The UFC star owns the licensed premises on Drimnagh Road in Crumlin, Dublin after buying it for £2million.

But now a Garda investigation has been launched after two petrol bombs were thrown at the pub overnight.

They also responded to reports that two pipe bombs had been left at the premises.

Gardaí say no damage was caused but are now appealing for witnesses to contact them.

They are especially looking for those who may have dashcam footage from the area overnight.

It is the same place where McGregor delivered bottles of his Proper No Twelve whiskey in Christmas 2018.
