UFC star Conor McGregor has formally pleaded not guilty in regards to his ongoing lawsuit. “The Notorious” is currently being charged with felony robbery and misdemeanor criminal mischief after he snatched a man’s phone and stamped on it numerous times.
According to The Independant, the Irish star entered a plea of Not Guilty to Miami-Dade county criminal court. According to online court details the former two division UFC champion was not present in court on Wednesday but his legal team have scheduled an appearance for April 30th and a trial on May 13th.
Ahmed Abdirzak is the victim who’s phone was snatched. The victim, a native of England, is pictured being outside the Fontainebleu Hotel at the same time Conor is leaving. Abdirzak is seen taking a picture of the UFC star, which seemingly prompts Conor to snatch the phone and stamp on it.
Prosecutors released a new video on Wednesday showing the events allegedly in full and with much clearer quality. You can see this video below:
“The Notorious” was last seen in action at UFC 229 where he was defeated by Khabib Nurmagemedov. Following this was the infamous post fight brawl and most recently Conor and Khabib have been embroiled in a Twitter war, which eventually led to Dana White intervening.
