Khabib And Malignaggi Responds To Conor McGregor's Arrest In Miami
Khabib Nurmagomedov appears to have responded to Conor McGregor's arrest in Miami.
Police arrested McGregor for smashing a fan's phone at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel.
The Miami Herald says the fan was trying to get a photo with the UFC mega-star before he apparently threw it on the ground and jumped on it several times.
The Irishman is being charged with strong-armed robbery and misdemeanour criminal mischief.

Nurmagomedov has also weighed in on McGregor's arrest by sharing a cryptic post.
Fake play, but people believe in it, writing about it, discussing. That's how show business works.

Last year, McGregor was ordered to have anger management lessons and perform community services after attacking a bus carrying UFC fighters in Brooklyn.
He's also currently sidelined through suspension after the Nevada State Athletic Commission handed out a six-month retrospective ban for his role in the post-fight brawl which marred UFC 229.
Meanwhile, the 30-year-old former 'champ-champ' is expected to return to the famed Octagon in September.
