Conor McGregor Says He Was In The Wrong In The Bar Incident

Video recently surfaced showing former two division UFC champion Conor McGregor attacking a patron during a visit to the Marble Arch Pub.

The Irishman has had some time to reflect on what went down and McGregor has admitted that he was wrong for what went down.

“I was in the wrong,” McGregor told Ariel Helwani of ESPN. “That man deserved to enjoy his time in the pub without having it end the way it did. I must come here before you and take accountability and take responsibility. I owe it to the people that have been supporting me. I owe it to my mother, my father, my family. I owe it to the people who trained me in martial arts. That’s not who I am. That’s not the reason why I got into martial arts or studying combat sports. The reason I got into it was to defend against that type of scenario.”

An investigation is still being done by the local authorities in Ireland, but the results of that investigation have yet to be revealed.

Although no punishment or any kind of ramifications have been revealed for the incident, an apologetic McGregor is willing to accept whatever is coming his way.

“Whatever comes my way, I will face it,” he said. “Whatever comes my way, I deserve it. I will face this head on. I will not hide from it. I was in the wrong. It was completely unacceptable behavior for a man in my position.”

McGregor has been in the limelight for the wrong reasons for awhile now, including the bus attack before UFC 223, the post-fight incident at UFC 229 and a sexual assault allegation earlier this year
