Conor McGregor went to Prenton, Merseyside to attend the funeral of his aunt Pamela McGregor and apparently had to leave the scene in a hurry following an alleged fracas.

Conor McGregor’s abrupt departure

McGregor was caught on video leaving the funeral in a hurry. The footage shows the UFC star leaving The Saddle pub where the service was held with security guards in a hurry, shooing fans away from the car.

Police statement

Merseyside police are looking into the affray according to The Sun.

“We were called to The Saddle pub in Prenton, Wirral, at 7.50pm last night, Tuesday 18th July, to reports of an altercation.

“Officers attended the pub and spoke to a number of people. Further enquiries are being carried out to establish what has taken place.

“At this stage no complaints have been made and nobody has been arrested.”

Troubled year for McGregor

Conor McGregor has been in the press quite a bit in recent months and rarely has it been with positive news. He faces new sexual assault allegations following an appearance at a Miami Heat game last month. His team on The Ultimate Fighter has taken a shellacking at the hands of Michael Chandler’s squad.

And his planned return to the UFC Octagon has yet to be booked, apparently because of issues with USADA’s drug testing program.
