Anger management? Conor McGregor still has work to do on himself! His potential implication in a bar fight in Dublin recently proves this, just like the incident that occurred at the beginning of March with a fan in Florida. It was this violent behavior in front of the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami that has been sparking interest recently following the release of a video recorded by a nearby surveillance camera.
Conor plead not guilty
In the video, we can see the Irishman return to the hotel when his future victim, Ahmed Abdirzak approached him to take a photo. We don’t know what was said between the two men because this wasn’t recorded by the surveillance camera, but the UFC star didn’t seem to appreciate this exchange. He rushed towards the fan, knocked his phone out of his hand and stomped on it before taking it and not giving it back…
MMA Junkie has recently explained that McGregor chose to plead not guilty to what happened to reduce the charges. At first, the MMA fighter was accused of ‘grand theft with a weapon’, a second-degree crime which could result in a serious sentence. His lawyer, Sam Rabin, asked them to reduce these charges to a third-degree crime, for which the punishment wasn’t as severe. The next decision surrounding this case will be made in Miami Court on 30th April.
