This could not have been easy for Conor McGregor . His trash-talking is renowned, the chaos and drama he brings to events is worth the Pay Per View fee But to come out and apologise from the bottom of his heart for all the slating and ridiculing and starting fights he does deserves serious praise.

When referee Marc Goddard tried to separate 'The Notorious' from Ward, McGregor went after the official, chasing down and shoving Goddard as he tried to check on Redmond.

McGregor needed to be pulled out of the cage by others, all the while engaging Goddard and other Bellator officials in a heated exchange of words. He then did a lap around the outside of the cage and attempted to jump the cage fence before being escorted out of the arena by officials. 

After copping criticism from MMA officials, fighters and fans for his aggressive reaction, McGregor finally apologised for his actions. 

"I sincerely apologize for my behavior at last weekends fight event in Dublin [sic]," McGregor said on Instagram.

"While trying to support a loyal teammate and friend, I let my emotions get the best of me and acted out of line. As a multiple weight UFC champion, executive producer, role model and public figure, I must hold myself to a higher standard.

UFC fighter Conor McGregor suggested he's learned a lesson from hospitalizing two people. The fighter was charged with three counts of misdemeanor assault and one could of felony criminal mischief after violently crashing the UFC 223 media day.

"The referee Marc Godard was making a horrendous decision in trying to pick an unconscious fighter up off the floor and force the fight to continue into the second round. Even against the wishes of the said fighters coach. The fight was over.

"After witnessing my fighter in a fight where the worst happened and the opponent passed away from his injuries on the night, I thought the worst was about to happen again, and I lost it and over reacted. I am sorry to everyone."

Goddard too explained his side of events following the incident, and blamed McGregor for the "confusion".

"You will clearly see from the video replay that I only step across and do not wave the fight off. Charlie Ward, understandably so had reeled off in celebration thinking that I had indeed ended the contest and not as I had actually done, called time on what I believed to be the end of the round. Two distinctly different endings," Goddard said on Facebook.

McGregor took exception that, but on Tuesday, McGregor took to Instagram to offer his sincere apology and tell his side of the incident. The referee Marc Gonard was making a horrendous decision in trying to pick an unconscious fighter up off the floor and force the fight to continue into the

"My intention again as you will clearly see from the video is to approach Charlie to let him know that the fight was not at that point officially over, that he should return to his corner and wait for my assessment and call. 

“I was talking only to Charlie Ward at this point and you will see me put my arms between him and Conor McGregor, trying to separate and restore order to notify him to go back to his corner and continue the rest period, I was trying to communicate with Charlie Ward and then trying to tell Conor to leave, it wasn’t done yet,” 

“This is when Conor McGregor began firstly his verbal assault in my direction. My only thought at this point was to notify Charlie Ward, and his corner team, of my decision at the time and restore order to the fighting area. Also the condition of Redmond and then subsequently bringing in the [doctor] in the rest period to make a determination.

"Of course the ensuing mêlée and confusion had completely prevented that from happening, that is the result of the actions of one man.”

McGregor's apology comes after his agent Audie Attar denied reports by The MMA Hour that as a result of the incident at Bellator 187 McGregor was pulled from UFC 219, according to President of the Association of Boxing Commissions, Mike Mazzulli. The Irishman was never officially scheduled to fight at the event.

  I'd take McGregor in two says De La Hoya Retired boxing world champion Oscar De La Hoya has said he would be ready to step back in the ring to face mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor. The 44-year-old fighter turned promoter, who has not fought since being battered to defeat by Manny Pacquiao in 2008, said he has been "secretly training" and is confident he could beat UFC champion McGregor."You know I'm competitive," De La Hoya said on 'Golden Boy Radio with Tattoo and the Crew', a daily digital radio show."I still have it in me. I've been secretly training. I'm faster than ever and stronger than ever. I know I can take out Conor McGregor in two rounds.

The argument made more than any other was that if the two fighters got into the Octagon, McGregor 's preferred venue for ass kicking, the results would And they're almost certainly right. McGregor is an MMA fighter . Mayweather is a boxer. And a UFC fight between these two would likely be over before

At his final pre- fight workout, Mayweather was visited by Paulie Malignaggi, the former world champion boxer and one of the commentators covering the event. Don’t you worry. Paulie, thank you for going over there like I asked you to do. And he made it look good when he grabbed you and threw you down.
