Horrific news broke after an incident that occurred earlier this month left a man dead in south Dublin, Ireland.

Taekwondo black belt Jonathan Dargan who is a former trainer of UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor could now be in a world of trouble after an alleged drunken altercation led to the death of a 57-year-old Dublin man.

BJPENN.COM recently released a story about the incident. At some time in the early hours on March 5th, Dargan allegedly punched 57-year-old Paddy Mullally who went down and hit his head on the ground and died the next day.

Gardai arrested and questioned Dargan at the Terenure Garda Station but has since released the 45-year-old without a charge, but a file will be sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

After finding more information from the Terenure Garda Station’s latest press release regarding the incident, the release indicates that they are still seeking witnesses regarding the case:
