Conor McGregor accused of sexually assaulting a woman at NBA finals

Conor McGregor accused of sexually assaulting a woman at NBA finals

McGregor has denied the allegations

A woman has accused Conor McGregor of sexual assault at the NBA Finals last week.

The woman claims she met the MMA fighter at the Kaseya Center, in Miami, and was approached by a member of his security team as she was leaving the arena, who told her he was asking for her in the bathroom.

She claims that once inside the bathroom McGregor forcibly kissed her, forced her to perform oral sex on him and attempted to sodomise her.

McGregor has denied the allegations, with his attorneys saying in a statement to LADbible: “The allegations are false. Mr. McGregor will not be intimidated.”

The woman’s attorney told the Daily Mail she went to the police to report the incident on Sunday but was advised to get herself legal assistance and sent away.

Conor McGregor has been accused of sexual assault.

She has since hired a legal team who have sent letters to McGregor’s team and filed a report with police.

The woman’s attorney told the news outlet that she had McGregor's DNA on the clothing she was wearing on the night, which she has since handed over to cops.

The allegations were made during the same evening McGregor hit headlines for ‘knocking out’ the Miami Heat mascot, Burnie.

In footage that went viral over the weekend, McGregor was brought onto the court to engage a bit of mid-game entertainment before landing a left hook on the mascot who ended up sprawled out on the floor.

He then proceeded to spray a new 'cryotherapy pain relief' spray over the mascot seemingly as a promotion.

According to The Athletic, a source who was briefed on the event said the man inside the suit, was taken to the emergency room at a nearby hospital to receive treatment where he was given pain medication and sent home to rest.

The MMA fighter recently made headlines after he punched the Miami Heat mascot as part of a 'skit'.

However, McGregor insisted the incident was 'all a skit' and there was no harm done.

Speaking on Live with Kelly and Mark on Wednesday (14 June), the fighting champion claimed: "That was part of the skit, it was all a skit. We were backstage, all was well, it was just part of the show.

"The mascot’s good [...] It was a skit, and it went the way it went, and all is well. I spent a lot of time with him afterwards, we hugged it out, and everything was great."

He continued: "It blew up. I recently made my acting debut, you know? I’m not a bad actor."
