Conor McGregor Slaps Security, Pushes MMA Ref

Though McGregor's actions are inexcusable, it's not a complete mystery why the UFC lightweight champion might have an issue with Goddard.

Conor McGregor lost to boxing champ Floyd Mayweather at the T-Mobile Arena for the 10th-round TKO.

The UFC champion was caught on multiple cameras storming the Bellator cage on Friday and attacking referee Marc Goddard.

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.

McGregor then furiously charged towards the ref Goddard - who had previously told him to sit down during Artem Lobov's fight at UFC Gdanksk.

In that case, McGregor quickly complied.

McGregor didn't take kindly to Goddard's direction and shoved him before exiting the cage. He then walked around the outside of the cage while waving to fans.

McGregor continued to yell and point at Goddard as he was surrounded by more officials, and eventually the "Notorious" one left the cage on his own.

"Mr. Conor McGregor who was a spectator at the time, disrupted the event by scaling the cage prior to the conclusion of the bout".

"Viacom and Bellator hold the safety and well-being of our staff in the highest regard and we're now reviewing the situation".

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

The organization has taken swift action in the past, however. UFC President Dana White says they are trying to put a fight together for him before the year is over. 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.
