[Video] Watch Conor McGregor Lose Control And Start On Referee Marc Goddard At Bellator 187
There were crazy scenes in Dublin, Ireland this evening as Conor McGregor stormed the cage at Bellator 187 and got into a fracas with referee, Marc Goddard.
McGregor climbed the cage to celebrate with his friend Charlie Ward who had just beaten John Redmond with seconds remaining in the first round. Goddard appeared to try get McGregor out of the cage and restore order, but the Irishman responded angrily and pushed Goddard in the chest as he attended to Redmond who was still on the mat.
Bellator security then stormed the cage attempting to restore order, but McGregor continued to remonstrate and even returned to the cage a second time after being removed.
OMG! Conor McGregor jumps in the cage at Bellator 187 and star…

Alternative angles to incident also show McGregor lashing out at a member of the commission with a slap.
Conor McGregor also slapped a commissioner tonight as he was told to get down from the cage. Not good.
