UFC superstar Conor McGregor has avoided charges after a woman accused him of sexually assaulting her in a bathroom at Miami’s Kaseya Center during the NBA Finals. The Miami Police Department stated that the matter is now closed, citing insufficient evidence. McGregor was accused of forcefully kissing the woman and engaging in non-consensual sexual acts. However, prosecutors decided not to pursue charges against him. McGregor’s lawyer denied the allegations.
The alleged incident took place in a VIP men’s bathroom following Game 4 of the NBA Finals. According to the woman’s lawyer, NBA and Heat security personnel separated the alleged victim from her friend and directed her into the bathroom where McGregor and his security team were present. The lawyer claimed that security refused to allow the woman to leave or let anyone else, including her friend, enter the bathroom.
The woman alleged that McGregor emerged from a stall, forcibly kissed her, and engaged in further non-consensual acts. However, an attendant present in the bathroom at the time did not report hearing any signs of distress. The alleged victim did not immediately inform her friend about the incident but later disclosed it to her mother.
McGregor, known for his success in the UFC, had previously made headlines during the NBA Finals for punching the Miami Heat mascot during a skit. The incident resulted in medical attention being provided to the person inside the mascot costume.
