The Miami Herald reported that the Dublin native would be booked at Miami-Dade jail Monday night. Abdirzak claims that the phone is worth $1,000 but there is more significant content of sentimental value on the device.
"We ended up at LIV on a Sunday", he said of his brush with Conor McGregor.

Cops in Miami say the courtroom frequent flier faces charges of misdemeanour criminal mischief and strong-armed robbery.
Abdirzk thought McGregor was coming in for a handshake, but instead McGregor allegedly slapped the phone out of Abdirzk's hand and stomped on it several times.
Abdirzak said he was angry that personal memories will likely be lost forever even if he does get the phone back. Conor McGregor is seen on the sidelines before the National Football League game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium on October 14, 2018 in Arlington, Texas. "He came to shake my hand, and as soon as he came to shake my hand, he pulled me in and grabbed my phone and started smashing it", Abdirzak told TMZ Sports.More news: One soldier to face prosecution — Bloody Sunday
According to Abdirzak McGregor then got in a auto and drove off, with a hotel manager then approaching him saying that he would be looked after. "All his security guards literally surrounded me, pushing me out of the way". That's when the hotel manager come to me and said, 'Listen, I'll sort this out.
Abdirzak then accused McGregor of stealing the phone and jumped into a vehicle, with the Brit anxious that he will never see the contents of his phone again which he stated contained pictures of his son.
