Conor McGregor buys Dublin pub where he sucker punched old man

MCGREGOR HAS returned to the scene of the crime, and purchased it.

Never one to shy away from controversy, Conor McGregor has made the bold choice to purchase the pub where he punched a 50-year-old Dublin man.

Back in April of 2019, the UFC fighter punched the man who was sat at the bar, seemingly over a whiskey dispute.

He was fined €1000 by the Dublin District Court after he had been caught on the Marble Arch's CCTV, while he also issued an apology to Des Keogh, the man in question.

Footage of the incident was shared widely on social media at the time.

Confirming that he bought the pub, McGregor also shared a Tweet on Thursday that implied that Des Keogh is banned from entering the Marble Arch.

This is the second pub he has bought in that area in the past while, as he also purchased The Black Forge in his nearby hometown suburb of Crumlin last year.

While no sum has been reported for this business transaction, it is believed that he forked out approximately €3 million to buy and renovate the Black Forge.

It has been quite a busy week for the fighter, as he responded to a crazy few days in the world of football by implying he might buy Manchester United.
