Conor McGregor reportedly 'flees Ireland' in the wake of threat from 'three gangsters he beat up'
Judging by his most recent antics, it appears that Conor McGregor is ready for a return to the fight game. The Irish born fighter, who hasn't had a scrap since his rumble with Floyd Mayweather in August, has been caught up in more than one violent altercation in the last month, but his most recent tear up could have the most serious consequences.
Police in Ireland have been made aware of allegations that Conor Mcgregor was involved in an altercation in a Dublin pub. Witnesses to the alleged confrontation have been vocal on social media when describing the brawl, which apparently took place between McGregor and three other men who are said to have close links to criminal activity.
According to reports, the alleged fight took place inside of The Black Forge in Crumlin, the suburb of Dublin where McGregor is from.
Lisa Leonard, one of those who claims to have been at the scene of the fight, captured a selfie with the UFC champion, saying:
"What a w***er
"Always honoured his loyalty...until tonight...he came into his 'local' and he started on some poor innocent kid. punching him. I really hope it turns out that we got the wrong end of the stick. But I doubt it".
McGregor was seen by fans entering the pub on Sunday night and it is alleged that a scrap unfolded after McGregor, a younger man, a man in his 50s, and an unidentified man had a disagreement. According to the Irish Independent, the sports star attempted to assault a man in the pub, when someone tried to intervene before getting punched in the face.
The man in his 50s who was involved in the brawl is said to have close links with a convicted drug dealer and is associated with an infamous gang. It is believed that they are now demanding a huge sum of money in order to prevent further violence.
A Facebook post describing the reported incident said:
"Connor McGregor kicked off last night in Dublin thinking he was the big b*llocks and got into a fight, then battered three heavy Irish gangsters and one of their dads, who now want 900k off him.
"He flew out of the country first thing in the morning.
"He either pays up or pays someone to kill them or his family will probably get it haha [sic]".
The Gardai in Dublin have said that they are aware of the incident, but that they have received no complaints regarding the fight and have no further comment.
"There is no report on this matter and no complaint from any injured parties, patrons of the pub or the pub itself and no statements were taken."
Despite there being no complaint so far, Police do believe the incident is related to another assault which was carried out earlier this month.
Whether there is more to this story or not, it's pretty stupid behavior from McGregor, whatever the case. In the position he is in, he should be aware that people will try and antagonize him, it's on him not to react.
