The man who was hit by Conor McGregor after refusing to taste his whiskey told him, "I don't want to drink this s ** t."
The shocking video appears to indicate that the UFC star is hitting an adult drinker in the head after he refuses a shot at his whiskey.
The dramatic footage shows McGregor greeting people sitting at the counter of a marble arch in Dublin on April 6th.
The Crumlin fighter, holding a bottle of his own brand, correct No. 12. Whiskey, puts glasses on the bar, including one for the man. But the drinker raises the glass and puts it on the counter. McGregor stares at the man before placing another glass in front of him.
But the man moves him again and puts him on the counter, shooting McGregor with his hand.
McGregor pours three drinks and glasses of his knowledge.
He then raises his left arm as if flexing his muscles before stepping back and hitting the man on the side of his head. The multimillionaire fighter drags on as the victim stays on his chair, much to the shock of the staff.
A source said yesterday, "The boy McGregor offered a drink to say, 'I don't want to drink this thing, I don't want your drink,'" and McGregor was not happy. And it must have been the end – then he waved for him.
The source added that he believed McGregor frequently visited the pub with friends. He said: "They tell me when he has several [drinks] he can get hyper in it.
"As far as I know, he had nothing to do with the pub since everything happened. It happened in April. "
The source also agreed that it was puzzling how the CCTV had already been released and understood that Gardai was investigating.
He added: "That was stupid and maybe the man just had to hand over the drink to someone else and just thank him."
The Guardian confirmed at the time that they were investigating the incident.
In April, a source said: "There was some turmoil, [McGregor] there was a mick and there was an incident.
"The man who was attacked is from Balifermot and drinks a lot in the pub."
The Irish Mirror contacted McGregor's representatives for comment.
The fighter – one of the richest UFC stars since his boxing match with Floyd Mayweather two years ago – was arrested in March on charges of stealing and breaking a phone in front of a Miami Beach hotel.
But in May, alleged victim Ahmed Abdirzak, 22, dismissed the case and reached an out-of-court settlement.
McGregor has not been fighting in the UFC since last October when he was submitted by
lightweight champion Habib Nurmagomedov.
UFC President Dana White has hinted that McGregor could return as early as September by intervening for Habib, or Dustin Poirier should either get injured before their upcoming clash. White said, "I talked to him last week. He wants to come back, so he's looking to see how everything plays out in September.
"Habib and Poirier fight [but] you know how this business works.
"Anything can happen, and it usually does, so I think he's just waiting to see how things unfold and is there an opportunity to jump somewhere and do something."
It comes after Connor McGregor and Dee Devlin celebrated the baptism of their daughter Kriya at 15th-century Lutrellstown Castle in Castleck, Dublin on Sunday, joined by family, friends and even some fairies.
Cuta, who was born in January, is Connor and Dee's second child, and she has been the center of attention in the lush bash.
Daddy Conor and Cuty's brother – Conor Junior, two, both wearing smart suits, while Dee stuns in a pink floral dress.
The parents of Connor Margaret and Tony and sisters Erin and Aoyf were also there for Cutie's big day.
