Although the case was in April, the video was revealed in August, causing disapproval of former champion fans. An Irish bar in the United States threw several bottles of its Whiskey brand in the bathroom in response to what happened with the Irish.
After criticism and damage to his image after the assault, Conor gave an interview to ESPN and apologized for what happened. On that occasion, the Irishman took the blame for the incident.
“I was wrong. That man deserved to enjoy his time in that pub without finishing the way it happened. I tried to solve the situation and I made agreements at that time. But it does not matter. I was wrong. I need to be here and take my responsibility. I owe that to my fans. I owe it to my mother, my father, my family. I owe that to the people who trained me in martial arts. That was not who I am. That is not the reason I started fighting. The reason was to defend me and defend others from such scenarios,” said the Irishman.
Conor already has various problems outside the octagon, He has not seen action since it was finalized by Khabib Nurmagomedov in UFC 229. He recently signaled his desire to return to the octagon, but for now, there is nothing confirmed.
