"You know I'm competitive", De La Hoya said Monday, according to ESPN's Dan Rafael. "That's why I said when you are a professional at that level, you have to handle yourself as a professional". I've been secretly training, bro, secretly training. I'm faster than ever and stronger than ever.

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

"I sincerely apologise for my behaviour at last weekends fight event in Dublin". However it was so close to the end of the round, that it wasn't clear whether the fight was over or whether it was just the end of the round and the referee stepped in separate the fighters and direct them to their corners.

In a lengthy statement of his own, Goddard, a veteran referee with experience in the UFC and Bellator, confirmed he hadn't called off the fight right away, and McGregor's presence in the cage delayed him doing so.

"I sincerely apologize to the Director of the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation, Mike Mazzulli, all the officials and staff working the event, [coach] Andy Ryan and his fighter John - two stonch [sic] ones that put up a great fight every time", McGregor wrote. "That s all I m going to say". Hey, let's get it straight: in the cage, he would freakin' destroy me.

Apparently, McGregor's behavior also got him removed from December 30's UFC 219 fight card, according to Association of Boxing Commissions President and Combative Sports Director of the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation Mike Mazzulli (h/t Ariel Helwani's MMA Hour).

McGregor has yet to respond to the challenge from De La Hoya or announce any future plans as a boxer or MMA fighter. But the August pay-per-view event drew huge numbers, so perhaps De La Hoya is looking for a piece of the pie by calling out the 29-year-old.

"He would destroy me". (My confidence) is how I feel now from my training.

De La Hoya said if somehow a fight with McGregor could be made, it would be as a boxing match.

De La Hoya publicly considered a comeback in June 2015, only to change his tune one week later.

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's not gonna be making any more money this year and I commend the UFC for that".
