Conor McGregor's slated December return apparently nixed due to Bellator incident

Conor Mc Gregor next fight

GETTY Conor McGregor UFC lightweight champion

According to the director of the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation (MTDAR), the commission which oversaw Bellator 187 at the 3Arena in Dublin on Friday night, Conor McGregor has been pulled from UFC 219 on December 30th as a result of his actions at the event.

Veteran referee Marc Goddard attempted to remove McGregor, which prompted McGregor to shove him in the back.

"They did inform me that he was set to be on the December 30th card and he will not be on it", Mazzulli added.

The MMA fighter was a guest at Bellator 187 in Dublin, Ireland, where he was supporting fellow Irish fighter Charlie Ward.

Neither the UFC or McGregor have released an official statement on the incident.

Regardless of what the UFC allegedly told Mazzulli and what else the promotion might do to reprimand McGregor, who could be in violation of the company's Athlete Code of Conduct, the ABC president isn't letting the matter simply fade away.
