McGregor in clear as U.S. prosecutors drop phone theft charges


Back in March, McGregor was arrested in Miami Beach, Florida on charges of strong-arm robbery and criminal mischief.

During a hearing Monday in which McGregor did not make an appearance, the State Attorney's Office declared that the victim had recanted his story regarding the issue.

In a conclusive memo, Assistant State Attorney Khalil Madani explained the situation.

Of course, I'm not sure anybody has asked Conor McGregor if he's like to co-star in Creed III and if he does, it's always possible something could be worked out.

On 10 April, lawyers for McGregor entered pleas of not guilty to charges of "robbery by sudden snatching" and criminal mischief.

Abdirzak dropped his civil suit against the former two-division UFC title holder after reaching an out-of-court settlement last month. 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.

Any conviction would have had dire consequences on McGregor's ability to travel to the U.S. But with the charges dropped, he's a free man.

This isn't McGregor's first run-in with the law, as he was arrested in NY back in April of 2018 after he attacked a bus with rival fighters on board.

Despite the looming issues, McGregor has been an active presence on social media, promoting his signature whiskey and praising UFC fights. The rivals brawled in the cage immediately afterward, prompting the Nevada Athletic Commission to suspend them both.
