Irish bar blacklists Conor McGregor and pours his whisky down the toilet
An Irish bar in the state of Florida has blacklisted the MMA star, Conor McGregor, and his line of alcoholic beverages, following allegations that he got violent with a stranger in the Mable Arch pub, Dublin, on the 6th of April this year.
Staff at the Salty Shamrock went so far as to pour bottles of McGregor's whisky down the toilet, and flush it down the drain.
This comes after a video, which has been doing the rounds on social media, reportedly showed the former Ultimate Fighting Championship featherweight engaging in an altercation with another customer while drinking in the pub.
Per TMZ Sports, McGregor allegedly punched the elderly man after he refused to drink a round of drinks that he had bought customers in the establishment. The victim declined a shot of McGregor's signature single malt, Proper Twelve, twice, before McGregor purportedly lost his temper and hit him
Watch this video of Conor being released from jail in Miami after a prior arrest:
Manager of the Salty Shamrock, Sean Rice, took to Facebook to condemn McGregor's alleged behaviour. "Official Notice: Due to the recent cowardly and appalling behavior of the so-called Irish professional fighter Conor McGregor, the Salty Shamrock Irish Pub will no longer carry his product nor associate its business with his name," he wrote.
"We will discard his whiskey in a fashion that's only fitting to his behavior. I challenge every Irish bar owner to do the same! He is not a true representative of the Irish people."
This was accompanied by a Facebook Live which showed staff pouring several bottles of McGregor's whiskey, Proper Twelve, down the toilet.
UFC boss, Dana White, recently issued comment on the purported incident. Speaking on The Jim Rome Show earlier this week, White asserted: "That happened in April. I knew that happened; they just got the video. It's pretty bad."
"Not allegedly, it's pretty clear [it's him]. So, apparently this was in a pub in Ireland and it was an argument over whiskey. Conor has a whiskey now and it was an argument over the whiskey and Conor reaches out and hits him with a left hook. I don't know the context of it. I don't know the entire story, but he punches a guy, an older man, in the face."

"I knew that he had had an altercation at a bar, but I didn't know with who or any of that, I didn't know anything, I just knew it happened."
