Conor McGregor loses the plot at referee Marc Goddard after Bellator 187 fight

Conor McGregor may not have had a UFC fight for almost a year now but that doesn’t mean the Irishman hasn’t been involved in the sport.

Last month, he was warned by a referee whilst watching teammate Artem Lobov v Andre Fili.

McGregor was in the crowd in Dansk and was encouraging Lobov 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.”

While McGregor may not have done too much wrong in that instance, he will be in big trouble for what he did during the Bellator event in Dublin.

His teammate, Charlie Ward, won the fight and you’d think that McGregor would be pleased.

However, after Ward’s stoppage win over John Redmond, McGregor barged into the cage and went straight for referee Goddard - the same referee that told him to be quiet during Lobov’s fight in Poland.

And after making his way into the Octagon, McGregor completely lost the plot.

He clearly tries to attack the ref and can be seen shoving him when he gets close to him. Luckily for Goddard - and for McGregor - he was finally restrained before launching into a rant shouting: “That was a f*cking stoppage.”

A number of different videos captured the moment.

Take a look:


McGregor is planning a return to the UFC 12 months after he stopped Eddie Alvarez.

That return fight is set to be against Tony Ferguson in either December or March.

But after McGregor’s recent behaviour, is there a chance he will receive a ban for his shocking behaviour?
