Newly released footage sheds light on the controversial encounter between UFC star Conor McGregor and his SA accuser. Captured shortly after the alleged incident, the video portrays the two individuals sitting together at a club table.
The exclusive footage showcases McGregor and the woman in question holding drinks and engaging in conversation before a noticeable shift occurs. Then McGregor makes an inaudible comment before leaving.
New footage was recorded on June 10 at about 12:40 a.m. inside the Kaseya Centre in Miami. This was just 30 minutes after the lady was seen led into a washroom by McGregor.

The woman’s attorney Ariel Mitchell claims that the video demonstrates how uncomfortably her client and McGregor were conversing with one another. She asserts that their interactions had been quite different until their meeting in the restroom.
While speaking to TMZ Sports, Ariel Mitchell said: “My client has always stated that there would be video of before and after, and in those videos she emphasized that the difference in the interactions between them would be visibly noticeable. This again is another video that supports what my client has been saying and supports what she told the police since the inception of this incident.”
McGregor has refuted the charges. According to his counsel, the video just serves to show how untrue it is.
Barbara R. Llanes said in a statement: “While the claimant’s story has changed yet again our account of the evening has never changed. This video only reinforces our position. We look forward to the swift conclusion of the investigation.”
The woman and McGregor can be seen chatting at the club in another footage that the site has received. He can be seen flexing with the lady who is standing next to him as loud music is playing in the background.
The MMA competitor is shown bringing the lady into a restroom in another video, where she says he abused her.
McGregor’s defenders have dismissed the video showing McGregor guiding the lady into the toilet, claiming it refutes her first claim that he and his security officers pushed her there.
Llanes also said: “The claimant’s lawyer now has changed her story. Mr. McGregor welcomes the investigation, which he firmly believes will show the claims against him are false. After not responding to the demand for money made by claimant’s counsel, she turned to the media to apply pressure. This is no more than a shakedown.”
Mitchell responded by stating: “What the video shows is what my client said that she was sexually assaulted by Connor McGregor in the bathroom of the Kaseya center after game four of the NBA finals.”
“Why aren’t the questions being asked why was Mr. McGregor taking a woman who was not his pregnant fiancé into a bathroom? Why isn’t the question being asked Why did the heat security allow Mr. McGregor to take any female into the men’s bathroom.”
Mitchell continued by saying this is why victims do not report these types of crimes. She went on to say: “They are picked apart and looked at as liars and discouraged from reporting these types of crimes. My client will not be intimidated, shamed or bullied and is moving forward with the police in her pursuit of justice. We will be pursuing every legal avenue available.”
