Civil suit against UFC star McGregor dropped

The man who sued Conor McGregor for allegedly smashing his cellphone on March 11 in Miami has dropped a civil lawsuit against the UFC star, according to online records.

The lawsuit was dismissed with prejudice in Miami-Dade County court on Monday at the request of Ahmed Abdirzak, who had sought at least $15,000 in damages.

McGregor, 30, is still facing criminal charges for the alleged incident. He has filed a written plea of not guilty to one felony charge of robbery by sudden snatching and misdemeanor criminal mischief. His next court date is scheduled for April 10.

According to a report from The New York Times, McGregor is currently under investigation for an alleged sexual assault in his native Ireland. He has not been charged with a crime in connection to that matter.

McGregor (21-4) announced his retirement from mixed martial arts late last month, but has since dropped hints he intends to fight again. The former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion hasn't fought since a submission loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October. That loss is McGregor's only UFC appearance in the past two years.
