Conor McGregor charged with assault after Dublin bar punch

Conor McGregor charged with assault after Dublin bar punch”

"In reality, it doesn't matter what happened there", McGregor said in his apology.

McGregor, the former UFC two-division champion, was formally served with a summons and is due in a Dublin court October 11 on the charge, McGregor spokesperson Karen Kessler confirmed with ESPN's Ariel Helwani. If convicted, the charge carries a maximum prison term of six months, a fine of $1,646, or both.

Irish Conor McGregor, former champion of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), may go to jail for assaulting an elderly man in a Dublin pub.

CCTV footage published by TMZ shows the 31-year-old landing a blow on the patron before being ushered away by his entourage.

The pub incident was not McGregor's first alleged run-in with authorities.

"I was in the wrong", McGregor said.

What do you think about Kavanagh's response to Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov? I owe it to the people that have been supporting me.

This isn't the first time McGregor has faced battles with the law after separate incidents unfolded in NY and Miami.

On July 26 previous year, McGregor escaped a criminal conviction in NY over a well-publicised fracas at a UFC promo event at Barclays Centre in Brooklyn.

McGregor appeared in a NY court for his role in the infamous UFC 229 melee at Brooklyn's Barclays Center in 2018.

The fighter - nicknamed "The Notorious" - had been charged with robbery by sudden-snatching and criminal mischief over an incident involving a fan in Miami. In April 2018, McGregor was arrested after he threw a hand truck through the window of a bus carrying UFC fighters in Brooklyn, which set his rivalry with lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov into overdrive.

"You get to the point where you look at a guy like Conor, and you look at the bus incident in NY, and the guy who took the picture of him in Miami and he slaps the phone - what's the number?" The champ's father would like to see this collision occur in Madison Square Garden in New York City in March - but no sooner. What's he going to pay this guy he hit in the bar? "The reason I got into it was to defend against that type of scenario".
