McGregor shoves referee Goddard in Dunblin

McGregor was knocked out by Floyd Mayweather during his pro boxing debut in August.

After Charlie Ward finished off his opponent, John Redmond, with a left hook at 3Arena during Friday night's "Bellator 187" in Dublin, McGregor scaled the cage fence to join in on the celebration with one of his training partners.

McGregor was not a licensed cornerman, but even if he was, you are only permitted to enter the cage at the referee's discretion. According to MMAFighting, Goddard and McGregor have a history together - he had ordered McGregor to leave cageside last time Artem Lobov fought in the UFC.

Later on after his incident with Goddard, McGregor was then seen appearing to slap Bellator staff member Mike Johnson, who tried to stop him re-entering the cage. Walking around the cage side wherever and whenever he wanted. He became enraged and went after Goddard and was promptly ejected from the Bellator 187 event in Dublin, Ireland.

When it comes to Conor McGregor, expect the unexpected.

"Viacom and Bellator hold the safety and well-being of our staff in the highest regard and we're now reviewing the situation". Presumably, they will be encouraging those entities to take action against the SBG fighter.

Three years ago, Jason High was cut completely from the UFC for pushing referee Kevin Mulhall following his TKO loss against Rafael dos Anjos in New Mexico.

"I was trying to say, "keep going". You don't ever, ever (expletive) touch a referee, ever.

Goddard attempted to separate McGregor and Ward, and McGregor was irate.
