Conor McGregor says he was ‘in the wrong’ for punching older man at pub
McGregor broke his silence about the April incident as the former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion sat down Thursday for an extended interview with ESPN’s Ariel Helwani that will air Thursday night on ESPN2.
“I was in the wrong,” he said. “That man deserved to enjoy his time in the pub without having it end the way it did. Although, five months ago it was, I tried to make amends. And I made amends back then. That doesn’t even matter, I was in the wrong.”
TMZ’s report stated there has not been any further news on the incident past an investigation. In a statement to MMA Junkie, Ireland’s Garda confirmed the investigation, but didn’t go into details:
