UFC Absolute Fighting Championship President Dana White commented on the detention in France of former champion promoter Conor McGregor for charges of attempted sexual violence and indecent behavior. This was reported by the ESPN portal.
“Conor has resigned. I did not speak to him. I am sure he does not need my help or advice. If he had done so, he could have called. I’m not defending Conor, and I don’t know enough about what happened, but his life has been crazy since he’s been megapopular, and his public appearances are always provoking crazy things,” White said.
McGregor sailed to Corsica Island September 10 on a boat with his fiancée, Dee Delvin, where he was taken to the police station. The police report said it was an “attempted sexual assault and exhibitionism. The incident was only known to have taken place in a bar. The athlete’s representatives told the portal that he denied all charges and was released from the station after the interview.
This is not the first time that Macgregor has had problems with the law. In 2019, he had a fight in the bar with another visitor. The soldier decided to treat all visitors to a whisky of his own production, and an elderly man refused to drink. The bar’s staff then poured all the drinks produced by the athlete into the toilet and called on the industry to boycott their sale.
