Elderly Man Punched By Conor McGregor Didn't Leave His House For A Week After Assault
The old man punched by Conor McGregor at a pub in Ireland didn't leave his house for a week following the assault according to his friend.
Footage of 'The Notorious' striking the elderly chap at The Marble Arch Pub in Dublin on April 6 after he reportedly declined his invitation to have a free drink of his whiskey, quickly went viral.
The bloke did not appear to flinch whatsoever in the incident, appearing unnerved after taking a flush left hook to the face. But the 50-year old's friend claims he was shook up after the assault and was house-bound as a result.
"He was having his pint when McGregor came in and offered everyone a drink of his whiskey," the friend explain to the Daily Mirror.
"Conor insisted he take it and when he refused a second time McGregor wasn't impressed.
"Next thing he punched him in the side of the face. He didn't feel the pain of it at the time, but the next day he was in bits. It was a proper hard hit.
"His face was very sore. He was very shaken by the whole thing and didn't leave his house for days."
McGregor's rival Khabib Nurmagomedov, who tapped the Irishman out back in October during the UFC Lightweight championship fight, made his feelings known on the matter.

We have to respect old people, I don't understand. One fan sent me a message, he said 'Hey, you remember when he tried to give you his whiskey, like alcohol, and you don't take this? But why don't he punch you?' But now he goes crazy with old people? I don't understand this.
"People like this have to go to jail."
"(In) my opinion, he has to see a little bit jail, because when something happens and you see jail and you sit a little bit and think about this, OK what I did, why I sit here. He has to think about this.
"I don't want to say nothing to him. I just want to say Ireland's government, where are you guys? Send him location! That's it.
"Today he punches an old guy. What's going to happen tomorrow? Nobody knows this."
Meanwhile, staff at an Irish pub in Florida have blacklisted McGregor by pouring bottles of his Proper Twelve whiskey down the toilet and flushing it down the drain.
Bar manager Sean Rice posted a statement on the Salty Shamrock Facebook page and then published a live video showing the pouring of his product down the loo.
