Conor McGregor denies assaulting woman on his yacht

By Marc Raimondi

Conor McGregor has denied allegations that he attacked a woman on his yacht last summer in Ibiza.

Ultima Hora, a newspaper in Spain, released a report Tuesday with allegations from an Irish woman that the UFC superstar punched her and threatened to drown her at a party last July on his boat. The paper reported that the matter will go before the investigating court in Ibiza, an island off the coast of the Spanish mainland.

"Mr. McGregor is steadfast in his denial of all the accusations made by a guest on his boat," McGregor spokesperson Karen Kessler told ESPN on Tuesday in a statement.

The unnamed woman initially told police that it was not McGregor but another man who attacked her immediately following the incident, according to reports from Spanish media at the time. Because she did not accuse him at that point, no case was opened in McGregor's native Ireland, per Ultima Hora, but now it will be investigated in Ibiza in light of the change in allegations by the woman.
