New footage appears to show the ‘Notorious’ Conor McGregor allegedly punching an older man in the head at a pub.

The footage, released by TMZ, appears to show the MMA fighter walking into The Marble Arch Pub in Dublin on 6 April and buying a bottle of his own ‘Proper Twelve’ whiskey.

The CCTV footage then shows McGregor offering patrons at the bar drinks of his whiskey by placing cups in front of them.

One man refuses the offer twice and removes the cup in front of him. It’s unclear if any words were exchanged between the pair.

Then it appears McGregor allegedly throws a left hand jab in the direction of the man before he is removed from the pub.

The man hardly seems to flinch and remains on his stool throughout the whole ordeal.

The incident was reported to the cops, according to TMZ, but it is unclear if an active investigation is underway and there are no reports of McGregor ever being charged.

McGregor has not fought in the UFC since his fourth round loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 last year.

But in 2018, McGregor was charged with assault after a video showed him throwing a metal trolley through a window of a bus carrying UFC athletes.
