'So I do commend the UFC to some extent for doing that.

His incursion came at the end of the round and McGregor believed the fight to be over - even though referee Marc Goddard was yet to officially indicate that it was. Recently Mazzulli confirmed that they have informed members of the Association of Boxing Commissioners and the UFC, about McGregor's actions.

Ward took the fight, part of the Bellator 187 event, with a huge left-hander in the first round prompting the watching McGregor to gatecrash the celebrations.

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

The U.S. -based Mohegan Tribe Department of Regulation, which oversaw the event, characterized McGregor's actions as an "assault" on Goddard, and said he "jeopardized the health and safety of the bout participants".

Mazzulli contacted top officials in the UFC following the flashpoints and has claimed that McGregor has been pulled from the December 30 event as a result.

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.

On the bond between McGregor and Ward: "Charlie is one of Conor's very close friends and he's coming off two pretty devastating losses". Redmond was knocked over during the subsequent melee caused by McGregor, which Mazzulli felt left him unsafe. "That's when I lost it. F*** yous all".

McGregor then followed Goddard and pushed him in the back, which prompted other officials to hold McGregor back. It's like soccer players when they score goals and you see them running around and then some will go like this.

Right after he beat Pacquiao, Horn called for a fight with Mayweather and he's called for that fight several times in the last few months.
