UFC star Conor McGregor is reportedly under investigation in Ireland for sexually assaulting a woman.
On Tuesday, The New York Times published a story about a woman who accuses McGregor of assaulting her at the Beacon Hotel in Dublin, where McGregor is an occasional guest. Irish news media first reported the alleged assault in late 2018 but did not identify McGregor by name.
Law enforcement arrested and questioned the 30-year-old in January, but released him pending further investigation. He has not been charged with a crime.
The news of McGregor’s alleged sexual misconduct comes on the heels of his announcement that he’ll be retiring from the UFC.
“I wish all my old colleagues well going forward in competition,’’ he tweeted on Tuesday. “I now join my former partners on this venture, already in retirement. Proper Pina Coladas on me fellas!” (Proper No. 12 is a whiskey brand he founded.)
