McGregor shoves referee Goddard in Dunblin

Georges St-Pierre

UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor has sparked a huge controversy after being involved in an angry altercation with a referee at an MMA event here.

This time, it got physical.

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

McGregor rushed the cage at Bellator 187 in Dublin on Friday after SBG Ireland teammate Charlie Ward scored a knockout over Paul Redmond 4:59 into the opening stanza of their bout.

McGregor was not a licensed cornerman, but even if he was, you are only permitted to enter the cage at the referee's discretion. McGregor was there to support featherweight Artem Lobov and was told by Goddard not to walk around the cage during the fight.

He wasn't as gracious Friday when Goddard appeared to touch his chest while instructing him to leave.

However, at the time, no one truly appreciated the game for what it was - a matchup between two of the best teams in the country. The biggest obstacle for both Miami and Wisconsin, other than the SEC tandem at the top, looks to be Oklahoma.

Since then McGregor has said he will look to return to his usual sport of MMA in the UFC for his next fight, but has left the door open to a future return to the sweet science.

McGregor didn't take kindly to Goddard's direction and shoved him before exiting the cage. Walking around the cage side wherever and whenever he wanted.

"In addition, Mr. McGregor assaulted Referee Mark Goddard and a Bellator staff".

Whenever Conor McGregor makes an appearance these days, it's always memorable.

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

Ward initially reacted with a fighter's instinct - like he had just been taken down - after McGregor had leapt on top of him.
