This new TB12 Center is set to open on Aug. 1 and will offer “cutting-edge fitness services and equipment including metabolic testing, anti-gravity treadmills, and optical systems for gait and unilateral jump analysis,” “all-new small group fitness classes focused on optimizing form, maximizing performance, and preventing injury” and a smoothie bar.

-- Conor McGregor was arrested on Monday after police say he smashed a fan’s phone in Miami Beach.

McGregor and the fan were leaving the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel on Monday morning when the fan tried to take a picture of the UFC star. McGregor is said to have then slapped the phone out of the fan’s hand before stomping on it. He then picked up the phone and walked away with it.

He was not arrested at the scene but detectives later found him at a Miami Beach home. McGregor was booked into a Miami-Dade jail on Monday night, posted bond and was released on Monday night.

In a statement, McGregor’s Miami defense lawyer, Samuel Rabin, said that his client “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.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “He's the guy that's leading everything. He controls the Celtics' destiny.” -- Paul Pierce, on Kyrie Irving
