On the same day that UFC superstar Conor McGregor (30) stunned a whole martial art world with hell, the New York Times comes with serious accusations.
According to the newspaper, McGregor is under investigation for sexual assault on a woman in Dublin.
According to the New York Times, this happened in December. The alleged assault must have occurred at the Beacon Hotel in the Irish capital.
Neither McGregor nor his administration nor the police commented on the allegations. The New York Times says it has received information from four people who are familiar with the ongoing investigation. McGregor is not currently charged with the case.
The article for the newspaper is published on the same day that the martial arts star is settling down. The message came from the 30-year-old man himself chirp Tuesday morning.
– Hey you, a quick message: I decided to retire from the sport known as mixed martial arts, writes McGregor.
This is not the first time McGregor is on the verge of law. Last fall, he ended up in one of the biggest scandals in UFC history. Irene was at the center of a mass struggle after the fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov, a game of lost McGregor and now seems to be the last.
Recently, two weeks ago, he was also arrested in Miami for attacking and breaking the phone for a fan.
Five hours later, the Irish superstar was released on bail of about NOK 120,000.
This was the second time in just one year that the 30-year-old was arrested. In April of last year, he was arrested by Brooklyn police in New York after attacking a busload of UFC practitioners with a streetcar.

This is also not the first time the MMA star comes with a message he is posting. The same thing he did in 2016, when he soon announced that he not summation.
Just a few months later, he returned to the octagon and defeated Nate Diaz in the welterweight class, having lost to the American earlier that year. A third meeting between the two has already been described several times and is almost a requirement of MMA fans.
However, one that seems to carry the messages about taking McGregor seriously is UFC president Dana White. On a press release, through MMA journalist Brett Okamoto, on the morning of Tuesday he writes:
"He has more than enough money to put, and his whiskey does very well. It makes sense, and if I were him, I would have settled myself too. He starts to fight but is not working. I'm sure he has a lot going on.
"It was so much fun to watch." He's accomplished incredible things in the sport. I'm happy for him, and I look forward to seeing him as well out of the octagon as he was in it, writes White.
McGregor did 25 professional MMA games in his career, 21 of them winning. In the UFC organization there were eleven games, of which nine ended with victories.
