Conor McGregor Goes Berserk And Starts On Referee

Conor McGregor

McGregor's invasion caused a heated confrontation with referee Marc Goddard.

McGregor, 29, was captured on video leaping over the Bellator cage, after Ward (9-3) successfully defeated John Redmond on the Bellator prelims.

The UFC superstar was at Bellator 187 in Dublin watched training partner Charlie Ward fight when all hell broke loose.

At the end of the first round, after Ward dropped Redmond with a left hook, McGregor scaled the cage to celebrate with Ward who had seemingly vanquished his foe.

What started as a middle-of-the-road Bellator fight card that was to air on Spike TV on a tape delay due to the time difference between the United States and Ireland took an interesting turn on Friday.

McGregor and Goddard have previous history.

I can't wait until he conveniently forgets about that quote when he's asked about McGregor's latest incident. McGregor then tried to go follow Ward and Goddard went on to say something and proceeded to put his right hand on McGregor and lightly pushed the UFC lightweight champion. "Act professional", Goddard could be heard telling McGregor. Goddard is the same official who ordered McGregor to leave cageside as he cheered Artem Lobov on at UFC Gdansk.

Over the past few weeks, McGregor has said that he's happy to return to the UFC for whatever fight they offer him after he's given co-promoter status as well seeking some sort of equity such as partial ownership in the company.
