Conor McGregor denies claims he raped woman at NBA final on same night he hit a mascot | The Sun

CONOR McGregor has denied claims he raped a woman at the NBA final on the same night he hit a mascot.

The UFC fighter has been accused of assaulting the woman in the men's bathrooms at the game in Florida on June 9.

According to letters sent by an attorney, McGregor is accused of the assault following a win by the Denver Nuggets against Miami Heat at the NBA finals.

A representative for Conor McGregor told TMZ the "allegations are false.

"Mr McGregor will not be intimidated."

It is understood authorities are aware of the claim – but there is no suggestion McGregor has been arrested.

Lawyers say the woman is seeking settlements with the NBA, the Heat and McGregor.

The claims have surfaced less than 24 hours after it emerged McGregor and his fiancee Dee Devlin are expecting their fourth child.

On the night of the June 9 final, McGregor was invited onto the court during a break in the game.

As he began addressing the crowd, McGregor was interrupted by Miami Heat mascot Burnie – who was wearing a pair of golden boxing gloves.
