Connor McGregor has been accused of attacking a woman on his yacht in Ibiza last summer.

Ultima Hora, a Spanish publication, reports that a formal complaint against McGregor has been filed by an Irish woman for the alleged assault that took place in July 2022 on the UFC fighter’s yacht in Ibiza, an island off the coast of Spain. According to the complaint, McGregor allegedly punched the woman in the face and threatened to drown her.

McGregor has vehemently denied the allegations, as his spokesperson, Karen Keesler, released a statement to ESPN on Tuesday.

“Mr. McGregor is steadfast in his denial of all the accusations made by a guest on his boat,” read the statement shared by ESPN.

McGregor celebrated his birthday at an Ibiza club on July 16, and the unnamed Irish woman in the report was said to be in attendance, according to Ultima Hora.

The woman later claimed that McGregor invited her into the VIP area and then onto his yacht — where the alleged incident occurred — because he recognized her. McGregor’s accuser, according to Ultima Hora, says that she’s from the same neighborhood as McGregor and knew him prior to his UFC stardom.

The next morning is when McGregor allegedly turned violent, punching his accuser in the stomach and chin before she jumped into the water to escape and was rescued by a Red Cross boat.

A judge in Ibiza will take statements from the woman and witnesses, before making a decision to press charges against McGregor, the Spanish publication reports.
