Conor McGregor will NOT face criminal charges after woman alleged he sexually assaulted her in a bathroom at NBA Finals in June – with UFC star ‘pleased this is now over’

Conor McGregor will not face criminal charges over allegations he sexually assaulted a woman during an NBA Finals game in June.

A woman claimed she met McGregor at the game at the Kaseya Center and was leaving the arena when she claims his security told her he was asking for her in the bathroom. Once inside the bathroom, she claims he forced her to perform oral sex on him and forcibly kissed her.

McGregor always denied the accusations and his attorney said in a statement to DailyMail.Com on Tuesday night: ‘After a thorough investigation, including a review of videos and interviews with eyewitnesses, the authorities have concluded that there is no case to pursue against my client, Conor McGregor. 

‘As anticipated, this decision by the authorities confirms Mr. McGregor’s account of the evening. On behalf of my client, his family and his fans we are pleased this is now over.’

The incident was alleged to have occurred on June 9, when McGregor was at the Nuggets vs. Heat game in Miami. 

According to TMZ, prosecutors saw CCTV footage showing McGregor and his accuser going into the men’s restroom together for around five minutes and were seen together at a nightclub after the game.

But, according to the publication, an attendant in the same bathroom said they heard no ‘signs of distress or sounds that would corroborate that whatever was occurring was not consensual.’

TMZ also says that the accuser told her mom she had met McGregor without alleging that she had been attacked and that when she made her allegations against the UFC star, she asked if he would settle or pay her off if she dropped her claims. 

When the accusations first surfaced in June, it was less than 24hrs after it emerged that McGregor and his fiancee Dee Devlin were expecting their fourth child. 

McGregor and Devlin already have three children; Conor Jr., Croia Mairhead and Rian — aged six, four and two, respectively.
