Conor McGregor comes to court to get accused of beating a man in a Dublin pub he visited to promote his whiskey
Conor McGregor has arrived in Dublin, accused of beating a man in the face in a pub in the Irish capital.
McGregor, 31, is said to have lashed out the man during a visit to the Marble Arch pub in Drimnagh on April 6, while promoting a whiskey brand he owns.
CCTV of the alleged incident, which arose in August and led to the charges, seems to show that McGregor struck when the man refused to make a free shot.
McGregor is confronted with a single attack for which a fine of € 1500 (£ 1,320) or a maximum prison sentence of six months applies, or both if he is convicted.
He appeared once in court on the case, on October 11, but his lawyer asked to adjourn it until today.
The MMA hunter has yet to argue. He was sent back on bail during the delay of the procedure.
McGregor announced his retirement from mixed martial arts in March this year, but has since confirmed a comeback fight that will take place on January 18 in Las Vegas.
The Irishman claimed to have the opponent's name, but UFC has not confirmed who he is confronted with in the Octagon.
UFC President Dana White has only said that he wants McGregor back in the ring in January, but that no contracts have been signed yet.
