Conor McGregor has been branded a “scumbag lowlife” by an Irish bar owner who filmed himself pouring the former UFC champion’s Proper No. Twelve whiskey down the toilet.
In a Facebook post, Sean Rice, who owns the Salty Shamrock bar in Florida, also said the Dublin-born fighter was “not a true representative of the Irish people.”
Rice’s video came in response to the recent CCTV footage leaked by TMZ that appeared to show McGregor throwing a left fist at an older man in a Dublin pub.
“That’s the lowlife there that we’ve all supported,” Rice said to a photo of McGregor hanging just above the toilet as he prepared to flush away the $34-a-bottle liquor.
“All right guys, get that in the toilet, cause that’s where his whiskey belong right now. Proper No. Twelve to hell with it – it will never be sold at this bar.”
Rice added: “That’s where McGregor’s whiskey belongs, the scumbag lowlife.”

Rice’s video is just one example of the backlash McGregor has faced in recent days after the video of his appearing to attack a man in a Dublin pub surfaced.
Dana White, the UFC’s president, told “The Jim Rome Show” on Thursday that “it won’t end well” for McGregor should be continue with his worrying pattern of behavior outside the ring.
Sen. Catherine Noone of Dublin also told the Irish Sun that she thought McGregor should be punished heavily over the incident because of his “unique ability in the area of fighting.”
