Conor McGregor has avoided charges in the Corsica sexual assault probe.
Back in September 2020, accusations of indecent exposure surfaced during a trip in Corsica. A complaint was filed on September 10 and alleged acts that “could be described as attempted sexual assault and sexual exhibition.”
A rep for McGregor vehemently denied any wrongdoing.
“Conor Mcgregor vigorously denies any accusations of misconduct. He has been interviewed and released.”
Things got to the point where McGregor discussed being at a low point due to these accusations and insisted that the allegation was bogus. Here’s what he said on his social media account following concerns about his mental health.
“I will never kill myself no matter how many wish for it. Try set me up all yous f—ing want over and over and over the truth will always set me free! Be it baby father claims, rape, indecent exposure, bulls–t WhatsApp group s–t. You f—ing name it. Never will I fold! The truth is the truth and it gives me wings! I know my character! God bless DNA! God bless Cctv! God bless Eye witness! God bless the truth! The truth is power! I am free! Never will a dime be paid to anyone coming at me with vicious lies! Not now not f—ing ever! I will fight! And I am only beginning my fight! All these past incidents you will see! They will not be forgotten! I will not allow these people to just accuse me and then disappear into the dark to attempt to ruin someone else life! No f—ing way!”
Officials have now confirmed that the case against McGregor has been dropped due to a lack of evidence. McGregor’s rep, Karen Kessler, told TMZ Sports the following.
“They [French authorities] did a criminal investigation. They collected DNA and the DNA evidence confirmed McGregor’s account.”
McGregor is scheduled to return to the Octagon on July 10. He’ll meet Dustin Poirier in a trilogy bout. The fight will headline UFC 264 inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
