Conor McGregor 'pulled' from UFC 219 following 'unacceptable' behaviour at Bellator

Conor McGregor 'pulled' from UFC 219 following 'unacceptable' behaviour at Bellator

McGregor's manager, Paradigm Management's Audie Attar, was quizzed about the matter by MMA Fighting's Marc Raimondi and insisted Mazzulli's allegation that the Irishman has been yanked from the UFC 219 card was 'not true'.

The 44-year-old was highly critical of Floyd Mayweather's match-up with the UFC superstar but seems to have changed his tune, issuing a call-out on Monday.

"I've been secretly training, secretly training", De La Hoya said recently in an interview on Golden Boy Radio. I'm faster than ever and stronger than ever. I could take out Conor McGregor in two rounds. "I think that's very important to understand that fighter safety is the most important thing in the world because without fighter safety, this sport would not proceed to the next level like it always has". Two rounds. Just one more.

McGregor is no stranger to swapping the cage for the ring, having fought and lost to Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas earlier this year. That's all I'm going to say.

There's no time frame for a return right now, or whether the UFC would be interested in another co-promotion with De La Hoya's "Golden Boy Promotions".

Putin, Erdogan Hold Joint Press Conference After Meeting in Sochi
On his trip to Russia , he revealed that he will discuss with Putin the political solution to the Syria crisis and joint Turkish-Russian action in its Afrin region, which is under the control of the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party.

Oscar De La Hoya, a 10-time world title victor and former pay-per-view giant, has teased the idea of a possible return to the boxing ring.

It's not clear if De La Hoya is being entirely serious.

The Dublin native who fairly held his own against the undefeated Mayweather could soon be heading for another massive payday if the legend that is Oscar De la Hoya has his way. "I don't know what it is, but I'll tell you now that I've never felt so good before in my life".

McGregor surpassed expectations by making it into the tenth round against Mayweather, meaning fight fans would still be willing to pay to watch him box.

In his time as a fighter, De La Hoya claimed ten world titles in six different weight classes before going on to establish himself as a successful promoter of the likes of Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, Miguel Cotto and Jorge Linares. In a bout that nearly surely would draw considerably less?
