Commission Head Claims Conor McGregor Has Been Pulled From UFC 219

De La Hoya: Conor McGregor Can 'Absolutely' Become a Boxing Champion

In the monied and highly unequal world of the UFC, Dana White's word can not be taken as a byword for consistency. It's over. You don't do it, I don't care how mad you are, how upset you are. 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.

McGregor's SBG teammate Charlie Ward had just stopped John Redmond at the end of the first round of their fight at Bellator 187 when "The Notorious" leapt from his cageside seat, scaled the cage and confronted Goddard for not calling a halt to the bout earlier. He added, "You know I'm competitive".

While McGregor won't meet the same fate as High - he is far too valuable to the UFC - it would be surprising if he does not face some censure.

Mazzulli and the MTDAR released a statement shortly after the incident, which stated that the MTDAR had already been in contact with "upper management of the UFC" and members of the Association of Boxing Commissions with which McGregor is licensed to inform them of his "inappropriate and unacceptable behaviour".

He said, "It'll take probably 10 years before new theories are tried enough times to give them a high chance of success". Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates , speaks at the Bloomberg Global Business Forum in New York City, U.S., September 20.

The 29-year-old is due to fight interim champion, Tony Ferguson, on his return to the octagon.

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. I commend the UFC to some extent for doing that. If he fights six-rounders, eight-rounders, ten-rounders and then fights contenders can he get better?

In the run-up to the Mayweather-McGregor fight, in which the Irishman stepped away from his celebrated MMA career to make his boxing debut, De La Hoya lashed out at the event as a "circus" and a "disaster" for boxing.
