Conor McGregor apologises for Dublin bar incident – ‘I was in the wrong’

The UFC star spoke to MMA reporter Ariel Helwani

Conor modelled the new range

Conor McGregor has apologised for his actions – after a video of the MMA star seemingly hitting a 50-year-old man in a Dublin pub went viral.

TMZ had shared CCTV footage from April and the 31-year-old faced backlash online for the incident.

In a new interview with seasoned MMA reporter Ariel Helwani, Conor said he was sorry for his actions.

“In reality it doesn’t matter what happened there I was in the wrong, that man deserved to enjoy his time in the pub without having it end the way that it did,” he said.

“And although 5 months ago I tried to make amends, and I made amends back then…that does not matter, I was in the wrong

“I was in the wrong. I must come here before you and take accountability and take responsibility,” he added.

“I owe it to the people who have been supporting me,” he added. I owe it to my mother, my father, my family…that’s not who I am, that’s not who I am.”

“The reason I got into (MMA) was to defend that sort of scenario…to see it is like a dagger into my heart,” he said of the video.


The CCTV footage that went viral showed Conor pouring glasses of his Proper No. Twelve whiskey for a group of men in Dublin pub The Marble Arch.

After a man refused to drink his whiskey the pair exchanged words and there was an altercation.
