Conor McGregor returned to the Octagon last night and, unsurprisingly, made all the headlines.

The UFC champion turned boxer turned up in Gdansk to support his teammate Artem Lobov.

Lobov was taking on Andre Fili on the preliminary card and 'The Notorious' received a loud cheer when he was introduced to the crowd.

The fight was entertaining with it going the distance before the judges scored it 30-27 in favour of Fili.

But it was McGregor that stole the show.

He was encouraging Lobov from the crowd during the fight but he might have taken his support a bit too far.

So much so that referee Marc Goddard had to stop the fight to warn McGregor.

The Irishman acknowledged he was in the wrong and backed off saying: “My bad, my bad.”

Take a look:

While McGregor got a warning for what he said during the fight, he might be in even bigger trouble for the words he said before.

According to the Mirror, “a video was uploaded on social media showing McGregor refer to Fili as a "f*****" before being swiftly deleted.”

He has not commented on the incident, nor have the UFC.

McGregor will soon be stepping inside the Octagon once again, though, and it looks as though he will defend his lightweight title against Tony Ferguson.

UFC chief Dana White has insisted that the Ferguson fight ”has to happen next" with a meeting possible before the end of the year.

"Tony's the interim champion, Conor's the champion, that's the fight that makes sense. It's the fight that has to happen.”
