According to the Irish Mirror, the 30-year-old former UFC double champion was involved in a skirmish with a man in the Marble Arch pub in Dublin on Saturday.
Sources told the paper that McGregor lashed out following a verbal exchange, during which one pubgoer taunted him by saying “the Russian battered you”, an apparent reference to the fighter’s defeat to UFC lightweight champion Nurmagomedov.
“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,” the Mirror reported, citing a source.
He said: “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.”
The Notorious had been out partying after attending an amateur fight night in the nearby Green Isle Hotel in Clondalkin, Dublin, on Friday night.
The hotel posted on their Facebook page that they were “delighted to welcome Conor McGregor”.
The 30-year-old has been in the wars with the law in recent months.
In a statement to the Irish Mirror last night, a Garda spokesperson said: “Gardaí are investigating an incident at a pub in Drimnagh, Dublin on April 6, 2019.
“No arrests have been made. Investigations are ongoing.”
McGregor has been back in his homeland after a lengthy stay in the US, and attended an amateur fight night in the Irish capital on Friday night.
At the end of March it was reported that he was being investigated by Irish police over sexual assault allegations from December of last year. McGregor’s team have rejected the claims.
Meanwhile, McGregor’s return to MMA is still unclear.
I don’t think anyone knows what’s going on with McGregor.
Not even himself.
