A fan’s phone lost in a match against MMA fighter Connor McGregor when he tried to take a picture of the star who allegedly responded by destroying the electronic device.

The 30-year-old former UFC champion in both the featherweight and lightweight divisions was recently on vacation in Miami Beach with his family when he spent some time at a nightclub inside of a hotel.

As McGregor left the establishment when they closed at 5:00 am, he reportedly came into contact with a fan who decided to grab his cell phone and take a picture of the celebrity athlete.

Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller stood in court with his trademark pink mohawk on Wednesday and was sentenced to three years probation and 100 days in jail for a list of felonies involving multiple clashes with the Orange County police. Miller who is 36 years old, plead guilty to about a dozen felonies and misdemeanors which included assault on a peace officer, battery and resisting arrest.

Miller got a plea bargain with Orange County Superior Court Judge Robert Fitzgerald. He was given double credit for his 50 days of time served, so he will not have to spend any more time behind bars, his attorney Cameron Talley said.

Talley reported that Miller has two strikes on his record now and could have some serious consequences if he violates his probation. According to Miller’s lawyer the former champion MMA fighter had lost his job as a commentator for Fox Sports and became engulfed in depression after allegations of domestic violence with his ex-girlfriend in his Mission Viejo home in 2013. In February a jury acquitted him of those charges that seemed to have triggered his problems.
