CCTV footage shows Conor McGregor smash fan's phone outside Miami hotel

CCTV footage has been released showing the moment Conor McGregor slapped a mobile phone out of a fan's hand, before stamping it into the ground.
McGregor was arrested and charged with strong-arm robbery and criminal mischief after the incident involving 22-year-old Ahmed Abdirzak on March 11.
McGregor is facing criminal charges from the incident, from which The Notorious could face up to six years in prison.
But the Irishman is no longer facing civil action, according to TMZ, who report that Abdirzak's suit was withdrawn - sparking rumours of an out of court settlement.
But the 30-year-old is still set to face US courts, and footage released by the Miami state attorney's office shows hwo things went down outside the Fontainebleau Hotel, after Abdirzak tried to film the UFC star.
It shows McGregor trying to destroy the phone, before picking it up off the floor and trying to walk off with it.
Charges against McGregor have been reduced to felony robbery and misdemeanour criminal mischief since they were initially filed.
McGregor's case is due to be heard in Miami in the coming week, although he will not have to appear in person.
His lawyer, Sam Rabin, recently declared his confidence that McGregor won't have to face any time in jail.
"I believe at the end of the day that we will successfully defend this case,”  he told Newstalk Breakfast.
"I can't tell you what the outcome will be, but I certainly don't see him going to jail over something like this."
Abdirzak has previously claimed that he feared for his life when McGregor allegedly "punched" his iPhone 8 from his hand, before repeatedly stamping on it.
“He did assault me,” Abdirzak told the Mirror at the time of the incident.
“He gave me his hand for me to shake, I have that on camera, I’ve got my phone out, I’m recording me shaking Conor McGregor ’s hand.
“He pulls me in with his hand and with his right-hand slaps my hand with the phone. Like proper power. Full power. Slap my wrist. The phone falls to the floor.
“His security push me out.
“He starts stamping on my phone, picks my phone up off the floor, puts it in his pocket, does the McGregor walk, gets in his chauffeur car and says ‘F*** you’ and goes away.”
