Co/nor McGregor once again landed himself into legal trouble as he was accused of attempted sexual assault and "sexual exhibition". Conor McGregor was originally set to participate in a 180 km charity voyage in the Mediterranean Sea.
However, the allegations would then come up and it was reported that Conor McGregor was taken into custody. A team representing Conor McGregor has since put out a statement vehemently denying the allegations:
“Conor McGregor vigorously denies any accusations of misconduct,” McGregor’s management said in a statement to TMZ. “He has been interviewed and released.”
Conor McGregor's manager Audi Attar even put out a statement saying,
“I am irate and putting out a warning loud and clear: Conor McGregor is not and will not be a target for those seeking to score a headline or a payday,”.
