bit of a commotion, he [McGregor] was acting the mick and there was an incident.
“There weren’t many people in the bar at the time, there was drink involved.
“The man that was allegedly assaulted is from Ballyfermot and drinks in the pub a good bit.”
Another person told the newspaper: “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.”
As I say, Conor has become “Notorious” – get it – for his escapades outside the Octagon of late, smashing a phone of a man’s hand in Miami while before that smashing a bus window with a load of UFC fighters on it.
Conor, you’re a UFC legend, stop dicking about with this nonsense and get back to fighting.
Preferably against Masvidal – which would be incredible.
