Prosecutors in Miami have dropped all criminal charges against MMA star Conor McGregor over an alleged phone-smashing incident that took place in March.

On Monday, Miami prosecutors dropped one charge of felony robbery and one of misdemeanor criminal mischief during a hearing that was held.

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

The alleged incident took place outside the Fontainebleau Hotel on March 11.

"Based on the witness's credibility issues, his unwillingness to respond to a subpoena and the inability of the witnesses to testify as to his subjective mindset, the State of Florida can not prove the charges against Mr. McGregor beyond a reasonable doubt", Madani wrote.

United States targets $300B of Chinese goods for new tariff hikes
Tariffs on Chinese goods increased from 10% to 25% on Friday, making the underlying cost of those items higher for US customers. The paper said China wasn't to blame for the trade deficit and that US companies were largely profitable in China.

According to Forbes he is worth around 100 million USA dollars (£75 million), while his social media accounts show a life lived in luxury on private jets and behind the wheels of high-performance cars.

But prosecutors in the Florida city have dropped charges against the fighter - because the state believed it could no longer prove them.

McGregor's legal team is understood to have reached an out-of-court settlement with Ahmed Abdirzak, the victim of the Irishman's misconduct.

Eh, I don't know about that man.
It should be noted that McGregor has not been charged with a crime in that matter. He agreed to a plea deal and avoided being deported from the U.S.

McGregor announced his unexpected retirement from mixed martial arts earlier this year but has since appeared to recant this several times on social media in recent months. McGregor's six-month term expired in April.
