Conor Mc Gregor has been released on bail in Miami Beach

Just 24 hours after it was reported that UFC superstar Conor McGregor was detained after allegedly stealing and smashing a fan's phone outside of the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami, the former lightweight champion is speaking out for the first time since being discharged from Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center. After that infamous bus attack incident, The Notorious finds himself embroiled in another mess, this time involving a fan who reportedly just wanted a photo with the Irishman. The lawyer of the soldier said that between McGregor and a fan happened "minor altercation". The clip is undeniably short, but it indeed seems to show McGregor stomping on a phone, and the purported victim pleading to get his phone back amid a swarm of security.

It used to feel like Conor McGregor had the world at his fingertips.

McGregor, 30, was booked at Miami-Dade County jail and released on a $12,500 bond Tuesday. Abdirzak claims that the phone is worth $1,000 but there is more significant content of sentimental value on the device. The incident was reportedly caught on camera.

In a recent report by TMZ Sports, the victim gave his version of the story.

According to Abdirzak McGregor then got in a vehicle and drove off, with a hotel manager then approaching him saying that he would be looked after.

Abdirzak said he was angry that personal memories will likely be lost forever even if he does get the phone back. The two had bad blood leading up to their fight and ever since Floyd's victory, McGregor has been jonesing for a rematch.

McGregor's last fight was a defeat in October to Nurmagomedov, which included a post-fight brawl.

UFC star Conor McGregor is in another mess following a minor altercation with a United Kingdom resident in Miami.

As you can see, this isn't an upward trend for McGregor.
