Miami prosecutors have dropped charges against UFC superstar Conor McGregor stemming from an incident in which the Irishman allegedly smashed a fan's cellphone outside a Miami Beach nightclub on March 11.

According to a report from the Miami Herald, the victim, Ahmed Abdirzak, stopped cooperating with investigators after reportedly reaching a settlement with McGregor last month.

According to the lawsuit, Mr Abdirzak and other fans were videoing Mr McGregor when the fighter allegedly slapped the phone out of Mr Abdirzak's hand, repeatedly stamped on it and walked off with it.

In a conclusive memo, Assistant State Attorney Khalil Madani explained the situation.

Charges against Conor McGregor of robbery and criminal mischief have been dropped by prosecutors in the United States. The charges (one count of felony robbery and one count of misdemeanor criminal mischief) were dropped Monday. "If McGregor was trying to pay him directly, without a civil case, then he would have been in trouble for trying to tamper with or bribe a witness. The way they did it is the way you're supposed to do it, so it doesn't look improper". The incident was captured on video, as McGregor appears to stomp on the device multiple times while Abdirzak pleads "Let me get my phone, man". He agreed to a plea deal and avoided being deported from the U.S.

Despite the looming issues, McGregor has been an active presence on social media, promoting his signature whiskey and praising UFC fights. McGregor's six-month term expired in April.
