"I helped train a guy to kill someone, and then someone wound up dying". I'm faster than ever and stronger than ever.

UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson has taken aim at Conor McGregor following the suggestion that a mooted clash at UFC 219 could be off due to the Irishman's antics at Bellator 187.

"Just one more. I'm calling him out". Two rounds. That's all I need. That's all I'm going to say.

"While trying to support a loyal teammate and friend, I let my emotions get the best of me and acted out of line", said McGregor, who has not fought in the UFC since stopping Eddie Alvarez to capture the 155lb crown in November a year ago.

An older, rustier boxer like De La Hoya would be a better matchup for McGregor - but fight fans shouldn't put up with this.

'While trying to support a loyal team-mate and friend, I let my emotions get the best of me and acted out of line. McGregor claimed that Goddard tried to "pick up" John Redmond off the floor and 'force the fight to continue'.

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.

The U.S. -based Mohegan Tribe Department of Regulation oversaw the event and released a statement categorizing McGregor's actions as an "assault" on Goddard.

Another person close to De La Hoya told ESPN that De La Hoya is in fact seriously considering a return to the ring, even if it's not to fight McGregor. "Only in the ring", De La Hoya said.

"He would destroy me".

It is not all that surprising that a world championship athlete as special as De La Hoya would find ways to stay in shape in his retirement.

McGregor was stopped in the 10th round when he stepped into the boxing ring for the first time as a professional, with Mayweather's vastly superior technique and staying power ultimately proving too much for the Irishman.

"I've been working out for the last five months". (My confidence) is how I feel now from my training. So I do commend the UFC to some extent for doing that.
