Conor McGregor has reportedly bought the pub in which he was seen on video punching an older man at the bar.

A 2019 video published by TMZ Sports showed the former two-weight UFC champion throw his fist at a man who was sat on a stool by the bar at the Marble Arch in Dublin.

The man had allegedly refused a shot of McGregor's Proper No. Twelve whiskey, according to a Business Insider report at the time, as the MMA fighter had been offering to buy rounds for everyone in the pub.

McGregor later apologized during an interview with ESPN, and said he needed to get his "head screwed on."

Two years later, he's returned to the scene of the crime to spend between $2 million and $2.5 million. But rather than purchase an expensive round of drinks, McGregor's bought the entire pub, according to The Currency News.

"It is his second purchase in the area as he expands his business interests following his success as a fighter," reports Tom Lyons for the business website.

"Ye and your man's barred," McGregor tweeted Thursday, in reaction to the news breaking online.

He lobbied for an immediate rematch, which would be a trilogy bout, and has got his wish as he fights the American once again July 10 at UFC 264.

The McGregor vs. Poirier rivalry is currently tied on one win each.
