Former Ultimate Fighting Championship featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor, who just announced that he’s retiring from the sport, has been accused of sexual assault, the New York Times reported.

The athlete is under investigation in Ireland after a woman made the claim in December, according to the Times, which cited people familiar with the investigation. He hasn’t been charged with a crime, the newspaper said. A representative for McGregor didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
