Conor McGregor, the renowned Irish mixed martial arts icon, has been accused of sexual assault at an NBA Finals event in Miami last week, as reported by multiple sources in the United States on Thursday.

Letters from the woman's legal representative, referenced by ESPN and TMZ Sports, detailed the allegation of a forceful assault perpetrated by McGregor in a restroom at the Kaseya Center during the Miami Heat's defeat to the Denver Nuggets in game four on Friday.

According to the claims, the 34-year-old UFC star engaged in aggressive kissing and attempted to coerce the accuser into participating in multiple sexual acts. In response to these allegations, McGregor's attorney Barbara Llanes issued a statement denying the charges, emphasizing their falsehood and McGregor's resolute refusal to be intimidated.

While the Miami Police Department confirmed the existence of a filed report on Sunday, they refrained from disclosing further details or directly referencing McGregor, as the investigation conducted by their special victims unit remains ongoing. The Miami Heat and the NBA acknowledged their awareness of the accusations and expressed their commitment to a thorough investigation.

Prior to these recent allegations, McGregor's behavior during the game had already garnered attention following an incident during a timeout. He struck a Miami Heat mascot after the character appeared on the court as part of a prearranged promotional segment. The person inside the mascot costume was subsequently taken to a local hospital for medical attention and later discharged with prescribed pain medication.
