Association Of Boxing Commissions Ready To Uphold Sanctions Against McGregor For Bellator Fiasco

If you thought UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor was safe from punishment for yesterday’s chaos at a Bellator event in Dublin, you’d be wrong.

That’s because the boss of all bosses, the Association Of Boxing Commissions, which rules over all combat sport’s governing bodies, is ready to punish Conor McGregor for his actions.

Which means a ban sanction or suspension could be forthcoming.

Mike Mazzulli, the president of the Association of Boxing Commissions and Combative Sports (ABC) released the following statement:

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.
