Conor McGregor’s familiar history to sexual assaults, investigating the Irishman’s ’Notorious’ past misdeeds

Conor McGregor, a former UFC champion, has not only made a name for himself in the sport through his accomplishments inside the ring but also due to his ongoing legal issues outside of it.

This week, the Irish mixed martial artist faced an accusation of attempted rape by an unidentified woman at the Kaseya Center in Miami, following Game 4 of the NBA Finals. McGregor, through his lawyer, has vehemently denied the allegation, labeling it as “false” and asserting that he will not be intimidated.

The detailed account provided by the woman’s attorney regarding the alleged sexual assault represents one of the most severe accusations against McGregor throughout his career.

This incident adds to a series of other claims that have portrayed him engaging in violent and criminal behavior. To provide context, here is a timeline highlighting the arrests (and near-arrests) that have cast a shadow over the 34-year-old athlete’s professional journey.

Conor McGregor controversy embroiled history

McGregor’s encounters with law enforcement have predominantly revolved around his driving behavior. In 2017 and 2018, he pleaded guilty to speeding offenses, paid fines, and faced a six-month suspension of his driving privileges in the latter case.

Last year, he faced six traffic charges, including driving without insurance and a license, resulting in his sports car being impounded. Subsequently, he was charged with careless driving.

The legal proceedings for this case have progressed slowly, with no plea entered yet, and the next hearing adjourned until December 2023.

In a disturbing incident, McGregor and his entourage were captured on video engaging in a bizarre and alarming act of aggression. After a UFC media event at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, they pelted a bus with various objects, including a hand dolly and a guard rail.

This act resulted in the shattering of the vehicle’s windows and windshield, causing injuries to multiple UFC fighters aboard. As a consequence, these fighters were unable to participate in their upcoming bouts.

The assault was allegedly motivated by retaliation against UFC fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov, who had confronted Conor’s teammate and close friend Artem Lobov earlier that week at a hotel.

In January of 2022, reports emerged of a woman in her 40s accusing Conor McGregor of physically assaulting her during his birthday celebration on his yacht in Ibiza, Spain, the previous July.

According to her account, Conor became verbally abusive and resorted to punching, kicking, and even threatening to drown her. She claimed to have suffered a wrist injury from one of McGregor’s blows and, fearing for her life, was compelled to escape the yacht.

She was eventually rescued by a Red Cross boat.

The allegations leveled against the former UFC champion have been met with utmost seriousness by the Miami Police Department, compelling them to launch a comprehensive investigation into the matter.

Recognizing the significance of the situation, the NBA also issued a statement, emphasizing their cooperation with the Miami Heat to collect pertinent information. The City of Miami Police has officially confirmed the initiation of a formal investigation.

In response to the allegations, the UFC has released a statement acknowledging their awareness of the accusations directed at Conor McGregor. They have expressed their firm dedication to diligently gather all essential facts and information concerning the case, demonstrating their commitment to addressing the matter with utmost gravity.
