Conor McGregor 'might never fight again' in the octagon

McGregor has since fought Floyd Mayweather in the boxing ring - losing to a 10th-round stoppage, but making a huge amount of money in the process.

According to Mike Mazzulli, head of the Association of Boxing Commissions [ABC], who was in attendance on the night, the UFC chose to punish McGregor for the incident and remove him from the plans for UFC 219, which will now be headlined by the bout between Cris Cyborg and Holly Holm.

"The UFC has to make him humble a little bit because other guys say, 'Oh, Conor do this?"

The 29-year-old from Crumlin has not fought in the UFC since beating Eddie Alvarez in November 2016.

There's still no confirmation as to whether or not Conor McGregor really did get himself into a bar fight with members of the Kinahan drug cartel in Ireland on Sunday night, but that hasn't stopped a ton of European tabloids from running the story (without his name, to avoid potential libel lawsuits if it's all bogus).

But, it has now been confirmed McGregor will not fight at UFC 219 and White seemed unsure of the Irishman's future when asked about his comeback. I've got guys who made less than that who are lawyers and went to school their whole lives and quit working. "I think everyone is waiting for that". Previously, White's said he would even entertain the idea of an ownership stake for McGregor. And I think in the next 24-48 hours, I believe that An Garda Síochána will be approaching Conor McGregor and saying to him, 'By the way, we just want to officially inform you that potentially your safety is at risk'.

"He's got a new nutritionist and is having way less problems with his weight now, he is in the 170s now".

"Money changes everything, with a lot of people", he said. "If it's true, we'll get it figured out and we'll go from there". "If it was, it would be bigger news", White said.

White added: "He's a young, rich kid who is a god in Ireland", White said. "When you make that kind of money, you're that famous and you're a professional athlete, you're gonna have an overload of cling-ons".

Tony Ferguson won the interim title at UFC 216 by scoring a submission win over Kevin Lee with a triangle choke in the third round. "Right now, with him it's not about defend or vacate".

UFC President Dana White has already confirmed that Ferguson would be McGregor's next opponent. White said. "We ain't taking direction from Tony Ferguson".
