McGregor’s Manager Denies Sexual Assault Rumors
Following rumors that Conor McGregor was connected to two sexual assault cases, McGregor’s manager has come out in defense of his fighter.
Audie Attar, who represents McGregor through his Paradigm Sport Management firm told Ariel Helwani that the reports of McGregor’s alleged assaults are monstrous rumors.
”The thing about Conor is when he makes a mistake, he owns up to it, and he’s a global icon,” Attar said. “But he’s also a polarizing figure, so he’s the subject of a lot of rumors that take place, and our position is always been that we just don’t comment on rumors.
”But even most recently, in terms of certain allegations, 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, we know what the truth is, so what we have to do is focus on the positives. And while there’s been all this different stuff in the media and the rumor mills if you will, he’s had a great year from a business standpoint.”
The rumors have been swirling around McGregor for nearly a year, but have not kept McGregor from growing his brand and potentially fighting on January 18th, something Attar said could be finalized as soon as this week.
