Ahmed Abdirzak, the man who had his phone broken and stolen by Conor McGregor in Miami this week has said that the UFC fighter tricked him with an invitation to a handshake.

The man, who is from the UK and was on holidays in Miami at the time, said he spotted McGregor when he was out at LIV nightclub on the Sunday night.

“On the way out, we were just waiting on our vehicle from the valet… and as soon as we go pick it up we see Conor McGregor.

“I try take out my phone, and as soon as I take out my phone McGregor was there, and he tried to come shake my hand…

Around 10:30 p.m. ET Monday, Miami-Dade County’s (Fla.) Corrections and Rehabilitation site no longer listed McGregor as an inmate in custody at the facility. He had been arrested and booked with bonds totaling $12,500.

McGregor allegedly took the phone from a man taking photos of him outside the hotel and smashed it. According to Miami-Dade County jail’s website, McGregor’s charges in Miami of strong-arm robbery and criminal mischief of $1,000 or more came with bonds of $7,500 and $5,000, respectively. Both are felony charges.
