Prosecutors in Florida say they are ready to proceed to trial in a case against Conor McGregor over an alleged phone-smashing incident.

The mixed martial arts fighter was arrested in Miami Beach on 11 March.

Police say the alleged victim in the incident was trying to take a picture of the Dubliner outside a hotel when he slapped the man's phone out of his hand, stomped on it several times and walked away with it.

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

Following that court hearing, prosecutors released CCTV footage of the alleged incident.

The case came before Miami-Dade County Court again today.

Mr McGregor did not appear in person as he was not required to be present.

A trial date has been set for Monday 13 May and Mr McGregor will need to be on stand-by to appear before the judge.

Following today's hearing, Mr McGregor's lawyer Sam Rabin told RTÉ News: "I look forward to resolving this case on May 13th."
