After exiting the cage, McGregor decided he was not finished with his thoughts regarding the situation (Warning: NSFW language). McGregor's celebration quickly turned to ire as he targeted Goddard.

McGregor got into a heated row with referee Goddard after he jumped into the arena to celebrate a victory by his team-mate Charlie Ward over John Redmond.

Conor McGregor was a spectator for Bellator 187 in Dublin Friday night, but the UFC champion managed to become a huge part of the show after watching his partner knock out an opponent. Ward and McGregor were eventually separated, but the UFC lightweight did not appreciate Goddard telling him to leave the cage. McGregor continued yelling and kept trying to get at Goddard.

After being escorted out of the cage, McGregor promptly returned to the vicinity of the area as he acknowledge the crowd. After getting into Goddard's face, McGregor was led from the cage by friend Artem Lobov.

Roy Moore vehemently denies sexual misconduct
The state Republican Party has the power to disqualify Moore from the election, according to the Alabama secretary of state. Defiant as ever, Moore himself issued a fundraising appeal asking for emergency donations in a "spiritual battle".


The Bellator 187 event took place Friday evening in Dublin and is scheduled to air on tape delay in the US on Spike TV.

UFC officials had yet to comment on McGregor's actions at the time of publication.

Given that McGregor has acted dramatically out of turn and given massive publicity to a competitor, UFC president Dana White's response is well worth looking out for. He made his massively hyped professional boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather in August.
