A woman has come forward with allegations of sexual assault against Conor McGregor following Game 4 of the NBA Finals. The claims were made through demand letters drafted by attorney Ariel Mitchell, which TMZ Sports has obtained.
According to the letters, the incident is said to have occurred shortly after the Denver Nuggets’ victory over the Miami Heat at the Kaseya Center on June 9. The woman alleges that McGregor sexually assaulted her in a men’s bathroom with significant force.
Representatives for McGregor, the NBA, and the Heat have all acknowledged receiving copies of the demand letters. McGregor’s representatives released a statement to TMZ stating that the allegations are false.
In response to the allegations, the UFC issued a statement to MMA Junkie, stating that they are aware of the accusations and will gather more details before making any additional comments. The Heat also announced that they will be conducting an investigation into the matter.
As per the letters written by Mitchell, the woman claims that NBA and Heat security personnel assisted in separating her from her friend, leading to her being trapped in a restroom where McGregor and his security team were present.
According to the letters, McGregor’s security team prevented the woman from leaving the bathroom or allowing her friend to enter. McGregor allegedly emerged from a stall and forcibly kissed the victim after shoving his tongue into her mouth.
The woman reportedly managed to deter McGregor momentarily by claiming she needed to use the restroom, but he allegedly coerced her into performing oral sex. It is further claimed that McGregor pinned her against a wall and attempted to engage in anal sex.
In her escape, the woman used her elbows to repeatedly strike McGregor, eventually freeing herself. However, she left her purse behind in her hasty departure, which McGregor’s security personnel held “hostage” until she pleaded for its return.
The woman later reported the assault to local authorities. Mitchell’s letters state that she is seeking settlements from McGregor, the NBA, and the Heat as an alternative to pursuing legal action.
It is worth noting that McGregor was present at Game 4 of the NBA Finals due to a skit he was involved in with the Heat mascot. The skit took a wrong turn when McGregor, who was promoting a pain-relief spray, unintentionally struck the person inside the mascot costume with two punches. The individual had to be taken to the emergency room for medical treatment.
