Sexual assault allegation

Conor McGregor, the former UFC champion, is facing accusations of sexual assault involving a woman at a Miami NBA Finals game.

The Miami Heat and the NBA have initiated investigations into the alleged incident, which is said to have occurred inside an arena bathroom following Game 4 of the NBA Finals. The woman involved has provided the Miami police with the clothing she wore that night, and a report has been filed. However, the status of the police investigation remains unclear.

Barbara Llanes, McGregor’s attorney, has stated that the fighter vehemently denies any wrongdoing and will not be intimidated by the accusations.

Ariel Mitchell, the woman’s attorney, has sent letters to the NBA, the Miami Heat, and McGregor’s representatives, outlining her client’s allegations. Mitchell has indicated that her client is open to discussing “reasonable settlement offers” until June 12, after which legal action may be pursued.

Both the Miami Heat and the NBA have acknowledged the allegations and are conducting thorough investigations. Until the investigations are complete, they have chosen not to provide further comments.

On the same night as the alleged incident, McGregor engaged in a midgame bit that went wrong, resulting in him knocking out the Miami Heat mascot. The mascot, known as Burnie, sought medical attention after being punched by McGregor during a third-quarter stoppage. Burnie received pain medication and is currently recovering.

McGregor’s presence at the game was part of a promotional stunt for a pain-relief spray, which received a negative response from the Miami crowd even before the incident occurred. McGregor struck the mascot with a left hook, causing Burnie to fall to the ground. McGregor then hit the mascot again while he was on the floor. He also attempted to spray the mascot with the pain-relief product before members of the Heat’s promotional team intervened and removed Burnie from the court.

It’s worth noting that McGregor has not competed in a fight since sustaining a leg injury in a loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in July 2021. His most recent victory came in January 2020.
