By FCF Staff
It remains to be seen if Conor McGregor will face any disciplinary action, following his actions at Bellator 187 on Friday, but the commission that oversaw the card has reported the incident to the UFC and the Association of Boxing Commissioners.
Mike Mazzulli, who is President of the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation (MTDAR) and the Association of Boxing Commissions, recently released the statement below (via MMA Junkie).
“While the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation (MTDAR) was regulating Bellator 187 in Dublin, Ireland, on November 10, 2017, the following events took place during the Ward vs Redmond bout.
“Mr. Conor McGregor who was a spectator at the time, disrupted the event by scaling the cage prior to the conclusion of the bout. Mr. McGregor’s conduct jeopardized the health and safety of the bout participants by delaying necessary medical attention to the fighters that were injured during the round.
“In addition, Mr. McGregor assaulted Referee Mark Goddard and a Bellator staff.
“The MTDAR has been in consultation with the upper management of the UFC regarding Mr. McGregor’s inappropriate and unacceptable behavior.
“The MTDAR has also contacted members of the Association of Boxing Commissioners that have licensed Mr. McGregor in their jurisdictions to inform them of Mr. McGregor’s behavior.”
