Conor McGregor is the biggest star in the history of MMA. The highest-paid athlete of last year is ridiculously rich. Conor started a whiskey brand way back, and he made fortunes for himself being the brand ambassador of the brand.

Conor sold major stakes of the brand for a whopping $600 million. He also started a pub called “Black Forge Inn” and it was doing pretty well. In a recent incident, his £2million pub was targeted in a petrol bomb attack. The superstar posted a status from his social media account that indicated that he was in The Black Forge Inn in Drimnagh Road, Dublin.

The incident took place on Wednesday night, and according to the reports petrol bombs were thrown at the pub during a tasting event, but they failed to ignite. Two men were also seen riding a scooter, and they were chased away by members of the staff and some people present at the event.
