Commission Head Claims Conor McGregor Has Been Pulled From UFC 219

It sounds like Conor McGregor's Bellator incident will be costing the UFC, Tony Ferguson, and himself a lucrative Christmas.

But according to the card's regulatory head Mike Mazzulli, who serves as the director of the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation and the president of Association of Boxing Commission, UFC has handed out the first punishment to McGregor (21-3) behind the scenes.

"I had some executives from the UFC contact me within 2 hours of what occurred". The referee was trying to tell him that the fight was over.

On Friday, the UFC lightweight champion brought a lot of eyes on the Bellator 187 event that took place in Dublin, Ireland.

Mazzulli said that "Mr McGregor is not bigger than MMA", saying that fighter safety is the most important thing.

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.

There was a rematch being slated for the fall with Pacquiao, but it was pushed back because of conflicts with Pacquiao's work schedule as a senator back home in the Philippines.

The 44-year-old Golden Boy, who last fought in 2008, stated "I'm faster than ever and stronger than ever. That's when I lost it. F*** yous all". "You follow policy and you follow it to the T. If you don't, you're at fault and you have the right to be sanctioned". 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.
