There's More: Conor McGregor Slaps Security Guard At Bellator 187

Saturday, 11 Nov, 2017

Even more, he brought attention to Bellator MMA, UFC's chief rival.

After exiting the cage, McGregor decided he was not finished with his thoughts regarding the situation (Warning: NSFW language).

Ward's victory over John Redmond was overshadowed when McGregor jumped the cage fence to celebrate.

"The Notorious" one had three security people around him to stop him from going after Goddard went on to start pointing and screaming at one of the best referees in the sport. McGregor was so vocal and animated during Lobov's fight with Andre Fili that Goddard paused the action in the cage to give McGregor a tongue-lashing.

Last month, Goddard issued McGregor a formal warning during a UFC Fight Night event in Gdansk, Poland.

One problem - Conor wasn't allowed in the cage since he wasn't a licensed cornerman for Goddard and several security staff members stepped in to interrupt their bro moment. However, that fight was completely overshadowed by McGregor, who appeared cageside to shout instructions at his teammate along with fellow SBG man Artem Lobov.

UFC president Dana White has released fighters in the past for shoving an official.

The UFC has never co-promoted with anybody before but there's also never been anyone like McGregor, who has become the biggest draw in all of combat sports over the past few years.

McGregor was knocked out by Floyd Mayweather during his pro boxing debut in August.
