Conor McGregor Invades Cage After Fight, Argues With Ref, Swats At Official

Conor McGregor Invades Cage After Fight, Argues With Ref, Swats At Official

It's not the first time McGregor has got himself into hot water in a watching brief.

Chaos erupted during Bellator 187 in Dublin Friday night and Conor McGregor was right at the centre of it.

He could later be seen skipping around the cage and jumping back onto the fence briefly before being rebuked by another official, whom McGregor slapped across the face for trying to force him down off of the cage.

This caught Goddard and the rest of the referees by surprised, who immediately ran over to the UFC champion to try and get him out of the cage.

In that case, McGregor quickly complied.

McGregor was so vocal and animated during Lobov's fight with Andre Fili that Goddard paused the action in the cage to give McGregor a tongue-lashing. That's when McGregor snapped and began shouting at Goddard and even shoved him as he went to check on Redmond who was still down on the mat. Walking around the cage side wherever and whenever he wanted.

"We're aware of the in-cage altercation involving Conor McGregor and a Bellator staff member", Bellator spokesman Ryan Grab said in a statement.

McGregor and Goddard do have some previous. It is unclear if "The Notorious" will be penalized for Friday's incident. Goddard then put his hand on McGregor before going over to check on John Redmond.

The organization has taken swift action in the past, however. The promotion may have released Jason High for pushing a referee in 2014 but they are a business, not a regulatory body and they will surely be reluctant to heavily sanction their cash cow.
