Conor McGregor won’t face charges stemming from allegations he sexually assaulted a woman during the NBA Finals. In the original statements given, the accuser said the incident occurred in the bathroom of Kaseya Center during a Heat/Nuggets NBA Finals game. McGregor has maintained his innocence since the initial report was released.
Now, prosecutors have now decided there is “insufficient evidence” to pursue the matter any further, according to a report from TMZ.
“In light of the above facts and circumstances, the State would not be able to satisfy its burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt,” prosecutors wrote about the case being dropped.
That’s good news for McGregor, who has had a history of arrests for everything from assault to major traffic violations. He’s also looking to make a comeback to The Octagon after being out of action since July 2021, following a loss to Dustin Poirier where he broke his tibia.
Conor McGregor’s attorney told TMZ, “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. On behalf of my client, his family, and his fans… we are pleased this is now over.”
McGregor, is a former Ultimate Fighting Championship Featherweight and Lightweight Champion, becoming the first fighter to hold UFC titles in two weight classes simultaneously. He is considered the biggest draw currently competing in mixed martial arts, and he’s earned a total of $615 million in his career through fight earnings, endorsements, and outside business ventures.
