CONOR MCGREGOR reportedly held secret talks with the man he allegedly punched in a Dublin pub following a row over whiskey.
TMZ Sports published CCTV footage of the Irishman appearing to throw an unprovoked punch at man in the Marble Arch pub in Dublin.
Gardai conducted an investigation into the incident which occurred last April and left the victim, a 50-year-old regular at the pub, in a significant amount of pain and unable to leave the house for days.
McGregor appeared to clash with the man after he refused the offer of a free glass of the MMA star’s Proper No Twelve whiskey.
In a fresh twist, The Sun is now exclusively reporting that McGregor spoke to the man after the incident occurred.
They have obtained new CCTV footage showing the Notorious and a minder getting into a taxi in which the alleged victim was also sat.
The taxi had been ordered to take the man back to his Dublin home, but the footage suggests McGregor spoke to the man following their confrontation and may have tried to make amends.
“It’s anyone’s guess what was discussed in the taxi, perhaps McGregor was trying to apologise for the incident,” a source told the paper.
The new information comes as the backlash against McGregor following the unprovoked attack mounts.
One Irish bar in Florida went viral after empty all of its supply of McGregor’s Proper No Twelve whiskey down the toilet in protest at his actions.
They are now calling on other Irish bars to follow suit.
