UFC's McGregor arrested in Miami

The former dual weight UFC champion was eventually released from Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on $12,500 bail, escorted to a black SUV before being driven back to his Miami Beach Mansion. The fighter knocked the phone from his hand and stomped on it several times, the report said.

Conor McGregor was arrested on charges of strong-arm robbery and criminal Miami Beach, Florida.

Conor McGregor was arrested and subsequently released by Miami Beach Police on Monday.

The robbery count carries a US$7,500 bond, while the criminal mischief bond is US$5,000.

McGregor was arrested later Monday evening after detectives reviewed surveillance video of the incident.

McGregor isn't a newcomer to arrests that happen near UFC events.

The headstrong Irish slugger wrote on Instagram: "Patience in this world is a virtue I continue to work on". "I want to say to my friends, my family, my fans - thank you for your support".

TMZ reported it appeared McGregor went to the Miami home where he was staying, while the alleged victim subsequently filed a police report.

He pled guilty to disorderly conduct, and was sentenced to community service and an anger management course.

The UFC fighter was reportedly leaving the LIV club from the Fountainbleau resort on the Atlantic coast.

McGregor has yet to issue a full statement on his latest brush in with the law.

McGregor is serving a six-month ban following his brawl involving Khabib Nurmagomedov and his team after UFC 229 in October.

Two member's of Nurmagomedov's corner then leapt into the cage to attack McGregor.

In October 2018, McGregor was handed a six month suspension and a $50,000 fine following a violent bus attack at the Barclays Centre in NY.
