Conor McGregor’s flagship pub in Dublin was subjected to a petrol bomb attack as the UFC superstar held a taste-testing session on the premises on Wednesday evening, according to reports. The Black Forge Inn was allegedly targeted by two men on scooters during the event, with police now appealing for witnesses and video footage to assist their investigation into the incident.
No damage was caused to the establishment, which was purchased by McGregor for £2million back in 2019, in spite of the attack.
The former two-weight UFC champion is regularly spotted at the pub and has revamped it in recent months, establishing the premises as one of Dublin’s most popular nightlife hotspots in the process.
A source told Dublin Live: “There were two people allegedly spotted on scooters who passed the establishment at the time and next thing they were being chased by two others who had come out of the property.
“McGregor had been holding a taste-testing menu in the pub at the same time so the alleged attackers may have assumed he was inside.”
