Detectives have quizzed former UFC fighter Conor McGregor over an alleged assault in a Dublin pub, the Irish Independent can reveal.

McGregor was interviewed at a Garda station on the southside of the capital after a man claimed he was punched by the Dubliner. The alleged victim told officers he was assaulted by McGregor in the Marble Arch pub in Drimnagh on April 6 following a brief verbal row.

Detectives at Crumlin have been investigating and it is understood they interviewed McGregor on Tuesday. He was questioned just over 24 hours after robbery charges were dropped against him in a Florida court.

The 30-year-old fighter met officers by appointment at Sundrive Road garda station along with a legal representative. McGregor was not formally arrested and presented to the station voluntarily for interview. Gardaí will now submit a file to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) who will determine if the UFC fighter will face any charges.

A spokesperson for Mc­Gregor did not respond when contacted last night.
