Conor McGregor Releases Statement Regarding Arrest, Incident In Miami

The MMA superstar pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct charges in July 2018 after throwing a hand-truck into a bus window at a media event at the Barclays Center, in Brooklyn, N.Y., in April ahead of UFC 223, which was captured on video and shared on social media. He then stomped the phone, picked it up and walked away with it.

McGregor was arrested on Tuesday NZT and released later on a bail bond of US$12,500 (NZ$18,298).

Ahmed Abdirzk, the alleged victim, told TMZ on Wednesday that the whole kerfuffle started when he saw McGregor while waiting for his auto at the nightclub valet station. "He's a fan of McGregor's".

Conor McGregor will face a United States court next month in connection with the alleged theft of a man's phone in Florida. The victim subsequently filed a police report in the nearest police station. He said McGregor actually approached him and offered a handshake. He tried to ask for his phone back but the request went for naught.

The findings were reported in Ophthalmology Retina , a publication of the American Academy of Ophthalmology . He also claimed that the learning model could drastically slow down the progression of Alzheimer's disease.


Abdirzk, who valued the phone at $1,000 in the police report, said it was more about what was on the phone that hurts him. Should that happen, it places the brash-talking Irishman in another bad light after a series of skirmishes that have tarnished his image somewhat. Donald Cerrone has been mentioned and even Ben Askren aired his openness to facing the 30-year-old mixed martial artist.

The new arrest comes at a bad time because Conor McGregor was arrested recently and had just completed his sentence in the dolly attack case. And just when things were simmering down for McGregor, another off-cage issue pops up. All that will depend on Abdirzak and his legal counsel.
