山东十一选五预测 www.3ly15.cn Hours after bonding out of jail in South Florida, Conor McGregor has made his first public comments.

The former two-division UFC champion, who was arrested Monday after an alleged incident involving a man's cell phone outside a hotel, posted a picture of himself on Instagram with a brief caption following his release from jail in Miami.

McGregor was arrested after an incident outside the Foutainbleau Miami Beach hotel, where he allegedly took a cell phone from a man who was taking photos of him and smashed it. McGregor proceeded to pick it up and walk away. He was charged with one count of strong-arm robbery and one count criminal mischief of $1,000 or more and was released from Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center after posting the $12,500 total bond.

Not long afterward, McGregor issued a statement about working on patience and thanked his fans.

Patience in this world is a virtue I continue to work on.

I love my fans dearly. Thank you all ??

Miami's CBS-4 TV released video footage of McGregor leaving jail wearing gray sweatpants and a T-shirt from his own August McGregor clothing line - seemingly the same outfit the ex-champ was wearing in his Instagram post.

On Monday, a spokeswoman for McGregor's attorney, Miami-based Samuel Rabin, issued a statement to MMA Junkie that said: "Early this morning Conor McGregor was involved in a minor altercation involving a cell phone that resulted in a call to law enforcement. Mr. McGregor appreciates the response of law enforcement and pledges his full cooperation."

According to McGregor's arrest report ( which can be viewed here) "The victim and the defendant were exiting the Fountainbleau hotel and the victim attempted to take a picture of the defendant with his cell phone. The defendant slapped the victim's phone out of his hand, causing it to fall to the floor. The defendant then stomped on the victim's phone several times, damaging it. The defendant then picked up the victim's phone and walked away with it, depriving him of it. Victim stated the phone was valued at $1,000. The defendant was located and arrested."

This isn't McGregor's first time in hot water with the justice system. The former champ just recently completed community service to clear charges stemming from the infamous bus attack that took place during UFC 223 fight week.

The Irish star is currently serving a suspension for his role in another incident, the brawl that ensued following his UFC 229 loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov. McGregor is eligible to return to the octagon April 6.
