Conor McGregor has seemingly settled the assault and battery lawsuit he was facing after he allegedly smashed a fan’s phone outside a hotel in Miami.
According to court records, Ahmed Abdirzak filed a notice with the court last week that he was dismissing his lawsuit against the UFC star. Abdirzak is dropping the case with prejudice — meaning he cannot re-file the lawsuit — which usually points to a settlement.
He was suing for assault and battery and seeking damages in excess of $15,000.
McGregor was arrested over the incident, which went down outside the Fountainbleu Hotel in the early morning hours of March 11. Abdirzak claimed he recognized McGregor and took out his phone to snap a picture.
Instead, Abdirzak claimed McGregor grabbed him by the arm and punched his phone to the ground. To make matters worse, he claimed McGregor then picked it up, smashed it on the ground, and began stomping it repeatedly.
McGregor was later charged with one count of robbery and one count of criminal mischief.
