When Conor McGregor strutted around the court in a red jumpsuit at the Kaseya Center during the NBA Finals, he seemed to have quite the reputation with the Miami Heat. But that doesn’t seem to be the case now.
McGregor and the Heat reportedly had a plan to make their Tidl Sport «cryo» pain spray the «official pain relief partner» of the franchise. But that idea has cooled since his incidents involving the team, according to Page Six.
McGregor had developed a good relationship with the Heat, but two situations in Game 4 of the Finals changed everything.
The first was that McGregor sent the team’s mascot, Burnie, to a hospital after hitting him over the head during a skit that clearly went wrong.

The second and most serious situation involves accusations by a woman who claims that the MMA star raped her in a bathroom at the Kaseya Center.
The pain spray deal no longer appears to be on the table for McGregor.

«This was very bad for a crystal clean organization,» a source told Page Six. «I can’t imagine Heat bosses wanting the Tidl Sports patch on their jerseys. It’s a reminder of the 24 hours of hell the organization went through.»
The woman’s attorney, Ariel Mitchell, claims her client was separated from her friends and forced into a bathroom, where McGregor was allegedly waiting for her, according to the New York Post. Video later surfaced showing McGregor and the victim at a club after the game. They were talking, and he finally left.
Mitchell believes the TMZ Sports video shows the two «visibly awkwardly interacting.»
McGregor has strongly denied the allegations.
«Mr. McGregor will not be intimidated,» said his lawyer, Barbara Llanes.
«While the claimant’s story has changed once again, our account of the night has never changed,» Llanes added about the video. «This video only reinforces our position. We hope that the investigation is concluded quickly.»

TMZ discovered a second video showing McGregor walking the woman into the bathroom hand in hand with others standing near the door.
Mitchell added that her client believed she was being escorted out of the arena when a man in a Denver Nuggets jersey told her, «Conor told me to come get you.»
Video showing McGregor leading her away led Mitchell to say that his client «didn’t even remember who took her to the bathroom until she saw this video.»
Again, Llanes responded.
“After TMZ released the video, the plaintiff’s attorney has now changed her story,” Llanes said. “Mr. McGregor welcomes the investigation, which he strongly believes will prove the claims against him false. After failing to respond to the demand for money made by the plaintiff’s lawyer, she turned to the media for pressure. This is nothing more than extortion. .»
Mitchell later told Fox News Digital that the «extortion» allegations were «false.»

«Mr. McGregor’s team may call this extortion, these allegations are false, but the video is clear. A soon-to-be-married man with a fourth baby on the way is leading a woman he doesn’t know and not his fiancée pregnant to the bathroom,» Mitchell said.
Since then, McGregor has been seen out and about in New York City alongside his fiancée Dee Devlin and their children.
Both the Heat and the NBA were aware of the allegations.
