Conor McGregor backstage before a UFC fight (Zuffa LLC)

Conor McGregor is now facing a multi-million dollar personal injury lawsuit in Ireland after being sued by a woman who is accusing the UFC star of assaulting and raping her at a Dublin hotel on Dec. 9, 2018.

The suit came into action this week after no charges had been filed against McGregor following a two-year investigation by Irish police. The New York Times shared information from the statement of claim. The statement alleges that McGregor “beckoned” her to the bedroom before assaulting and raping her. According to the statement, the woman was later examined in a sexual assault treatment unit and her body was found to be mostly bruised and she had abrasions on her face, neck, and breast.

The woman has not been able to work since May 2019 and is now seeking compensation of about $1.79 million to $2.13 million that would cover her loss of current and future earnings.

McGregor will return to UFC competition this Saturday, Jan. 23, when he faces Dustin Poirier in an important lightweight bout.
