FORMER UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor has been charged with robbery in the US after allegedly stamping on a fan’s mobile phone.

Miami Beach Police said the Irish fighter slapped the victim’s phone out of his hands and “stomped on it several times” after the man attempted to take a picture of the UFC star.

The report added: “The defendant then picked up the victim’s phone and walked away with it.”
