Following rumors that UFC superstar Conor McGregor has been arrested for his recent incident in Dublin, Ireland, it has been reported that any stories of McGregor having been brought into custody are “not true.”
Bellator 187 went down today in Dublin, Ireland. UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor was cage side in support of his teammate Charlie Ward. Ward faced off against John Redmond on the night’s card, earning a swift first round TKO win over his opponent. But, Chaos erupted shortly after Ward’s big win.
“Notorious” stormed the Bellator cage after ward won his match. Jumping over the cage, slapping a commissioner in the face, getting into an altercation with the night’s referee, McGregor managed to take over the night’s Bellator event with his storming of the cage.
Rumors quickly followed that “Notorious” had been arrested for a brawl that ensued in a hotel room after the event. However, it would appear that these rumors may not be accurate.
ESPN’s Brett Okamoto recently took to Twitter to report:
“According to source with Conor McGregor’s camp, there is no truth to rumor online of any arrest. Source told me, ‘not true.'”
