Conor McGregor’s alleged victim has opened up about the altercation between the two men.

Ahmed Abdirzak told TMZ late Tuesday afternoon that the Irish-born UFC star duped him into believing he was going to shake his hand at a club in Miami. (SLIDESHOW: These UFC Women Really Hate Wearing Clothes)

That’s when McGregor allegedly snatched his phone, smashed it and then took off in a car. He also claimed the champion fighter told him to “get the f**k” out of his face during the altercation. McGregor was taken into police custody and charged Monday. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Greatest Ronda Rousey Photos On The Internet)

Once again, I guess that I have to be the voice of reason here. Is it bad for McGregor if he’s guilty of smashing a guy’s phone? It’s not great, but I hardly think it justifies the felony strong-armed robbery charge he’s facing.

That seems a bit much. It’s a phone. McGregor didn’t allegedly murder anybody. He might have smashed a phone or he might not have.

Who really knows at this point! This is why we must wait for the facts to play out.

Let’s all be real here. McGregor is almost certainly going to end up writing a check and this whole thing is going to disappear.

Let’s not pretend for a single second like Dana White or anybody else in a position of power is going to allow this to ruin the UFC star’s career.

Abdirzak also said there’s a video coming out soon. I can’t wait to see that. Anybody who thinks that’s going to change my opinion of McGregor is out of their mind.

He gets paid to brutalize men in an octagon. He doesn’t get paid to be a saint.
