Prosecutors in Florida have dropped all charges against mixed martial artist Conor McGregor after he was accused of stamping on a fan's mobile phone.

That evaporated once the alleged victim refused to cooperate, and charges were dropped.

The 30-year-old fighter was arrested on March 11 after the dust-up with fan Ahmed Abdirzak, who along with other onlookers tried taking video of McGregor outside the iconic Fontainebleau hotel. "The victim of the crime does not wish to return to the United States and prosecute this case", prosecutor Khalil Madani announced during a brief hearing on Monday.

Madani concluded that Abdirzak "has credibility issues as he's changed his previously sworn testimony".

Conor McGregor no longer finds himself in hot water over smashing a person's cell phone in Miami. But when the value of Adbirzak's phone was later downgraded, they were reduced to robbery by sudden snatching, a third-degree felony, and misdemeanor criminal mischief, which exposed him to six years in prison.

As a result, the case against McGregor will not proceed.

The incident marked the latest of several incidents involving McGregor and various law enforcement services. Most recently McGregor has said that he's done with MMA, so if he wanted to try his hand at movies, now is as good a time as any. He was planning a comeback, but then retired the same day The New York Times reported he was under investigation in Ireland on allegations of sexual assault. McGregor's six-month term expired in April.
