A video of the alleged incident was published on Thursday by TMZ Sports.

McGregor has been busy recently, as he has been seen on Instagram sending motivational messages to his young son, helping his mother celebrate her 60th birthday party at the Versace Mansion in Miami, and posting photographs of his training as he looks to return to the UFC.

McGregor has been linked with rematches against Nurmagomedov, a trilogy bout against Nate Diaz, and a lightweight battle with Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone.

If Conor McGregor’s retirement tweet was intended to be a leverage ploy for an ownership stake in the UFC, it’s not going to work, according to Dana White. White told TMZ on Tuesday that McGregor will have to buy an ownership share in the company like anyone else, if that’s what he wants. “Listen, if you want to own a piece of the company, you have to put up the money to buy a piece of the company,” White told TMZ. “That’s how it works.” McGregor signed an 8-fight deal with the UFC last year. He recently said he was aiming to fight in July, but then two issues apparently came up.
