Conor McGregor has finally issued an apology for his shocking attack on an elderly man in a UK pub.

"I was in the wrong," McGregor told ESPN. "That man deserved to enjoy his time in the pub without having it end the way it did."

"I must come here before you and take accountability and take responsibility," the professional brawler continued. 

"I owe it to the people that have been supporting me. I owe it to my mother, my father, my family. I owe it to the people who trained me in martial arts. That's not who I am. That's not the reason why I got into martial arts or studying combat sports. The reason I got into it was to defend against that type of scenario."

McGregor shocked the world after he was captured on camera punching an elderly man at the Marble Arch Pub in Ireland after he turned down a free shot of his Proper 12 Whiskey. 

Is he forgiven?
