Irish UFC superstar UFC star Conor McGregor won’t face criminal charges following allegations he sexually assaulted a woman at the NBA Finals in Miami on June 9.
According to TMZ, prosecutors said there was “insufficient evidence” to prove that the MMA fighter sexually assaulted his accuser in a public bathroom.
McGregor’s attorney, Barbara Llanes of Gelber Schachter & Greenberg, gave the following statement about the decision.
“After a thorough investigation, including a review of videos and interviews with eyewitnesses, the authorities have concluded that there is no case to pursue against my client, Conor McGregor,” Llanes said. “On behalf of my client, his family and his fans we are pleased this is now over.”
Conor McGregor denied the allegations
According to the documents, prosecutors said they watched the video footage from the night of the incident, and spoke attendant and the accuser’s friend, to come up with their decision.
“In light of the above facts and circumstances the State would not be able to satisfy its burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt,” prosecutors wrote in the memo.
McGregor denied the allegations of rape since they were made public.
