Video emerges of Conor McGregor stomping on UFC fan's phone at Miami hotel

UFC 229 Khabib v McGregor: Weigh-Ins

Conor McGregor is always in the media spotlight, but more light was shined on him this week after an altercation with a fan down in Miami, Florida.

McGregor was arrested on Monday morning and charged with 'strong-armed robbery and misdemeanour criminal mischief' during an incident at the Fontainebleau Hotel at 5:20 am.

The police report stated: "The victim attempted to take a picture of the defendant with his cell phone. The defendant slapped the victim's phone out of his hand, causing it to fall to the floor.

"The defendant then stomped on the victim's phone several times, damaging it. The defendant then picked up the victim's phone and walked away with it, depriving him of it. The defendant was located and arrested."

Video footage of the incident has since emerged and appears as though the police report is accurate, as you can see McGregor stamp on the phone on the ground.

The alleged victim, Ahmed Abdirzak, can also be heard pleading with McGregor, saying: "Let me get my phone, man!"

Abdirzak told TMZ Sports he was just trying to take a photo of Notorious on his phone when the former UFC Champion lured him in by appearing to offer a handshake, but instead snatched the phone and smashed it.

This isn't the first time which McGregor has been in trouble with the law, as he was arrested last year for throwing a metal dolly at a bus, which had rival Khabib Nurmagomedov inside, during the media day of UFC 223.

He was also involved in an altercation with Khabib's team after the two fought at UFC 229, to which he is currently serving a six-month suspension for.

McGregor will return to court on April 10, just four days after his six-month suspension from the UFC expires on April 6.

Whether or not this latest setback will affect his future fight plans remain to be seen, but he has been rumoured for several bouts once he is able to step inside the Octagon again.

The fight with the most traction is with Donald Cerrone, but he has also been rumoured to complete the trilogy that has long been speculated with rival Nate Diaz.
