A DNA test has cleared Conor McGregor of the accusation that he fathered a love child in Liverpool two years ago.
The repeated accusations came from a woman, who said that she met and slept with McGregor while he was in Liverpool to attend the Grand National in April 2017.
But according to the DNA test, there is a zero per cent possibility that McGregor is the father of the young girl, who will turn two in January.
It's understood that the UFC fighter is now considering a defamation case against the news outlets who covered the story that he had fathered a love child in Liverpool.
McGregor has two children of his own, both with long-time partner Dee Devlin.
