Just hours after announcing his retirement from the UFC, Conor McGregor is being hit with some pretty heavy allegations. According to a report from the New York TimesMcGregor is being investigated by Irish police for an alleged sexual assault that took place back in December. In the report, it states that a woman had accused Conor of the crime and that he was arrested for it in January. The UFC fighter was questioned about the alleged incident and then let go pending a more thorough investigation. McGregor was never charged with any crimes despite the arrest, although this is fairly standard in Ireland. No allegations have been proven at this time.

According to the alleged victim, the incident occurred at the Beacon Hotel in Dublin where McGregor is sometimes a guest. Initially, Mcgregor's name was left out of all initial reports, as Irish law states that those charged with rape cannot be named in the media. However, since McGregor hasn't been charged, his name finally got out.

McGregor has yet to comment on the allegations. Be sure to stay tuned for any updates on this situation as we will be sure to provide them.
