Conor McGregor forced to flee funeral after brawl breaks out at pub

Conor McGregor was forced to flee his aunt’s funeral after a brawl broke out at the pub where the service was being held.

The incident occurred on Tuesday, July 18, at The Saddle Club in Birkenhead, Merseyside, England.

According to reports, McGregor was upset by the actions of certain people attending the funeral and his security detail decided it necessary to leave to avoid unnecessary speculation and attention.

The Saddle Club issued a statement on the incident, saying that McGregor “was courteous, polite and well mannered to all our staff and members when in communal areas through the time he was here, taking pictures, signing autographs and donating to certain charities on behalf of the family.”

The statement also said that the pub “will not be commenting on any speculation regarding persons attending a private function.”

Police are investigating the incident and no arrests have been made at this time.

McGregor took to social media to address the incident, saying that he was “upset” by the actions of certain people at the funeral. He also said that he was “not a target” and that he would “not be intimidated.”

This is not the first time that McGregor has been involved in a controversy. In 2018, he was arrested in Miami for punching a man in the face at a bar. He was also arrested in 2019 for throwing a dolly at a bus carrying UFC fighters.

McGregor has been criticized for his behaviour, but he has also been defended by some fans who say that he is just a “passionate” fighter.

It remains to be seen what the long-term consequences of this incident will be for McGregor. However, it is clear that he is a polarizing figure who continues to generate headlines.

Here are some additional details about the incident:

  • The brawl broke out shortly after McGregor arrived at the pub for the funeral.
  • The cause of the brawl is not known, but it is believed to have been sparked by an argument between two men.
  • McGregor was not involved in the brawl, but he was reportedly upset by the violence.
  • McGregor’s security detail quickly intervened and removed him from the pub.
  • Police are investigating the incident and no arrests have been made at this time.
