The bad news was received by Conor McGregor yesterday. Namely, one of the pubs owned by the Irish MMA star was attacked by hitherto unknown attackers, who used Molotov cocktails during their action. It is about The Black Forge Inn pub in Dublin, and the news is transmitted by The Mirror.
According to the police, two more pipe bombs were found in front of the entrance to the pub. Despite the attack, no concrete damage was done, no one was injured and the bar continued to operate normally. It is not known what could have provoked the aggressors into such an act.
However, most believe that the most important thing is that nothing happened to anyone, because this event could very easily have ended in a bad way, but fortunately no one was there. A total of two Molotov cocktails were thrown on the premises of the bar, and two more were found a little further away.
Police are looking for videos of two men seen riding a scooter, in the direction of The Black Forge Inn. The aforementioned pub is one of Conor McGregor’s most recent purchases and business moves. He bought the bar for $ 2.75 million, and of course, he is using it to further promote his Proper Twelve whiskey.
The bar is located in the part of Dublin where McGregor grew up.
Conor McGregor recovering and call out
Clearly, Conor McGregor has made a great marketing move and successfully branded his product. He has already made huge profits from his brand and apparently intends to focus only on that when he finishes his UFC career.
In any case, this is not good news for Conor McGregor, who is currently focused on recovering from a severe leg fracture, which he suffered in the seventh month of last year. Conor McGregor is a fighter who most often calls out other fighters, and who builds his career on that, which he did quite successfully.
Yet such things must have led to negative outcomes like this one The Irishman lost to Dustin Poirier, and a return is expected in the middle of this year. "Notorious" wants to attack the title immediately, but given the two defeats in a row that he recorded against "Diamond", it will be difficult to get such an opportunity.
Still, knowing the relationship between Dana White and Conor McGregor, nothing can surprise us. It remains for Conor McGregor to try to forget about this and prepare for the next match
