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

McGregor had not been confirmed for UFC 219 but it was believed that he was in line to face interim titlist Tony Ferguson on the card.

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

One week ago, UFC president Dana White said he was expecting McGregor to return at either of the promotion's upcoming Las Vegas cards - December 30 and UFC 222 on March 3 - but that no deal had been signed.

This morning, McGregor posted a message to his Twitter about Goddard but quickly deleted it.

According to MMAWeekly.com sources, McGregor had never come to terms or even verbally accepted any bout for UFC 219, although UFC president Dana White had publicly targeted McGregor vs. I know I could take out Conor McGregor in two rounds.

Hariri says he will return to Lebanon soon, leaves doubt about resignation
Hezbollah's leader, Hassan Nasrallah, has made a public address accusing Saudi Arabia of detaining Mr Hariri against his will. Hariri had not been heard from since but met with foreign diplomats, and appeared with Saudi royalty and in Abu Dhabi.

Mazzulli said he is speaking to his attorneys upon returning to the U.S.to figure out what type of discipline he intends to carry out for McGregor's actions. "That's when I lost it. F*** yous all".

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.

In the moments that followed, the UFC lightweight champion shoved the official and aimed a slap at Bellator employee Michael Johnson, who had been trying to push him off the cage after he had scaled it.

"I go back to the safety of the fighter", Mazzulli said.

It's not the first time Goddard and McGregor have gotten into it. "You have the right to be sanctioned".
