Michael Bisping is never shy to give his opinion, and even managed to give two completely contrasting opinions on the Conor McGregor phone smashing incident.

McGregor was arrested in Miami for allegedly snatching a fan’s phone and stamping on it when he tried to take a picture of the UFC star.

The Irishman has been charged with robbery and criminal mischief and released a statement saying he must work on his patience.

Former UFC middleweight champion Bisping initially came down on the side of McGregor, but quickly changed his mind.

‘I’ll just say it, this guy is a bit of a f*****g d**k to press charges,’ Bisping said on his ‘Believe You Me’ podcast.

‘Well saying that though, hold on. I just got myself a nice new iPhone 10 XR or some s**t. It’s big, it’s bigger than the plus. It’s the big old fancy phone and I really, really like it.

‘But let’s just say you’ve been out there and bought that and you didn’t have much money and somebody took your phone and smashed it to bits, okay fare enough. You’re not just going to take that, are you?’

BGUK_1513973 - ** RIGHTS: WORLDWIDE EXCEPT IN UNITED STATES ** Los Angeles, CA - Conor McGregor is arrested in Miami for allegedly 'smashing a fan's phone' outside a Miami nightclub at 5am. An arrest report says McGregor and a fan were leaving the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel just after 5am Monday morning when the altercation went down. Surveillance footage allegedly shows McGregor slapping the fan's phone out of his hand as he was taking a photo and stomping on it several times. Police say McGregor then walked away with the phone valued at $1,000. The MMA fighter is charged with criminal mischief and strong-armed robbery. Police spent the day investigating the incident before arresting McGregor Monday evening at a home in Miami Beach. He was booked at Miami-Dade Jail and released later Monday night. McGregor's attorney's released the following statement after his arrest: "Last evening Conor McGregor was involved a minor altercation over a cell phone that resulted in a call to law enforcement. Mr McGregor appreciates the response of law enforcement and pledges his full cooperation."

In April last year Bisping commented on McGregor’s attack of the UFC bus which contained future opponent Khabib Nurmagomedov.

‘When you look at the situation and you look at Conor McGregor, here’s a guy who quite literally has the world at his feet,’ the Englishman said on his podcast.

‘He’s got untold wealth. He’s absolutely f*****g loaded. He could never work another day in his life and he’d live a very, very extravagant lifestyle.

‘He’s got every reason to go through this life happy. Happy, with a smile on his face.

‘Just lose the chip, that would be my advice. Just lose the f*****g chip on the shoulder.’

Jorge Masvidal is hopeful he can slap Michael Bisping after he beats Darren Till at UFC London in March.

The American welterweight is scheduled to take on Till in the main event in London, but hopes to see retired British fighter Bisping on fight night.

Bisping and Masvidal have history due to the former champion’s rivalry with Yoel Romero.

Masvidal took exception to Bisping calling his team-mate a cheat and the pair clashed in 2017 twice during UFC 217 fight week, and at one stage needed to be separated by staff and security.

‘He’s going to get it one day when the UFC officials ain’t around,’ Masvidal told BJPenn.com Radio.

‘If I get to see Bisping after the Till fight and slap him up, what a super plus.

Tom Breese vs Cezar Ferreira

‘That’s like a 50K bonus if I just get to slap up that little trick bag in his own city.

‘Oh, I’d pay a good amount of my hard-earned money.

‘Everybody here in this knows we don’t earn the money the easiest way that it can be earned.

‘Man, I would spend a lot of my own money just to be put in the cell with him showcasing it.’

Till and Masvidal is an exciting main event for British fans, with Gunnar Nelson and Leon Edwards also on the main card.

Edwards and Nelson were both vying to fight Till, but the former title challenger accepted Masvidal’s offer ahead of his European rivals.
