The court heard the banker told police that he never intended to hurt the bouncer, adding: 'I gave him a tap ... I had no idea it would end like this'.
Longworth, who later told police he just gave Taiba 'a tap' and didn't intend hurting him, pleaded guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm, but that was not accepted by the prosecution in the Downing Centre Court on Monday.
The court heard Longworth, worked for UBS Investment Bank in the market support division of its Sydney office, went to Bar 333 on George Street in the city's CBD in September last year but was denied entry by Taiba.
One witness said Taiba 'fell like a tree' after the blow to the head.
Longworth was granted bail last year after his family offered to post more than $500,000 surety.
