Conor McGregor is reportedly accused of attacking a woman on a yacht during a recent vacation in Ibiza, an allegation that the UFC star denies.
On Monday, Spanish news site Ultima Hora reported that McGregor has been named in an incident in which he allegedly struck a woman multiple times and threatened to drown her during a party to celebrate his birthday, which took place the weekend of July 15. To escape, the woman jumped from her yacht.
According to Marca ., McGregor was initially ruled out of involvement by Gardia Civil. McGregor’s former neighbor allegedly told McGregor that McGregor had attacked her and then claimed that it wasn’t him. McGregor was subsequently reported to Ireland by the victim. The case has been reopened.
Details of the incident (h/t MMA Mania) allege that McGregor and the woman initially interacted amicably before the fighter became violent. She claims he punched her in her chin and stomach before threatening to drown her .
McGregor’s spokesperson Karen Kessler has released the following statement to the media, vehemently denying any involvement on his part in the alleged incident:
“Mr. McGregor is steadfast in his denial of all the accusations made by a guest on his boat.”
This is the latest in a long line of troubling outside-of-the-cage incidents in which McGregor has either been involved in violent acts or seen accusations of violence levied against him.
Most recently this past December, McGregor reached a settlement with Michael Chiesa and other UFC fighters who were injured when McGregor threw a dolly threw a bus window transporting fighters in the loading area of Barclay Arena in New Jersey in April 2018.
Former two-division UFC champion was also accused of attacking an Italian DJ October in an alleged assault in Corsica. Mcgregor was not arrested or charged with this incident. McGregor is still the subject of an multi-million-dollar personal injury lawsuit filed in January 2021)..
