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 was previously reported that a couple of petrol bombs were thrown at his pub back in January. The attack caused superficial damage to the exterior of the bar. However, no one was injured in the attack though the venue was crowded during the incident.
Conor McGregor announced cash reward
Police have investigated the incident, but are yet to arrest any suspects. According to Independent.ie McGregor has taken some of the investigation into his own hands. The former UFC champion posted, and then deleted, CCTV footage of the attack this week and promised a a 50,000 Euro reward ($53,000) for information about the individual shown in the video.
“Hey guys. I have a 50k reward cash in all 100 crisp untouched notes. Not a wrinkle on them,” wrote McGregor. “The no wrinkle green backs. I call them yum-yums. For whoever tells us who this little deli-chicken head is. Nothing will be said, but done. Reach out to who can reach me. Look forward to doing business.”
Later on, McGregor posted the message:
“Wow that was quick. Thank you so much Good Samaritan.”
‘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.
