A woman has accused MMA star Conor McGregor of sexually assaulting her at Game 4 of the NBA Finals, but the UFC star has denied the allegation, as per TMZ.
McGregor is alleged to have “violently” sexually assaulted a woman inside of a men’s bathroom shortly after the Denver Nuggets 108-95 win over the Miami Heat at the Kaseya Center on June 9.
The woman’s attorney Ariel Mitchell wrote that McGregor’s security “refused to let [the woman] exit or allow anyone else, including her friend, inside the bathroom.” McGregor emerged from a stall “and shoved his tongue in the victim’s mouth and aggressively kissed her.”
“According to the letters, the woman was able to get McGregor off of her by telling him she had to urinate … but then McGregor allegedly forced her to have oral sex with him,” TMZ wrote. “McGregor, 34, is then accused of grabbing the woman and pinning her against the wall … before attempting to sodomize her.”

The 34 year-old McGregor is then accused of grabbing the woman and pinning her against the wall, before attempting to sodomize her.
The woman allegedly fled the bathroom in such a rush that she forgot her purse, and McGregor’s security held it “hostage” until she pleaded with them to get it back.
Mitchell wrote that the woman is seeking settlements from McGregor, the NBA and the Miami Heat in lieu of litigation.
McGregor vehemently denies any wrongdoing, according to his representatives, and “will not be intimidated” by the “false” allegations
McGregor was at Game 4 of the NBA Finals because he took part in a skit with the Heat mascot that went wrong.
The man in the mascot costume had to be taken to the emergency room at a nearby hospital when the former UFC fighter, who was promoting a pain-relief spray, legitimately hit him with two punches, as per The Athletic’s Sam Amick.
This not the first time the former UFC champion has been accused of sexual assault. McGregor was also accused in Ireland of assaulting a woman in an Ireland hotel room in 2019.
