Conor McGregor allegedly punches man in the face for refusing drink
Picture this: You're at a pub and someone offers you a free drink and you politely turn them down because you already have one, it will probably result in you striking up a conversation thanking the person and going off on your merry way. Never once in this senario does it result in getting smacked in the face.
Fans of Conor McGregor are aghast at the recently published TMZ video of the incident that occured in April 2019, where in the video McGregor at a pub in Ireland, takes a swipe at the man for refusing his drink and apparently according to reports calling his drink "sh*t".
According to the Sun, the incident occured at a Marble Arch pub in Drimnagh, south Dublin, on April 6.
UFC's Dana White commented on the incident and has said that it doesn't show the star in a good light.

TakSport quoted White as saying: "“Not allegedly, it’s pretty clear [it’s him]. So apparently this was in a pub in Ireland and it was an argument over [a drink].
“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.”"
This is not the first time McGregor has been in the news for assault either.
In March this year, McGregor was arrested on strong-armed robbery and criminal mischief charges for smashing the cellphone of someone who was trying to take his photo, according to authorities.
Miami Beach Police report, according to ESPN detailed that McGregor was leaving the Fontainebleau Miami Beach shortly after 5 a.m. when a 22-year-old man attempted to take a picture of him. Police said McGregor slapped the phone out of the man's hand and then stomped on it several times. Investigators said McGregor then grabbed the phone and left the area.
The Irishman was released on $12,500 bail later that same night.
In same same interview, referencing another incident, White said: “The incident in New York cost him millions. Millions he had to pay out. He had to pay the guy with the phone. What’s he going to pay this guy that he hit in the bar? The list just goes on and on. I just don’t know when he wakes up and says ‘I’ve got to stop doing this’.”

His fans on soacial media have urged the star to undergo anger management issues. But whether the star will heed the advice of fans and his own advisors is yet to be seen.
