Conor Mccregor is back


DUBLIN: When the world thinks the UFC superstar Conor Mccregor has been out of news, he appears once again. This time he has hit the headlines after an otherwise simple to a Dublin pub earlier in April resulted in him punching a local for not trying his own brand of whiskey.

In a footage report, McGregor appeared to arrive in the pub and purchased a bottle of his now-famous whiskey, Proper Twelve, before dishing out a host of cups for the locals sitting at the bar. However one man declined the offer of a free shot and that is when the ruckus ensued.

Sources reveal that the man in question had made a derogative remark about McGregor’s whiskey and said that he was glad that McGregor had been beaten by Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The remark provoked McGregor into throwing a punch at the side of his head, but did not knock him off his stool at the bar. As soon as McGregor threw the punch, he was grabbed by two men and dragged out of the pub.

The incident, which took place in April, had been reported to the police who opened an investigation, but no further news on charges has followed.

Conor Mccregor is believed to be in training for a late 2019 or early 2020 comeback. Who will be his most likely opponent will be determined by this weekend’s fight between Anthony Pettis and Nate Diaz at UFC 241, plus next month’s UFC lightweight title fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Dustin Poirier at UFC 242.
