Reports claim McGregor’s pub was the target of an attack

Crime editor at the Irish Sun, Stephen Breen, reported claims of a shocking incident that took place overnight.

He wrote on Twitter: “BREAKING – Two petrol bombs thrown at the pub owned by [McGregor’s UFC nickname] @TheNotoriousMMA in Crumlin overnight. Gardai responded to reports that two pipe bombs had been left at the Black Forge Inn.”

Gardai, the police service in Ireland, responded to reports of an incident at the pub on Drimnagh Road, but say no damage was done.

A statement read: “Gardaí are investigating an incident of attempted criminal damage at a licenced premises on the Drimnagh Road, Crumlin last night, Wednesday 12th January 2022.

“No damage was done to the premises.

“Gardaí are appealing for witnesses in relation to this incident is asked to contact Gardaí. Gardaí are particularly keen for anyone with camera footage from the area overnight to make this available to them.

“Anyone with any information is asked to contact Crumlin Garda station on 01 666 2000, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.”

It’s worth noting that the Black Forge Inn was open the day after the bombs were discovered and it was business as usual.

McGregor also owns a second pub in Dublin, the Marble Arch, which became infamous after the Notorious assaulted a man who refused a glass of his Proper No. 12 whiskey.

The former two-weight champion has reportedly purchased the scene of where he punched the man for a fee of between £1.4 to £1.8 million.

McGregor added that Dublin whom he assaulted would be barred from the Marble Arch pub under his ownership.

The 33-year-old last fought in the summer where he broke his leg in his third fight with Dustin Poirier and suffered a devastating leg break.

He is currently training and hopes to be back in full sparring by April, meaning a return to the octagon is not far away either.
