Commission rep issues statement on Conor Mc Gregor'assault at Bellator 187

McGregor, the UFC's lightweight champion, caused a ruckus at a Bellator event on Friday in Dublin, when he leaped into the cage after teammate Charlie Ward won via knockout.

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

Veteran referee Marc Goddard attempted to remove McGregor, which prompted McGregor to shove him in the back.

'They did inform me that he was set to be on the December 30 card and he will not be on it.

Conor McGregor posted a short explanation of his recent actions at a Bellator MMA event early Monday morning, before quickly deleting the post.

Oscar De La Hoya was not quiet about his disdain for the much-publicized boxing match between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Conor McGregor this past summer. The incident came just three weeks after another bit of drama concerning McGregor and Goddard, as the latter was the third man in the cage at UFC Fight Night 118 in Gdansk, Poland on October 21, and was forced to reprimand McGregor from loudly cornering teammate Artem Lobov from cageside during his bout with Andre Fili, despite not in Lobov's corner as an official second. "If Mr. McGregor was licensed at Mohegan and he did this at another commission overseas, I would suspend him indefinitely, and I would require for him to come to a hearing and explain himself".

'On the other hand, I will be looking at it and speaking to my attorneys upon returning to the United States to see if I have any action'.

There was a rematch being slated for the fall with Pacquiao, but it was pushed back because of conflicts with Pacquiao's work schedule as a senator back home in the Philippines. "That's when I lost it. F*** yous all". He ran into the octagon and confronted referee Goddard, and later, when he was refused entry to the octagon, McGregor slapped a Bellator official.

The 44-year-old Golden Boy, who last fought in 2008, stated "I'm faster than ever and stronger than ever". I don't care if you are a kid who has your first pro debut or if you are Conor McGregor.
