Conor McGregor to be charged over alleged assault of man in Dublin pub after CCTV emerges online


UFC star Conor McGregor is to be charged over the alleged assault of a man in a pub.

Sensational CCTV emerged on TMZ yesterday of McGregor’s clash with the man at the Marble Arch boozer in Drimnagh, south Dublin, on April 6.

The video shows the fighter landing a blow on the drinker with his famous left jab, before he is ushered away by two of his minders.

The victim barely moves after the shock attack and appears to remain unflustered.

McGregor was unhappy when the older man told him “I don’t want your whiskey”, sources have told the Irish Sun.

The fighter faces a minor assault charge after the Director of Public Prosecutions ruled there was enough evidence to charge him.

He is to be summoned to appear at Dublin District Court to answer the charge. If convicted, he will be required to pay a fine for the offence.

The DPP made the ruling after investigators completed their probe after a complaint was made against the sports star.

It’s understood that the alleged victim has accused McGregor of assaulting him when he turned down the offer of a drink.
