Former UFC champion Conor McGregor is not going to face expenses over allegations of sexual assault at a basketball match in Florida.
Prosecutors and the Irish fighter’s lawyer stated the case has been dropped following a police investigation.
Mr McGregor, 35, denied the claims from a girl that he assaulted her in a bathroom on the Kaseya Centre in Miami in June.
The fighter had been on the NBA Finals sport between the Miami Warmth and Denver Nuggets to participate in a promotional stunt during which a mascot was injured.
In a press release carried by a number of media shops, his lawyer Barbara Llanes stated: “After an intensive investigation, together with a evaluation of movies and interviews with eyewitnesses, the authorities have concluded that there isn’t any case to pursue in opposition to my consumer, Conor McGregor.
“As anticipated, this determination by the authorities confirms Mr McGregor’s account of the night.
“On behalf of my consumer, his household and his followers we’re happy that is now over.”
The choice to drop expenses was confirmed by the state legal professional’s workplace.
The lady had accused Mr McGregor of forcing her into the lavatory and stated safety did nothing to assist her.
Mr McGregor has not fought since injuring his left leg in a loss to Dustin Poirier in July 2021. His final win got here in January 2020.
It was confirmed final week that he had taken a step in direction of return by re-entering the US Anti-Doping Company’s testing programme.
