UFC fighter Conor McGregor apparently punched a guy in a Dublin bar over a dispute involving whiskey. The Irish mixed martial artist was at the Marble Arch Pub April 6 and wanted to buy a round of his Proper Twelve whiskey for everyone at the bar, but one man twice refused the drink and McGregor apparently got upset. After taking a shot with the patrons who had not turned down the drink, McGregor appears to pump his fist in the air and then jab at the man, per ESPN. It's not clear why it took this long for video to surface, but TMZ Sports just obtained and published it. Police in Ireland tell the gossip site no arrests have been made, but the incident is still being investigated. (More Conor McGregor stories.)
