In a new interview Conor McGregor has done, the star’s responded to the sexual assault allegations that have been brought against him in Ireland.

McGregor is booked to fight Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 this Saturday. During a lengthy interview the star did with ESPN ahead of the event, McGregor said the following about the allegations (quotes via MMA Junkie):

“Look, just no,” McGregor said. “I can’t say anything about this. It just has to take place.”

“Would it bother you (to be accused)?” McGregor asked. “There you go. Time. Patience. Patience is a skill we must master. Patience is the most difficult skill to master, and I’m working hard to master it. So time will show all. That’s it.

“Right now, I’m focused on the belt – focused on positivity and good thoughts. And I will say a prayer for those trying to bring harm to me with these type of things. Yes, of course (I deny them). Of course. Time, please. Time will reveal all. Time will tell all. That’s it.”

On Saturday, McGregor will be fighting for the first time since October, 2o18, when he was submitted by lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov.
