Oscar says he would fight McGregor

Conor McGregor

Ward took the fight, part of the Bellator 187 event, with a huge left-hander in the first round prompting the watching McGregor to gatecrash the celebrations.

Three days after McGregor leaped the cage in support of teammate Charlie Ward's victory, only to slap a Bellator official and twice shove referee Marc Goddard, Mazzulli told MMAfighting.com on Monday that UFC has pulled him from a return date at UFC 219 on December 30 in Las Vegas that had yet to be announced.

However, McGregor got into a bit of a spat with referee Marc Goddard, who warned McGregor for coaching Artem Lobov at the recent UFC event in Poland. He ran into the octagon and confronted referee Goddard, and later, when he was refused entry to the octagon, McGregor slapped a Bellator official.

However, Mazzulli has now told ultra-reliable MMA journalist Ariel Helwani that the UFC will be pulling McGregor from their event on December 30 - UFC 219 - as a result of his actions. And they basically said to me that it's completely unacceptable in their eyes, and that they will be doing something. Recently Mazzulli confirmed that they have informed members of the Association of Boxing Commissioners and the UFC, about McGregor's actions. He was seen screaming at Goddard before finally exiting the ring. I know I can take out Conor McGregor in two rounds.

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". It's like soccer players when they score goals and you see them running around and then some will go like this. So, when you're seeing someone that you're that close with, with two bad defeats and then has a great victory in front of his hometown crowd...he got a bit emotional, jumped in and he didn't realize that the fight had no actually been called. "You have the right to be sanctioned".
