1. Conor McGregor

McGregor’s second inclusion on this list was one of the craziest fan encounters ever. He was drinking in his local watering hole in Dublin, Ireland when he decided to buy a round of shots for the entire bar. However, one older gentleman in his fifties decided that he didn’t want to drink McGregor’s own brand of whiskey. The Notorious pressed the issue and the man firmly declined.

Then, the UFC fighter punched the man in the face. In fairness to him, he took it well, but it was shameful behavior from a younger man, nevermind a professional fighter. He went to court and was lucky to escape with just a fine for the incident. Some things tarnish a reputation forever and this was definitely up there with the worst for the volatile Irishman.
