Bellator Regulator Claims UFC Have Already Punished Conor McGregor For Confronting Referee


UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor has yet to publicly face discipline for his role in setting off a wild melee as a fan at Friday's Bellator 187 card in his native Dublin.

'So I do commend the UFC to some extent for doing that. "So, I do commend the UFC to some extent for doing that", Mazzulli said, later confirming that UFC officials told him McGregor had been scheduled to fight at UFC 219 on December 30, despite public perception being quite different. Recently Mazzulli confirmed that they have informed members of the Association of Boxing Commissioners and the UFC, about McGregor's actions. As Bellator 187 in Dublin, Ireland this past Friday, McGregor's SBG Ireland teammate Charlie Ward appeared to knock out fellow middleweight John Redmond with just one second left in the opening frame. McGregor was escorted away, but returned moments later.

Goddard was forced to stop the fight and order McGregor back to his seat as he wasn't part of Lobov's corner team.

Mazzulli contacted top officials in the UFC following the flashpoints and has claimed that McGregor has been pulled from the December 30 event as a result.

This morning, McGregor posted a message to his Twitter about Goddard but quickly deleted it. "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. That's when I lost it. F-- yous all".

Price has since stepped down in the wake of sexual harassment allegations, but the strategy may be the same regardless. And they're really going for it, already giving the Lord of the Rings series a multi-season production commitment.

McGregor then followed Goddard and pushed him in the back, which prompted other officials to hold McGregor back.

"I've heard rumours that if they're [Pacquiao] going to fight again it's going to be against me and then Manny to retire", Horn told Nine's Sports Sunday panel via BoxingScene.

"I'm a policy guy". I don't care if you are a kid who has your first pro debut or if you are Conor McGregor. "You have the right to be sanctioned".

UFC officials have yet to respond to multiple requests for comment on the situation.
