Conor McGregor sued in South Florida after recent arrest in Miami

Conor Mc Gregor is now facing a civil suit in addition to criminal charges from a Miami nightclub incident

Alleged victim Ahmed Abdirzak, 22, filed the lawsuit in Miami-Dade County.

The entire incident unfolded earlier this week when McGregor was leaving the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami around 5 a.m. Monday morning when Abdirzak claims he was trying to snap a photo of the famous Irishman.

You can hear what sounds like a loud stomp and the fan saying, "Let me get my phone man".

McGregor allegedly "punched" the mobile device out of Abdirzak's hand and began stomping on it repeatedly, his suit says.

The victim was surrounded by McGregor's security while McGregor took the phone, got into his vehicle, and left the scene.

Meanwhile, though the incident is thought to have been captured on surveillance video, the footage won't be made public until "prosecutors give it to the defense, sometime after the arraignment 21 days after the arrest".

Miami Beach police arrested the 30-year-old fighter on Monday afternoon and charged him with robbery and criminal mischief.

McGregor is expected back in court on April 10.

Ahmed Abdirzk, the alleged victim, told TMZ that the entire incident started when he saw McGregor while waiting for his auto at the nightclub valet station.

"As soon as he came to shake my hand, he pulled me in, and he grabbed my phone and started smashing it". "And all these security guards literally surround me, pushing me out of the way".

He was released from custody in the Florida city after posting his bond of $12,500.

McGregor's attorney, Samuel Rabin, called the civil case "a quick effort seeking a payday".

If McGregor is convicted on the two felony counts of robbery/strong-arm and criminal mischief over $1,000, he could get up to 15 years in prison.
