Conor McGregor jumps into cage and rows with referee

  • McGregor posted this furious tweet about Goddard but quickly deleted it

McGregor pushed referee Marc Goddard and slapped a Bellator employee after invading the cage after he thought that teammate Charlie Ward had scored a knockout win over Redmond.

He basically went full-on WWE.

Mike Mazzulli, president of the Association of Boxing Commissions and Combative Sports and the director of the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation, was cageside on the night. I commend the UFC to some extent for doing that. They did inform me that he was set to be on the December 30 card and he will not be on it.

In a short-lived post on social media, McGregor expressed no regrets, saying, "Bloke KO'd on floor bout a minute straight and ref trying to say fights not over Conor".

McGregor had not been officially announced as a participant at UFC 219, but it was speculated that he would defend the UFC lightweight title against interim titlist Tony Ferguson on the card.

One week ago, UFC president Dana White said he was expecting McGregor to return at either of the promotion's upcoming Las Vegas cards - December 30 and UFC 222 on March 3 - but that no deal had been signed.

People continue to debate and discuss Conor McGregor's actions at Bellator 187 this past Friday, and according to his head coach, the star was "a little bit over emotional" at the event... Yes.

"I may not be done with what I'm doing".

"On the other hand, I will be speaking to my attorneys to see if I have any action".

On the bond between McGregor and Ward: "Charlie is one of Conor's very close friends and he's coming off two pretty devastating losses".

"I'm a policy guy". Now, I don't know what they are going to do. If you don't, you're in fault. "You follow policy and you follow it to the T. If you don't, you're at fault and you have the right to be sanctioned".

It's the second time in a month that McGregor has been involved himself in a fracas with Goddard.

The UFC has not yet commented on the situation.
