McGregor was set to make his return at UFC 219 on December 30, but the UFC has now pulled him from the event due to his actions at Bellator 187.
Conor McGregor was set to take top the octagon once again, but that all looks to be a pipe dream after the comment from Mike Mazzulli on the MMA hour with Ariel Helwani.
Mike Mazzulli president of the Association of Boxing Commissions and Combative Sports and the director of the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation appeared on Monday’s edition of the MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani and said the UFC told him that they are very unhappy with McGregor and that he was meant to fight on December 30th, but now will not be fighting.
“I had some executives from UFC contact me within two hours after what occurred and they basically said to me that it’s completely unacceptable in their eyes and that they will be doing something.”
“They did inform me that he was set to be on the December 30th card and he will not be on it. So I do commend UFC to some extent for doing that.”
The UFC are yet to formally commented on the situation and there is no timeline for a McGregor return to the octagon.
Stay tuned as we will have all the inside scoop on this as more details become available.
