Conor McGregor is expected to face charges in relation to an alleged assault in a South Dublin pub.

Video footage of the incident, which happened in the Marble Arch Pub in Drimnagh, appears to show McGregor throwing a punch at an older customer at the bar.

In May, the Herald revealed that McGregor was quizzed by detectives about the alleged assault, but not formally arrested.

A file was sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions and it has now emerged that the 31-year-old (inset) is expected to face charges.

He has not yet been formally charged over the incident on April 6, but is expected to be in the coming weeks.

Shock

CCTV footage shows that the struck man does not move from his seat, but turns back to face McGregor as he is being taken away from the scene.

Staff can be seen reacting with shock. McGregor, who is wearing a light brown sweater and glasses in the footage, then disappears out of shot.

In May, McGregor went to Sundrive Road Garda Station, where he was questioned by detectives.

The alleged victim had told officers he was assaulted by the MMA fighter following a brief row.

McGregor was questioned just over 24 hours after robbery charges were dropped against him in a Florida court.

The fighter met with officers by appointment at Sundrive Road, along with a legal representative.
