‘The Notorious’ was promoting his brand Proper No. 12 whiskey and offered a drink to the people in the pub. However, the 50-year-old refused the drink even after McGregor offered it several times. This caused an altercation between both the men, and McGregor ended up punching the man in the head.

The whole scenario got recorded on the CCTV and the former UFC champion was charged for assault and had to pay a fine. However, later he bought the pub for around $2.4 million and had the old man banned.
