Conor McGregor reportedly held secret talks with the man he punched in a Dublin pub following a row over his own whiskey, according to The Sun.
CCTV footage of the Irishman throwing an unprovoked punch at the elderly gentleman in the Marble Arch pub in Dublin went viral last week and the fall-out against Notorious has been fierce.
However, following the incident, new CCTV footage has been obtained showing McGregor and a minder getting out of a Land Rover and entering the rear of a taxi outside of the pub that the incident took place.
The taxi had been ordered to take the man back to his Dublin home, but the footage suggests McGregor spoke to his victim following their confrontation and tried to make amends for his actions.
But, it is still unclear what was discussed when McGregor was inside the taxi with the victim as the Irishman and his pal are seen leaving the area shortly after their conversation had ended.

A source told The Sun: “It’s anyone’s guess what was discussed in the taxi, perhaps McGregor was trying to apologise for the incident.
“The man was just in the pub for a quiet drink and after the incident he calmly finished his pint and got into the taxi.
“Gardai had to look into the meeting because it formed part of the overall investigation.”
It seems that the punch had left its mark on the 50-year-old victim, as a close friend of his has recently revealed that he was unable to leave his home for a week after the incident due to his face being so sore from the punch.
Although he was seemingly okay immediately after the punch from the UFC star, a close friend revealed that he was severely shaken by the incident, and the pain became immense in the hours afterwards.News Now - Sport News
