McGregor apologises for shoving official at Bellator 187

Pacquiao battered a labored De La Hoya into submission over eight rounds at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, ending a career spanning 16 years and six weight divisions.

"You know I'm competitive", De La Hoya said, speaking on DashRadio (h/t The Mac Life). I still have it in me.

"I've been secretly training". I'm faster than ever and stronger than ever. However it was so close to the end of the round, that it wasn't clear whether the fight was over or whether it was just the end of the round and the referee stepped in separate the fighters and direct them to their corners.

"I would suspend him indefinitely and i would require him to come to a hearing and defend himself", Mazzulli said. "That s all I m going to say".

As you've surely heard, and or seen by now, McGregor has been in hot water, after he flipped out on officials at the Dublin card.

To be fair, McGregor vs. Mayweather was far more entertaining than most people expected it to be... but there's still some lingering doubt over whether Mayweather was simply allowing McGregor to put on a show.

McGregor is not stranger to headlines, most recently raking in one of the biggest paydays in professional sports history after he agreed to step in the ring with Floyd Mayweather in an official boxing match.

A 1992 Olympic gold medal victor and 10-time professional world champion, De La Hoya captured titles at 130, 135, 140, 147, 154 and 160 pounds.

"They already sanctioned him (by not letting him fight at UFC 219)", Mazzulli said on The MMA Hour. He would freaking destroy me.

"I've been working out for the last five months". (My confidence) is how I feel now from my training.

McGregor hasn't fought in the Octagon since last November, when he took out Eddie Alvarez to become the lightweight champ.

De La Hoya has battled drug and alcohol addiction, has been to rehabilitation multiple times and now faces charges stemming from a DUI arrest earlier in the year. In June 2015, De La Hoya told ESPN he was considering a return to the ring.

There was one notable absentee in Conor McGregor's apology for his actions at Bellator Dublin. I've watched every single fight of his and that's what I do, this is my job. I'm just making sure it ain't me.

Soon after, De La Hoya said he would remain in retirement.
