McGregor's manager, Paradigm Management's Audie Attar, was quizzed about the matter by MMA Fighting's Marc Raimondi and insisted Mazzulli's allegation that the Irishman has been yanked from the UFC 219 card was 'not true'.
The 44-year-old last fought in December, 2006, when he was knocked out by Manny Pacquiao in eight rounds. I'm faster than ever and stronger than ever.
"After the event, I had some executives from UFC contact me within two hours after what occurred. I'll come back for that fight", he said.
"Just one more. I'm calling him out". The first thing I wanted to do was inspect him and get Mr McGregor and his crew out of the cage so that's what we did. "Two rounds, that's all I need", he said.

A match between De La Hoya and McGregor seems plausible.
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 Las Vegas megafight on August 26 between the unbeaten Mayweather and boxing novice McGregor broke box office records and captured the world's attention. In a bout that nearly surely would draw considerably less?
