This morning.

Via TMZ:

The absurd attack went down at The Marble Arch Pub [Benbulbin Road, Driminagh, Dublin 12] on April 6 [but only released this morning]

Conor walked in and lined up cups for bar patrons … looking to buy a round of his Proper Twelve for everyone.

The problems started when the guy opted out. Conor placed a cup in front of him not once, but twice … and he still refused.

Unclear if words were exchanged between them, but after Conor downed a shot with the other drinkers, he unexpectedly threw his notorious left fist and decked the old man who rejected the shot.

Perhaps most odd of all … the poor, old pub patron who got socked didn’t even get knocked off his stool. People are just tougher in Ireland, apparently

G’wan Drimnagh.

Chins of steel.

Anyone?

SO…Conor McGregor tweeted about wanting a gold statue of himself. Eamon Heneghan said he would make one. I said ‘ok’. He said it would be LIFE SIZED. I laughed. 😁 Éamo starts measuring things, and buying wood, chicken wire, newspaper, and clay. I left for America 🇺🇸 THEN [Saturday] Éamon sends me a photo of… a *life-size* GOLD *Conor McGregor* STATUE 🏆🌠 10/10 for follow through, in fairness. 😁

In fairness.

Thanks Ciara

In the 10th round of a surprisingly competitive fight, Mayweather backed McGregor onto the ropes with a series of rights and lefts. McGregor’s face was completely bloodied. He was about to fall through the ropes, and the referee stepped in to stop the fight with 1:55 remaining in the round.
