Conor McGregor causes wild scene at Bellator 187

The unsavoury incident occurred after the UFC lightweight champion burst into the octagon at the Bellator 187 event at the 3Arena on Friday.

As McGregor was not permitted to step into the ring since he was not a licensed corner man for Ward, several fight officials stepped in to interrupt the celebration. Goddard is one of the most respect officials in MMA. However, videos of McGregor crashing the cage after the Ward fight quickly hit social media. McGregor's actions have earned him some much-deserved criticism. Last month, Goddard gave McGregor a formal warning when Bellator was in Poland.

The 29-year-old pushed the official, who stumbled backwards, before security intervened.

In addition to Friday's encounter with Goddard in the cage, McGregor also struck a member of the athletic commission who was attempting to prevent McGregor from entering the cage a second time.

"Conor was basically acting like a fourth cornerman". He then walked around the outside of the cage while waving to fans. When Fili took down Artem, Conor was right there.

Marc Raimondi of MMAFighting.com shared the full statement.

After being restrained, McGregor was escorted out of the cage while continuing to hurl abuse in the direction of the referee. "I'm going to cut him". He's out cold, they all knew he was out cold and he's still trying to call it.

The "Notorious" can be heard shouting "I'm sick of you". In it, he says "McGregor's conduct jeopardized the health and safety" of fighters who were in the cage during the Ireland event.
