  • Conor Mc Gregor GSP

De La Hoya, who is almost a decade into retirement, said on Monday that he has been "secretly training" and called out UFC star Conor McGregor.

McGregor was attending the Bellator 187 event on Friday night to watch his team-mate Charlie Ward take on John Redmond.

Referee Marc Goddard separated the celebrating pair and was then pushed by McGregor as he tended to Redmond.

De La Hoya believes he could defeat Conor McGregor in just two rounds. He did not directly apologize to referee Marc Goddard, whom he said failed to properly officiate the bout.

De La Hoya said if somehow a fight with McGregor could be made, it would be as a boxing match. The fight was over. I'll come back for that fight. I am sorry to everyone.

After copping criticism from MMA officials, fighters and fans for his aggressive reaction, McGregor finally apologised for his actions. As a multiple weight champion, executive producer, role model and public figure, I must hold myself to a higher standard. "I don t know what it is, but I ll tell you now that I ve never felt so good before in my life". I've always learned from my mistakes and this will be no different.

IEA oil demand forecast scaled back
Global demand is forecast to be 30 percent higher by 2040, but still half as much as it would be without efficiency improvements. But the oil market isn't tightening as quickly as once anticipated, the IEA said in its monthly oil-market report.


In a deleted tweet, McGregor wrote: "Bloke KO'd on floor bout a minute straight and ref trying to say fight's not over, Conor". The MTDR has not, however, formally punished McGregor.

"I sincerely apologize for my behavior at last weekends fight event in Dublin", McGregor said. adding he let his emotions get the best of him after watching his training partner Charlie Ward win the fight. That's when I lost it, .

'They basically said to me that it's completely unacceptable in their eyes and that they will be doing something, ' he explained. Mayweather came out of retirement for the first time in two years to fight McGregor.

There was initial confusion over whether the fight was actually stopped and McGregor was heard on video screaming "that's a f--ing stoppage" at Goddard.

The event takes place in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on December 30 and McGregor was reportedly set to defend his lightweight belt against interim champions Tony Ferguson. I'm just making sure it ain't me. Hard to say. One would think that some sort of disciplinary action is coming McGregor's way.
