UFC fighter Conor McGregor has been in the news a lot lately.

The fighter has long been known for his aggressive temper both inside and outside the octagon, and it appears that violent side now has him squaring up with sexual assault allegations.

According to reports from TMZ Sports, McGregor has been accused of sexually assaulting a woman while he was attending an NBA Finals game at Kaseya Center in Miami, Florida. The arena is home of the Miami Heat, who were taking on the Denver Nuggets in the culmination of the NBA’s season.

During Game 4 of this year’s NBA Finals, McGregor was sitting courtside for the matchup between the Jimmy Butler led Heat and the eventual champion Denver Nuggets, led by the “I just want to go home” Nikola Jokic.

The UFC fighter was even a part of the halftime entertainment, where he got a little too carried away with a stunt and sent the Miami Heat’s mascot to the hospital.

Take a look:

Apparently sometime during the night when he wasn’t assaulting the mascot, he allegedly also horrifically sexually assaulted a woman in one of the arena’s bathrooms.

The demand letters that were obtained by TMZ and were filed by attorney Ariel Mitchell reveals that the victim became separated from a friend she was attending the game with by security present at the game, and was then forced into a bathroom of the Kaseya Center.

Once she was inside the restroom, the allegations state that McGregor came out from one of the stalls and began to forcibly kiss the woman. The letters filed by the attorney suggest that the security guards kept the woman from leaving the bathroom, and also kept anyone else from entering.

The victim was briefly able to put distance between herself and Conor by saying she had to actually use the restroom, but shortly after, McGregor allegedly forced the victim to perform oral sex on him. Following that, the letters allege that the 34-year-old fighter pushed the woman up against the wall of the bathroom and tried to rape her.

After elbowing McGregor over and over again, the victim was eventually able to get away from the fighter. However, she left her purse behind in the bathroom, which Conor’s security guards reportedly “held hostage.”

Once the woman was able to successfully get her belongings back, she reported the incident to the authorities, and the subsequent sexual assault demand letters were filed.

McGregor’s team released a short statement denying all of the allegations entirely, while adding:

“Mr. McGregor will not be intimidated.”

The former UFC champion has been charged with assault before for attacking a bus at a UFC Media Day, and was also accused by another victim of sexual assault in a hotel room in Ireland back in 2019.
