Conor McGregor jumps into cage and rows with referee

Conor McGregor

Now, McGregor was rumoured to be facing interim UFC lightweight champion Tony Ferguson at the event, but it had not been announced. Speaking with Ariel Helwani on tonight's MMA Hour, Mike Mazzulli - the president of the Association of Boxing Commissions and Combative and the lead regulator at the event in Dublin on Friday - claims that McGregor has already been punished by the UFC.

He added: "I had some executives from the UFC contact me within two hours of what occurred".

"If I can land other big names out there. people get up me about calling out guys like Conor McGregor but he's an easier fight for me and a massive payday so who wouldn't [want that]", Horn said. They did inform me that he was set to be on the December 30 card and he will not be on it.

After handling regulation of the Bellator 187 event in Dublin, Mazzulli is now in Israel to oversee the promotion's Bellator 188 event on Thursday before returning to the United States, where he intends to consult with his attorneys. about potential further action he might be able to take.

Sunday marks a full year since McGregor has appeared in the Octagon, dating back to his knockout victory over Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 to capture the 155-pound title. The incident comes just weeks after the same referee ejected him from a UFC Fight Night card in Poland for pacing around the cage and encouraging a teammate despite not being a licensed cornerman. McGregor was escorted away, but returned moments later.

This morning, McGregor posted a message to his Twitter about Goddard but quickly deleted it. I don't care if you're a kid that has his first pro debut or if you're Conor McGregor, you follow policy and you follow it to the tee. This is when McGregor "lost it" and pushed Goddard and shouted at him in the cage and even slapped a Bellator staff member.

On Golden Boy Radio, the 44-year-old De La Hoya says he wants to fight McGregor.
