Oscar De La Hoya training for comeback fight with Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor

White has yet to comment on McGregor's behaviour last weekend in Dublin but, knowing how much he likes to talk, we don't imagine he will be able to keep quiet for long.

There was one notable absentee in Conor McGregor's apology for his actions at Bellator Dublin.

"I have known, witnessed and refereed Conor on many previous occasions over the years and watched, even in support of his meteoric rise, speaking publically to commend him and offer an insight when others had turned against him".

"So to all of you out there who wrongly assumed that I approach Charlie to eject Conor then you are sadly mistaken and plain wrong", Goddard writes, "the only reason I approach is to tell Charlie to Go back to his corner as the fight was not over".

As you've surely heard, and or seen by now, McGregor has been in hot water, after he flipped out on officials at the Dublin card. He entered the Hall of Fame in 2014 with a career record of 39-6 with 30 knockouts. He retired shortly afterward, having lost three of his last five fights.

Earlier this year we were treated to an entertaining showdown between boxing great Floyd Mayweather and UFC legend Conor McGregor which got everyone talking.

Oscar De La Hoya, a 10-time world title victor and former pay-per-view giant, has teased the idea of a possible return to the boxing ring. He called it a "circus" and a "farce" and claimed that if it happened, "Our sport might not ever recover".

McGregor remains under contract to UFC.

De La Hoya said he would only consider fighting McGregor under boxing rather than MMA rules.

The Golden Boy wants a piece of The Notorious. "The itch is there, has been for a long time". That would be tough to match, but if there's a healthy paycheck involved for both fighters, you can never say never.

McGregor (21-3) has not fought in mixed martial arts in 2017.

When McGregor initially left the cage, he turned around and ran back into the enclosure shouting "that was a f***ing stoppage" before he was again asked to leave. He would freaking destroy me.

In every case, De La Hoya has elected to stay in retirement - a wise decision. His work has been featured on a number of publications, including Sherdog.com, MiddleEasy.com, ESPN.com, the abandoned WCL.com as well as his own site, ULTMMA.com (R.I.P). (My confidence) is how I feel now from my training.

"You know I'm competitive", he said.

De La Hoya has battled drug and alcohol addiction, has been to rehabilitation multiple times and now faces charges stemming from a DUI arrest earlier in the year.
