Conor McGregor victim speaks out after being barred from Dublin boozer

"I wouldn’t want to be spending money in his pub to be honest."

In 2019, Conor McGregor was seen on video punching a man after turning down a shot of his 'Proper 12' whiskey.

The former two-division UFC champion pleaded guilty to assaulting Desmond Keogh at Dublin's Marble Arch.

He was forced to pay at €1,000 fine for his actions.

Fast forward two years and McGregor is the new owner of the boozer, according to The Currency.

Confirming the news, McGregor responded in a tweet by saying 'Ye and your man's barred'.

Despite the news, it appears Keogh, 50, will be going nowhere near the pub any time soon,.

"I'm not really concerned because I probably wouldn't be going back to it now,' he told Irish Live.

"I wouldn't be going back anyway, probably especially now.

"I wouldn't want to be spending money in his pub to be honest."

On McGregor's tweet, he added: "I didn't really make much of it. It's no skin off my nose really.

"The past is in the past. It's all done and dusted two years ago this month.

"He had to go to court and he pleaded guilty.

"I've a lot of friends there. I probably drank there for about 14 years.

"The fact that he was in the wrong you know why blame me? It seems weird to me.

McGregor looking to avenge Poirier defeat

The Notorious will return to the UFC octagon this summer against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.

McGregor, who defeated Nate Diaz in their 2016 rematch, is aiming to avenge his devastating second round knockout loss to the American in Las Vegas.

The pair are currently 1-1 going into the trilogy bout with McGregor claiming victory in their 2014 showdown, which lasted just 106 seconds.

"July 10th you're gonna see what the Mac is about. Adjust and absolutely f*cking destroy," McGregor said.

A potential crossover fight with Jake Paul, who defeated Ben Askren inside the first round, looks unlikely with McGregor distancing himself from it.
