Conor McGregor finally issues apology over Bellator Dublin antics

Conor Mc Gregor GSP

Retired boxing world champion Oscar De La Hoya has said he would be ready to step back in the ring to face mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor.

Conor McGregor has issued an apology for his behavior at Bellator 187 at the 3Arena last Friday.

McGregor, who had been a spectator in Dublin, leapt into the octagon to celebrate with Ward moments after he won with a first-round knockout to beat Redmond. Two rounds - just one more (fight).

Referee Mark Goddard tried to separate McGregor only to spark a melee by pushing him away.

"Bloke KO'd on the floor bout a minute straight and ref trying to say fights not over Conor", McGregor said in a now-deleted tweet explaining what happened. The fight was over. I am sorry to everyone.

Conor McGregor would like to apologize.to absolutely nearly everybody. As a multiple weight champion, executive producer, role model and public figure, I must hold myself to a higher standard. "Again, I go back to the safety of the fighter".

"I do not wish for any further action to be taken against any party, in particular Conor McGregor, but ultimately that is entirely out of my hands".

Conor McGregor may be the face of the UFC, but he's still going to have to face some consequences for his freakish outburst at a recent Bellator event.

Mike Mazzulli, president of the Association of Boxing Commissions and Combative Sports, suggested that the possible bout with Tony Ferguson at UFC 219 has now been cancelled.

The U.S. -based Mohegan Tribe Department of Regulation oversaw the event and released a statement categorizing McGregor's actions as an "assault" on Goddard.

"I sincerely apologize for my behavior at last weekends fight event in Dublin", McGregor wrote on Instagram. The latter was a guest on "The MMA Hour" on Monday, and Mazzulli reportedly said that the UFC's informed him that McGregor will not fight on December 30th, because of the incident. He's not gonna be making any more money this year and I commend UFC for that.
