UFC‘s Conor McGregor issued a statement on his private Facebook page regarding the latest round of allegations against him. The star fighter has been recently accused of indecent exposure. McGregor made it very clear that he’s denying these allegations.
Many might wonder if this is actually Conor McGregor’s real private page. The page that looks to be the UFC star’s page shows friendships with the private pages of many of his family members and head coach, John Kavanagh. However, it’s not confirmed so keep that in mind.
The initial report of the statement came from an Irish Based MMA outlet, Severe MMA before being reported by BJPenn.com. Reporter Harry Williams was the one who posted the screenshot of McGregor’s statement. You can see the former UFC champion’s statement below.

What’s next for the UFC’s McGregor?
It is worth noting that this post from McGregor cannot be seen by the public. However, if this is McGregor’s personal page, you can see that he is adamant about being innocent, and that he’s prepared to fight these allegations. His agent has already made a previous statement.
The former UFC champion has been seen enjoying life after he “retired” from the UFC a few months ago. Of course, nobody actually believes that McGregor is done fighting. This will all have to play out, but it’s another black eye on McGregor’s record outside of the UFC.
It has to be really hard on UFC fans to root for McGregor after all of this. However, many might have sympathy for the former UFC champion due to all of his struggles. With famous people, sometimes we don’t know what’s true and what’s a cash grab.
Above all, what we do know is that there are allegations against McGregor at the moment. This is not something that will likely be resolved right away. It will be interesting to watch this situation play itself out the next few weeks.
