UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor has yet to publicly face discipline for his role in setting off a wild melee as a fan at Friday's Bellator 187 card in his native Dublin.

Mike Mazzulli, president of the Association of Boxing Commissions and Combative Sports and the director of the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation, was cageside on the night.

He added: "I had some executives from the UFC contact me within two hours of what occurred".

'They did inform me that he was set to be on the December 30 card and he will not be on it.

With the event taking place in Dublin, McGregor cheered on Ward from ringside but was not listed as an official cornerman.

An aging Floyd Mayweather got some licks in against Conor McGregor in August, and now his former rival is angling for a shot at the MMA star in the ring, too.

Sunday marks a full year since McGregor has appeared in the Octagon, dating back to his knockout victory over Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 to capture the 155-pound title.

Recovered deleted video leads to new charges
New evidence revealed this week brought new charges in the hazing death of Penn State University student Timothy Piazza. Reports from after Piazza's death showed other instances of fraternity members attempting to cover up the situation.

When Goddard attempted to pull McGregor away, he reacted furiously, pushing the referee and screaming insults.

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. I know I can take out Conor McGregor in two rounds.

"I will be speaking to my attorneys upon returning to the United States and see if I have any action", said Mazzulli. "That's when I lost it. F-- yous all", McGregor wrote via Twitter on Monday morning.

McGregor then followed Goddard and pushed him in the back, which prompted other officials to hold McGregor back.

"I'm a policy guy".

The 44-year-old Golden Boy, who last fought in 2008, stated "I'm faster than ever and stronger than ever. You have the right to be sanctioned".

It's the second time in a month that McGregor has been involved himself in a fracas with Goddard.
