After Invading Octagon at MMA Event, Conor McGregor Clashes With Referee

After Invading Octagon at MMA Event, Conor McGregor Clashes With Referee

McGregor rushed the cage at Bellator 187 in Dublin on Friday after SBG Ireland teammate Charlie Ward scored a knockout over Paul Redmond 4:59 into the opening stanza of their bout.

The Bellator 187 event took place Friday evening in Dublin and is scheduled to air on tape delay in the US on Spike TV.

The stoppage had barely been signalled when McGregor leaped over the cage, sprinted over to his good friend and jumped on him in a manner that appeared to take even Ward by surprise initially.

BAMMA 32 is now underway at the 3 Arena and Conor McGregor was in attendance to support some of his SBG teammates.

For the second time in less than a month, Conor McGregor and referee Marc Goddard had issues with each other during an worldwide fight card.




McGregor eventually left the cage as the chaos simmered down, but immediately after leaving through the cage door, he went for a run around the cage and pumped up the crowd.

"What's got into you mate?" McGregor continued yelling and kept trying to get at Goddard.

The incident was made significantly worse however, when referee Marc Goddard tried to rightly stop McGregor from celebrating with his teammate.

The UFC has never co-promoted with anybody before but there's also never been anyone like McGregor, who has become the biggest draw in all of combat sports over the past few years.

UFC president Dana White has released fighters in the past for shoving an official.
