Florida prosecutors have dropped all charges against UFC star Conor McGregor after he was arrested for allegedly smashing a fan's phone.

The Irish fighter had been charged with strong‑armed robbery and misdemeanour criminal mischief.

But state prosecutors say the alleged victim had gone abroad and stopped co‑operating with police.

The incident took place on 11 March as McGregor, left the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel.

According to a police report filed at the time, the fan was trying to take pictures on the phone when the fighter allegedly knocked it out of his hand, before stamping on it, picking it up and leaving with it.

The Prosecutor told the Miami Court that the victim of the crime does not wish to return to the United States and prosecute this case.

The phone was valued at $1,000.

McGregor had already settled a civil lawsuit with the victim out of court.
