Two-weight UFC champion Conor McGregor sparked controversy final night time when he was concerned in an indignant altercation with a referee at an MMA occasion in Dublin.
McGregor was in attendance on the Bellator 187 occasion within the capital to observe his team-mate Charlie Ward tackle John Redmond.
And moments after Ward had produced a first-round knockout to beat Redmond, McGregor leapt into the octagon to rejoice with him.
Referee Mark Goddard took exception to McGregor’s actions and ordered him out of the octagon, sparking a melee by pushing him away.
That angered McGregor and the Dubliner retaliated, operating after Goddard and shouting and pointing at him earlier than he was escorted out of the octagon.
McGregor, who was overwhelmed by Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match in August, has not fought within the UFC since stopping Eddie Alvarez to seize the 155lb crown in November final yr.
