Charges against retired UFC star Conor McGregor have been dropped, after the victim stopped co-operating with investigators.
Ahmed Abdirzak got into a dust-up with the 30-year-old fighter in March outside a Florida nightclub.
Abdirzak was filming the former UFC champion, when McGregor angrily "punched" the phone out of the man's hand, according to a lawsuit filed later.
The phone fell to the ground and McGregor repeatedly stomped on it, the suit said.
McGregor and the complainant have since settled a civil lawsuit, and on Tuesday (NZT), prosecutors confirmed the England resident didn't wish to return to the United States and had recanted his initial story.
Shortly after the settlement was reached, Abdirzak's attorney wrote to the prosecutor to say the victim "had been made whole" by McGregor.
After he "had some time to reflect" on the encounter with McGregor, Abdirzak didn't think the fighter meant to injure him or damage his phone, according to a final memo by the state attorney's office.
McGregor is a former two-division Ultimate Fighting Championship titleholder who famously fought and lost to boxing legend Floyd Mayweather in August 2017.
He was planning a comeback, but then retired the same day The New York Times reported he was under investigation in Ireland on allegations of sexual assault.
The Irishman has since been linked with a return to the cage at the end of 2019.
