TMZ-Conor McGregor uncorked a shot to the head of an elderly man in an Irish bar in a dispute over whiskey — Conor’s whiskey — and TMZ Sports got this video showing the violence.
The absurd attack went down at The Marble Arch Pub in Dublin on April 6. Conor walked in and lined up cups for bar patrons … looking to buy a round of his Proper Twelve for everyone. The problems started when the guy opted out. Conor placed a cup in front of him not once, but twice … and he still refused.
Unclear if words were exchanged between them, but 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.
Two people immediately grabbed McGregor and pulled him out of the bar. The violence was reported to cops, who announced back in April they’d opened an investigation. It’s unclear if that’s still active, but there are no reports Conor was ever charged — even though cops have reportedly seen this video.
I think we can all agree that Conor McGregor is a piece of shit. He's like a human pitbull. Everyone says but he's a really nice guy and he's so sweet and he would never do anything bad but then you get him a little bit of whiskey in him and pitbull McGregor comes out. I mean he just cold cocked that old man at a bar. That's a cheap shot. Only pussies do that. I think it goes without saying but McGregor needs to be behind bars in a cage like most pitbulls do. It's in their DNA. Once a fighter always a fighter.

Conor McGregor, the little cocky Irish mick, brought his A game in trash talking to his Floyd Mayweather fight press conference today. Not only did he win the battle of the mouths at the mic with Pretty Boy he also clearly won the wardrobe style with this classic pinstripes suit with the not so subtle "Fuck You" written all over it. McGregor may be little in stature but he's got the balls of a heavyweight champion. I would still be surprised if he lasted more than 4 rounds vs Mayweather. For entertainment purposes I hope I'm wrong.
Conor McGregor posted this Floyd Mayweather knockout picture on his Instagram with the caption "I'm a filthy Irish animal." You gotta love the confidence of McGregor going into his first boxing fight with a guy in Mayweather who has never been knocked down much less lost a fight. The 28-year-old Fighting Irishman is a massive Vegas underdog and for good reason: it's a boxing match, not a MMA event. Can McGregor get close enough to Pretty Boy to even land his left hand hook? I'm not sure. Mayweather is the king of not taking a punishing blow. He bobs and weaves like a rabbit being chased by a cheetah. But if anyone can deliver a devastating KO punch it's McGregor.
