Maybe Conor McGregor's jab isn't that strong after all! Extraordinary moment elderly man barely flinches as UFC fighter sucker-punches him in the face in a Dublin pub for refusing to take a shot of whiskey

Conor McGregor sucker-punched an elderly grey-haired man in a Dublin pub after the customer refused to do a shot of whiskey with him, footage of the incident revealed today.
The ex-UFC champion was caught on CCTV in the Marble Arch pub in the Irish capital on April 6 pouring shots of his Proper Twelve whiskey - a brand which he founded and owns - for those sitting at the bar.
But after one man twice rejected his offer, McGregor threw a vicious jab into his face which caught him on the cheek, leaving onlookers stunned.
Despite being punched by one of MMA's most high-profile fighters, the man, thought to be in his 60s, remained on his stool. 
In fact, he took the punch better than many of McGregor's opponents and hardly reacted.  
McGregor was immediately dragged away by the security team he was drinking with. 
The fight was reported to police at the time, but new details emerged today after TMZ published footage of the altercation. 
Speaking today, the Garda told Mail Online: 'Investigations ongoing in relation to this incident and no arrests have been made to date.' 


It is believed that detectives spoke to McGregor after the incident.  
The newly-released CCTV shows McGregor walking into the pub wearing a tan top and large sunglasses before approaching the bar, where several men are sat drinking.

McGregor is then shown with a bottle of Famous Twelve whisky in his hand, before placing a glass in front of several men at the bar.
One man angrily moves the glass out of the way, so McGregor places another glass in front of him, which he also removes.
Not to be deterred, the fighter then pours three shots of the whiskey and begins pumping his fist in the air, as others further down the bar cheer and clap.
Without warning, he then swings his fist into the man's face, before being dragged outside by men who appear to be members of his own security team. 
The identity of the man is unclear, though local reports claim he is a regular at the pub and is in his 60s. 
It is not the first time McGregor has been investigated for violence outside the octagon. 
In March this year McGregor was arrested for robbery and criminal mischief in Miami after smashing a phone out of a fan's hand and stamping on it when he tried to take a picture.
The charges were eventually dropped and McGregor settled a civil suit with the victim.
He was also charged with assault in New York in April 2018 after he threw a metal dolly through the window of a bus carrying rival UFC fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov and several other fighters.
McGregor was eventually allowed to plead no contest to a single charge of disorderly conduct.
He was ordered to perform five days of community service and attend anger management classes.
Reporting on the pub incident back in April, local media quoted a witness who said: 'McGregor was being a show off in the pub and one man didn't like it and went up to have a word with him. 
It is also reported someone told McGregor: 'The Russian battered you.' 
This was a reference to the Irishman's defeat at the hands of UFC rival Khabib Nurmagomedov last October.
Another said: 'There was a bit of a commotion, he [McGregor] was acting the mick and there was an incident.
'There weren't many people in the bar at the time, there was drink involved.'
