Since buying the pub back in 2020, McGregor has reportedly spent €3 million buying the venue and giving it a massive makeover. Now UFC The superstar has posted a drone-shot video to give people an exciting journey inside The Black Forge Inn.
The video begins by giving viewers a perspective on what it’s like to watch The Black Forge Inn from above. The drone then goes through the entrance of the pub and travels around the interior of the establishment, from the kitchen to the dining area to the bar.
Apparently, Conor McGregor’s videographers have taken inspiration from a drone tour of a bowling alley in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which went viral earlier this year. The similarities are very noticeable when watching the videos side by side.
The History of Conor McGregor with The Black Forge Inn
Conor McGregor’s purchase of The Black Forge Inn is a curious business move on his part, given his history with the place. That’s because this is where the former UFC two-division champion got in trouble for punching an elderly man over a whiskey brawl.
Unfortunately for McGregor, the gentleman he sucked-punched was no patron of the pub. He turns out to be the father of a high-ranking dacoit in the Kinahan Cartel. Needless to say, the Irishman got himself into some serious, potentially life-threatening trouble.
Veteran crime reporter Paul Williams reports that ‘The Notorious’ Irishman has been targeted by the Kinahan Cartel for his role in a barroom brawl. The crime family reportedly demanded a ransom of €900,000 from McGregor.
