Conor McGregor has denied allegations of sexual assault against a woman at the NBA finals on Saturday.
The original allegations against McGregor were published in US tabloid magazine TMZ and included a detailed and graphic depiction issued by the woman’s attorney.
“The allegations are false. Mr McGregor will not be intimidated, a statement from his lawyer read.
Miami Police have confirmed they are investigating a report issued to them on June 11, the day after game four of the finals at the Kaseya Center in Florida.
“At this time all we can confirm is that MPD’s Special Victims Unit is investigating a report that was filed Sunday, June 11, 2023,” the force said.
“This is an open investigation so no additional information can be released at this time.”
The match also saw Irishman McGregor get involved in a half-time skit with the Miami Heat mascot.
The 34-year-old punched the mascot, with the mascot reportedly hospitalised afterwards but McGregor played down the severity of the incident.
McGregor said: “The mascot’s good, my man.
“The Mascot is good. It was a skit, and it went the way it went, but all is well.
“I spent a lot of time with him afterwards.
“We hugged it out and everything was great. It was a skit. It was part of the show.”
McGregor is expected to make his long-awaited return to the UFC octogan with a fight against Michael Chandler tipped for later this year.
