TMZ released a video Thursday that purports to show retired UFC fighter Conor McGregor punching an old man in the head at a bar.

The video shows McGregor in a disagreement with another bar patron. He seems to be pouring drinks for other patrons, but the other man continues to move away the empty glass McGregor gives him.

The incident reportedly happened in April in McGregor’s home country of Ireland, and police said no arrests have been made yet.

McGregor has become known for his run-ins with the law. He was arrested in April 2018 after throwing a metal dolly into the window of a bus carrying other MMA fighters at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Later that year, he got into a post-match brawl after losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov and had his license suspended.

McGregor, 31, announced his retirement from fighting in March, but some doubt he is out of the sport for good.
