MMA star Conor McGregor broke cover to sign autographs on the streets of Manhattan days after being accused of sexual assault.
McGregor, 34, was quickly mobbed by fans as he left his New York City hotel on Saturday.
He appeared to be attending a children’s birthday party, as he was surrounded by security holding superhero-themed gifts and balloons.
McGregor wore an all-white outfit for his weekend jaunt, which appeared to be a $2,500 Gucci polo with $1,800 shorts.

While the former MMA champion appeared to be in good spirits on her Big Apple outing, there was no sign of her fiance Dee Devlin, who recently announced she is pregnant with the couple’s fourth child.
McGregor has come under fire in recent days after being accused of sexually assaulting a woman in a VIP bathroom at an NBA Finals game.
The woman met McGregor at a game at the Kaseya Center and was leaving the arena, when she claims his security told her he was asking her in the bathroom.
Once inside the bathroom, she claims he forced her to perform oral sex, spit on her and forcibly kissed her.
This is not the first allegation against the fighter. In 2019, The New York Times reported that McGregor was under investigation by Irish police for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman in a Dublin hotel in December 2018.
Soon after, a second allegation surfaced that he had assaulted a woman in a car earlier that month. He denied the allegations.

His accuser claimed that McGregor spat on her and on himself when she tried to wake him up. The woman’s attorney told Newstimesuk.com that she went to police on Sunday to report the incident but was turned away and advised to seek legal help.
Days later, she handed over the clothes she was wearing at the time, claiming they proved she had ‘spit’ on him during the alleged ordeal.
McGregor has denied the allegations. ‘These allegations are false. Mr McGregor will not be intimidated,’ his attorney said in a statement.
In the striking new footage, her accuser can be seen sitting next to the MMA fighter inside the club minutes after she claims she was sexually assaulted.
The pair are seen holding drinks as the woman gestures. McGregor then says something inaudible before walking away.
The footage, obtained by TMZ Sports, was shot inside Miami’s Kaseya Center at 12:40 a.m. on June 10 — about half an hour after the woman was seen being led into a bathroom by McGregor.

New footage shows Conor McGregor sitting at a club table with the MMA fighter who claims he sexually assaulted her in a bathroom minutes later.
According to the woman’s attorney, Arielle Mitchell, the video showed her client and McGregor ‘visibly awkwardly interacting with each other.’
He claims that the bathroom was a complete contrast to how they were interacting before the encounter.
‘My client has always said there will be before and after videos, and in those videos he insists the difference in their interactions will be visually noticeable,’ Mitchell said in a statement to TMZ Sports.
This is yet another video that supports what my client has said and what he has told the police since the beginning of this incident.’
McGregor has vehemently denied the allegations – his attorney says the clip proves more false.
Barbara R. “While the claimant’s story has changed again, our account of the evening has never changed,” Lanes said in a statement.
‘This video only strengthens our position. We await the speedy conclusion of the investigation.’
McGregor was in Miami for Game 4 of the Miami Heat’s NBA Finals against the Denver Nuggets.

The accused’s attorney said he met McGregor at an NBA Finals game the night of the incident. He was invited by the NBA and shocked fans by knocking out mascot Bernie, who had to be hospitalized.
According to the legal demand letter issued not only to McGregor’s attorney, but also to the Heat and the stadium, McGregor’s security summoned the woman to the VIP men’s restroom as she was leaving the building.
‘After the game, and after Mr. McGregor sent Miami Heat mascot Barney to the hospital, Mr. McGregor escalated his aggressive, unprovoked and abusive behavior by violently sexually assaulting and beating the firm’s client in the men’s bathroom at the Kaseya Center.
‘Mr. McGregor, aided and abetted by NBA and Miami Heat Kasia security, physically forced the victim through security into the men’s bathroom, separated her from her friend and locked her inside with Mr. McGregor and his security guard.
‘Once isolated and trapped in the VIP men’s bathroom at the Kaseya Centre, security refused to let him out or allow anyone else, including his friend, inside the bathroom.
‘Mr. McGregor then appeared from inside the handicap stall and stuck his tongue in the victim’s mouth and kissed her aggressively,’ according to the legal letter.

The woman’s attorney said he then told her she needed to use the bathroom.
While he was in the stall, he said, McGregor ‘took out his penis and shoved it down the victim’s throat’.
He claims he was able to get her off him, but says he then spit on her and himself ‘in a desperate attempt to stiffen his flaccid penis.’
She claims she then tried to run away, but said McGregor ‘aggressively grabbed her, pinned her against the wall’ and tried to rape her.
‘Fortunately, Mr McGregor’s penis was too sluggish for full penetration and the victim continued to elbow Mr McGregor and eventually ran away,’ according to the letter.
The claims came less than 24 hours after McGregor and his fiance Dee Devlin are expecting their fourth child.
McGregor and Devlin already have three children; Conor Jr., Croia Mairhead and Rian — aged six, four and two respectively.
‘Things are going well,’ McGregor said of his family life.
‘We have another one on the way. There’s a lot going on,’ he said during a TV appearance in Ireland.
In a statement about the allegations, Heat said: ‘We are aware of the allegations and are conducting a full investigation. Pending the outcome of the investigation, we will withhold further comment.’
The UFC said: ‘The organization is aware of the recent allegations regarding Conor McGregor and will continue to gather additional details regarding the incident.
‘The UFC will allow the legal process to conclude before making any additional statements.’
