UFC President Dana White Reacts To Conor McGregor's Sexual Assault Allegations
McGregor hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons on Saturday when he was arrested on allegations of sexual assault and indecent exposure.
The former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion was interviewed and released by officials.
His legal team issued a statement as he vehemently denied the claims.
White has since spoken about McGregor's situation at a press conference following UFC Fight Night: Waterson vs. Hill.

"I don't know enough about the Conor situation. I don't know about it. I know what you've read.
"I've read the same things. Conor is retired, I haven't talked to him.
"I'm sure he doesn't need my help or advice, but if he did he can call," he added.
McGregor's representatives told TMZ Sports: "Conor McGregor vigorously denies any accusations of misconduct."
Audie Attar, CEO of Paradigm Sports Management, added: "I am irate and putting out a warning loud and clear: Conor McGregor is not and will not be a target for those seeking to score a headline or a payday."
McGregor hasn't fought since his comeback victory over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 in January.
He subsequently walked away from the UFC after growing frustrated with the promotion.
