Conor McGregor rejected the allegations of sexual abuse
Audie Attar, Manager of the Irish mixed martial arts fighter Conor McGregor, said that the athlete denies all of the allegations of sexual abuse. This he said in an interview with MMA Junkie.
«McGregor strongly rejects all allegations of sexual harassment and any other illegal activities. (…) We know who he is, he knows who he is, we know how it really was,» said Attar.
In March 2019, The New York Times reported about the arrest of MacGregor in connection with allegations of sexual abuse. According to the publication, the athlete was questioned and released without charges. In October 2019, The New York Times again reported on suspicion of sexual assault against the Irish athlete.
Last week the district court of Dublin was fined McGregor by €1 thousand for assaulting a man at the bar, which was held in April 2019. During the meeting, the former UFC heavyweight champion apologized to the judge Tris Kelly and 50-year-old Desmond Keogh, the victim during the incident.
The last time McGregor stepped into the octagon in October 2018 at UFC 229 in Las Vegas. Then the Irishman in the championship battle lost to the Russians Habib Nurmagomedova.
