The former UFC Double Champion Conor McGregor is one of the biggest stars of the promotion. He is the owner of multiple assets of which his Black Forge Inn Pub is one of the them. The UFC star owns the licensed premises on Drimnagh Road in Crumlin, Dublin. It has been noted that a police investigation is ongoing after two petrol bombs were thrown at his pub overnight. Conor McGregor had previously leaked Canelo Alvarez’s bank payment.
Conor McGregor’s pub was bombed
According to an initial report from The Sun, the two bombs were found on the premises following the criminal incident. Fortunately, there was no damage caused, but local police are encouraging any potential witnesses to come forward with information to assist with the investigation. They are also seeking dashcam footage to help identify the perpetrators.
Cops asked for anyone with camera footage of the area overnight to come forward. They said:
“Gardai are particularly keen for anyone with camera footage from the area overnight to make this available to them. Anyone with any information is asked to contact Crumlin Garda station on 01 666 2000, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.”
‘The Notorious One’ had purchased the pub for £2million last year. This also happens to be the same pub where McGregor assaulted an older patron, an incident for which he was later fined 1,000 euros. Soon after making this purchase, McGregor provided a video tour of the rebranded and remodeled establishment. McGregor’s business savvy has earned him the #1 spot on Forbes’ 2021 Highest-Paid Athletes List after he sold the majority stake of his Proper No. Twelve whiskey company.
He is currently out of action as he is recovering from a serious injury he suffered in his match against Dustin Poirier which he lost via doctor’s stoppage after breaking his leg. He is expected to make his Octagon return later this year.
