Conor McGregor Addresses Rape Allegations

MMA superstar Conor McGregor has broken his silence about the multi-million dollar lawsuit filed against him by a woman in Ireland, claiming he’s already been “cleared of all wrongdoing.” The alleged incident took place on Dec. 9, 2018.

The woman claims Conor McGregor raped her at a Dublin hotel.


Details via The New York Times:

While in the penthouse suite, the woman said in the statement of claim that she was “beckoned” to the bedroom by McGregor, who asked her to perform a lewd act on him, which she refused. McGregor began kissing the woman and removing her clothes, over her protestations, the statement said. After she bit and hit McGregor, he wrapped his arms around her neck and lifted her up three times, after which she ceased fighting back.

McGregor then told her, “That’s how I felt in the Octagon, I had to tap myself out three times, that’s how I felt,” the lawsuit said. McGregor raped her, according to the statement of claim, and demanded she lie on the bed next to him afterward.

The woman fell asleep and woke up in the early evening of Dec. 9, after which McGregor left the hotel with the woman’s work colleague before returning, the lawsuit said. McGregor’s friend gave her a drink. Her only memory thereafter is of being in a taxi, according to the statement. She said she was later told by the police that McGregor’s friend said he had sex with her, but she had no recollection of it and did not consent.

The suit, filed Monday, is seeking between $1.79 million to $2.13 million for the woman’s loss of wages, the sale of her home and purchase of a new one, and medical expenses, according to the NYT’s report.

McGregor was asked about the allegations during his press conference.

“It’s old news,” McGregor said of the allegations … “It was investigated thoroughly over the course of 2 long years and I was cleared of all wrongdoing.”
