UFC light-weight champion Conor McGregor made fairly the scene at as we speak’s Bellator 187 occasion in his native Dublin.
Several of McGregor’s (21-Three MMA, 9-1 UFC) SBG Ireland teammates compete on as we speak’s card at 3Arena (it airs by way of same-day delay tonight on Spike), and after Charlie Ward (Four-Three MMA, 1-Zero BMMA) scored a knockout victory over John Redmond (7-13 MMA, Zero-1 BMMA), “The Notorious” to leap within the cage to rejoice.
McGregor wasn’t a licensed cornerman for the occasion. That grew to become apparent when safety swarmed the UFC’s former 145-pound and present 155-pound titleholder. What occurred after that was even stranger, although. A extremely emotional McGregor charged within the route of referee Marc Goddard, who tried to interrupt up the champ’ embrace with Ward. McGregor’s celebration shortly turned to ire as he focused Goddard.
McGregor was restrained. He screamed and pointed in Goddard’s route whereas chaos surrounded him contained in the cage. Watch it beneath (by way of Facebook):
The current historical past between McGregor and Goddard might have performed a component in as we speak’s melee. McGregor attended UFC Fight Night 118 in Gdansk, Poland, this previous month and tried to function an additional cornerman in Artem Lobov’s loss to Andre Fili. Goddard was the referee for the battle, and at one level he needed to cease the motion to order McGregor to return to his seat.
