Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor is once again being investigated for alleged sexual assault.

That’s according to a recent report by The New York Times, which discovered that McGregor is being investigated by Irish authorities for alleged sexual assault on a woman in her 20’s in a vehicle parked outside a Dublin pub earlier this month. McGregor has not been charged with any crime or even interviewed by police in this case, per the report.

“Conor McGregor is frequently the subject of rumors. He emphatically denies any report accusing him of sexual assault,” McGregor’s publicist told The Times in a statement via email.

Remember, McGregor was already arrested, questioned, and released by police back in January for an alleged sexual assault in a Dublin hotel in December of 2018. “Notorious” has been waiting to see if he will be charged in that case or not.

“I know zero about that,” UFC president Dana White said back in August regarding McGregor’s first alleged sexual assault. “To be honest with you, the back and forth that I’ve had with him about that, it’s not him. It’s somebody else, so I don’t know.”

McGregor, 31, just appeared in court earlier this month to answer for his suckerpunch on an elderly man inside an Irish pub back in April (see the video HERE). The judge ultimately adjourned the case for three weeks to allow McGregor the time to decide whether he wants to take a guilty plea or fight his assault charge and head to trial.
