GETTY Conor Mc Gregor will no longer fight at UFC 219 according to Mike Mazzulli

Conor McGregor

De La Hoya reckons that even as his advanced age of 44 years old he could beat McGregor in a boxing match.

"You know I'm competitive", De La Hoya said on Golden Boy Radio with Tattoo and the Crew. I'm faster than ever and stronger than ever. "For me, I think the promotion should have Conor and his guests in a better position", explained Ryan to MMA Fighting.

Following McGregor from his transition as a largely unknown fighter to the status he now enjoys, the film includes highlights from throughout his career including winning the UFC championship belt in just 13 seconds and his shock loss to rival Nate Diaz, culminating in his recent foray into the world of boxing and his record-breaking Las Vegas bout against Floyd Mayweather.

"I had some executives from UFC contact me within two hours after what occurred and they basically said to me that it's completely unacceptable in their eyes and that they will be doing something", Mazzulli told The MMA Hour. That's all I'm going to say.

De La Hoya may just be taking off the cuff with no serious intent to actually come back for a big fight.


But De La Hoya is wary of the threat posed by the Crumlin-born mixed martial arts fighter, adding: "Let's get it straight - in the cage, he would freaking destroy me". He would freaking destroy me.

"I've been working out for the last five months".

The Dublin native who fairly held his own against the undefeated Mayweather could soon be heading for another massive payday if the legend that is Oscar De la Hoya has his way. "Only in the ring", De La Hoya said. "You know I still have it in me".

With all the controversy, candour and steely-eyed self-belief we've come to expect, Conor McGregor: Notorious offers an unprecedented glimpse into the public and private life of a man considered a hero by fans across the globe.

Footage also emerged of McGregor striking a Bellator employee who was simply doing his job in attempting to prevent the Irish fighter, who was not a designated cornerman that night, from entering the cage.
