Following a report last month that Conor McGregor is being investigated regarding a sexual assault allegation, the former UFC champ’s manager says the star “vehemently denies” any involvement.

According to a report from the New York Times in October, McGregor is being investigated in connection to an alleged sexual assault of a woman outside of a Dublin pub. At the time, McGregor’s publicist reported McGregor denied the allegation.

On the latest episode of Ariel Helwani’s “MMA Show”, McGregor’s manager, Audie Attar of Paradigm Sports, said this (quote via MMA Junkie):

“He vehemently denies any allegation of sexual misconduct or any wrongdoing,” Attar said. “We vehemently deny it, and he does as well. At the end of the day we know who he is, he knows who he is, and we know what the truth is.”

Earlier in 2019 the Times reported McGregor is also being investigated due to a sexual assault allegation that was brought against him last December.

Attar also said that negotiations are ongoing for McGregor’s next bout, and that he expects a deal to be finalized soon. Recently McGregor announced he is going to fight on January 18th, but he declined to name an opponent. Attar also didn’t say who the opponent would be, but, he did reportedly acknowledge McGregor – Donald Cerorne would make for an entertaining fight.

Dana White has acknowledged that the UFC is working on booking a bout between McGregor and Cerrone.
