Conor McGregor's arrest is latest brush with the law, his bad-boy history includes bus attack and post-fight brawl

Conor McGregor has found himself at the centre of another controversy – this time getting arrested in Miami for allegedly smashing a phone out of a British fan's hand.

The UFC star was charged with strong-arm robbery and misdemeanor criminal mischief, the Miami Beach Police Department confirmed yesterday.

And it's not the first time that McGregor, 30 has fallen foul of the law.

SunSport takes you through the bad boy's incident-packed life… outside and inside the Octagon.

Follow that bus…

In April 2018, at UFC 223's media day, McGregor's future opponent Khabib Nurmagomedov had a minor altercation with his pal, Artem Lobov.

Two days later, during more promotional appearances for the event, McGregor and 20 others attempted to confront Nurmagomedov, who was leaving the Barclays Center in New York on a bus.

McGregor ran alongside the bus, grabbed a metal dolly and threw it, shattering the bus's window.

Fighters Ray Borg and Michael Chiesa, who were on the UFC 223 fight card, were both injured and couldn't participate in the event.

He was charged with three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief.

McGregor was further charged with menacing and reckless endangerment and released on a bail of around £38,000.

Appearing in court, Mystic Mac pled no contest to a count of disorderly conduct.

He was ordered to perform five days of community service and attend anger management classes.

More shenanigans in the Octagon…

When McGregor is in (or near) the Octagon, there's no doubt his animalistic nature kicks in.

After he was forced into a submission at UFC 229 by Khabib Nurmagomedov in their hugely anticipated bout, things got shirty.

Nurmagomedov charged towards McGregor's training partner Dillon Danis.

McGregor and his opponent's cousin Abubakar Nurmagomedov, who were attempting to leave the Octagon got into a scuffle and traded blows.

Nurmagomedov's cornermen Esed Emiragaev and Zubaira Tukhugov entered the melee, as all hell broke loose.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission held the purse until an investigation into the incident was resolved.

Following a thorough investigation, the NSAC announced a six month suspension for McGregor, as well as a fine of around £38,000 in December 2018.

McGregor will be able to fight again on April 6, 2019.

He's a fan of the races…

Usually a man who turns up smart for a posh occasion, McGregor turned his nose up at the strict dress code at the Grand National.

With his Louis Vuitton shirt unbuttoned, flaunting abs and tattoos, he strutted around Aintree like he owned the place.

The party lasted three-days for him and his entourage, who trashed the presidential suite at the Liverpool Hilton, as they soaked up the atmosphere at the gee-gees.

But recently that came back to bite him in the backside…

Liverpool mum Terri Murray claimed McGregor fathered their child during his visit to Aintree.

Her one-year-old daughter Clodagh was born nine months after she allegedly slept with the MMA star, said to have a wealth of £75m, and she demanded he take a DNA test to prove otherwise.

McGregor denied he was the father, saying she slept with one of his friends.

One photos taken of McGregor and Murray, allegedly in the bathroom of his hotel suite, appears to show his hand sliding up the inside of her thigh.

According to reports, McGregor is willing to take a paternity test.

Bellator 187

When McGregor's mate Charlie Ward knocked out opponent John Redmond, Notorious jumped into the cage to celebrate the win.

The problem was he wasn't a licenced cornerman, and the fight was not yet declared officially over.

Referee Marc Goddard stepped in to stop McGregor, who shoved him and even knocked down Redmond when he tried to get up.

Mike Mazzulli, head of the Bellator commission said: "McGregor's conduct jeopardized the health and safety" of fighters who were in the cage during the Ireland event.

"In addition, Mr McGregor assaulted Referee Mark Goddard and a (member of) Bellator staff."

Taking it up a level

McGregor could've been a villain in the James Bond movie, Spectre battling it out with Daniel Craig.

Producers reportedly felt that he was perfect for the role with his popularity soaring.

However, he turned down the opportunity insisting he preferred to concentrate on his training.

"I’m not that person," McGregor told The Independent.

"Ya know what I mean? I’m just doing it having a laugh. Don’t start putting in those serious things."
