Conor McGregor Says He’s Bothered By Sexual Assault Allegations, Focused On Winning UFC Belt

Former two division UFC champion Conor McGregor faces Donald Cerrone in the main event of UFC 246.

The former UFC champion has a pair of sexual assault allegations levied against him, but McGregor cannot speak on them at the moment.

“Look, just no,” McGregor said in an interview with ESPN (via Nolan King of MMA Junkie). “I can’t say anything about this. It just has to take place.”

It should be noted that while McGregor has been accused of multiple sexual assaults, no charges have been filed against him at this time.

McGregor admits that he is bothered by the accusations, but the focus right now is on capturing another UFC title.

“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.”

UFC 246 takes place on Saturday, January 18 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
