And once again the 32-year-old Irishman has found himself on the wrong side of the law. While being on a trip to France with his fiancee Dee Devlin, the “Notorious” one was arrested.
This time there was no dolly incidents, or assaulting the elderly in an Irish pub. And now, it’s a topic that has come up in his past on other allegations. Conor McGregor was arrested for attempted sexual assault and sexual exhibition, and questioned by police.
This incident happened on September 10th in Corsica. The French trip wasn’t all vacation as he was in prep to partake in a 180 kilometer 24 hour charity water bike race. Although this situation for Conor McGregor wasn’t given as the sole reason, he has since withdrawn from the event. The visit from the law wasn’t his only unexpected guest.
Although the UFC is yet to agree to put on a card in the country, legal woes in other countries can have a huge effect for the troubled but very wealthy athlete. It’s not out of the question for a country to say; sorry we won’t give you a visa to fight here, no matter what the financial gain would be.
The Mystic Man last appeared in The Octagon, in January 2020, and then after months of inactivity, following the emergence of Global Pandemic, he announced his 3rd career retirement in June. However, the speculations about his return were ever rife.
Before this event, he was having a quiet 2020, and there were discussions that UFC might have lost opportunity with Conor McGregor.
