The wildly speculated bar brawl between UFC champion Conor McGregor and a gangster has taken a twist, with the cartel allegedly demanding a $900K ransom from the sports star.
The Twiterrati and all of social media is abuzz with news claiming former featherweight and current lightweight UFC champion, Conor McGregor, was in a nasty bar brawl at the Black Forge pub in Dublin’s Crumlin suburb. The fight itself isn’t surprising, Conor McGregor is famous for his notoriety and quick temper, but the person he beat up could prove this particular fight nasty for the champion. Witnesses at the bar, according to a post by Independent.ie, claim Conor McGregor got into a fight with a gangster having close connections to a convicted drug dealer named Graham ‘The Wig’ Whelan.
The story, however, has not been officially confirmed by Conor McGregor or his team, and news outlets are being careful not to directly claim that the two people in a fight were Conor McGregor and a gangster. Witnesses on the scene have, however, claimed it is true and have taken to social media to spread the word. Although the media is fervently reporting a bar brawl, they are being careful not to mention names, or are doing so by stating the news is alleged.
Most media outlets claim “a famous sports celebrity” got into a bar brawl with a youngster, and a “middle aged man” tried to intervene. The sports celebrity then beat up the middle aged man, who was apparently innocent. Witnesses on the scene claim the sports celebrity is Conor McGregor and the middle aged man is a cartel associate. Police have confirmed no reports have been filed, so for now, they aren’t pursuing the claims made on social media.
Another rumour that is circulating is that the gangster hasn’t filed a police complaint because the cartel will take care of the matter themselves. The word quickly spread that the gangster is looking for retribution, and if Conor Mcgregor does not pay up a $900k ransom to the cartel, he is dead!
