Police in Ireland are investigating newly retired UFC star Conor McGregor for an alleged sexual assault that was reported by a woman in December. The story was first reported by Tariq Panja of the New York Times.
There were rumors about this back in late December and January but it’s the first time there’s been confirmation of a police investigation.
The Irish Times reported in January about police questioning a “sportsman” about an alleged assault that occurred on December 9 but McGregor was not named at the time.
McGregor has not been formally charged. We’ll post updates as we get them.
