McGregor shoves referee Goddard in Dunblin

And that's when things escalated.

His victory prompted McGregor to leap into the Octagon to celebrate with Ward at the 3Arena.

The UFC superstar was at Bellator 187 in Dublin watched training partner Charlie Ward fight when all hell broke loose.

It is not immediately known what disciplinary action, if any, will come from this considering that McGregor wasn't a licensed cornerman and put his hands on a referee.

McGregor and Goddard have been at odds before. He eventually got to Goddard and continued to point his finger at him and Goddard slightly pushed him again.

Three weeks after referee Marc Goddard objected an obnoxious McGregor from his cageside perch in Gdansk, Poland, while cheering on teammate Artem Lobov at a UFC Fight Night card, "The Notorious" attempted a return confrontation.

McGregor then appears to push the referee while launching into a rant against him as he is restrained.

Another video has surfaced on Twitter showing McGregor continuing his bad behaviour after the earlier incident.

McGregor should not have been in the cage under any circumstances considering he was not an official member of Ward's corner. The UFC is now in negotiations regarding McGregor's potential return to the UFC in December, according to recent comments by president Dana White.
