The man who was punched by Conor McGregor last April inside an Irish pub is finally speaking out. During a conversation with the Irish Daily Star, the unidentified person — who we know is 50 years old — briefly detailed what happened.
Furthermore, he went to to accuse Conor of being nothing more than a bully with money.
“I am sitting on the bar stool just having a quiet pint with my friend then all of a sudden because I refuse his drink I get a punch, you don’t need that in life,” he said. “He is a bit of a bully, a bully with money.”
After taking a punch from one of the baddest men on the planet and a former two-division UFC champion, the man took it very well, as it didn’t seem to face him all that much.
“Look-it, I can take a punch,” he proudly proclaimed before ending the interview.
As for McGregor, he recently made a rare interview on ESPN and opened up about the incident, apologizing for his behavior
“In reality, it doesn’t matter what happened there. I was in the wrong,” McGregor said. “I must come here before you and take accountability and take responsibility. I owe it to the people that have been supporting me.”
Furthermore, McGregor vowed to start being a bit more level-headed and not allow other to bait him into ugly incidents. Something that will make UFC president Dana White, very happy.
Hopefully “Notorious” does take his own advice and learns to let some things slide, as his image and brand can’t afford to be taking further hits. Like this one, for example.
