Conor McGregor: UFC champion clashes with referee at event in Dublin

Conor McGregor: UFC champion clashes with referee at event in Dublin

The unsavoury incident occurred after the UFC lightweight champion burst into the octagon at the Bellator 187 event at the 3Arena on Friday.

McGregor was not a licensed cornerman, but even if he was, you are only permitted to enter the cage at the referee's discretion. I hold MMA in a deep-rooted place in my life and have considered myself most fortunate to have done so for so long.

In his fight with Mayweather, McGregor did have some success early on in the bout but critics suggest that Mayweather was simply carrying him in the fight at points. McGregor's actions have earned him some much-deserved criticism.

A video obtained by TMZ appears to show McGregor slapping Bellator employee Mike Johnson. The 29-year-old had been shouting instructions at Lobov during his fight against Andre Fili.

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. He then walked around the outside of the cage while waving to fans.

That would, partially, explain McGregor's actions and also why he referred to Goddard as a "rat" outside the 3Arena last night.

McGregor did not stop there and returned to the top of the cage and straight slapped one of the officials on the head.

The two-weight champ raised his hands in the air as the crowd applauded, before he suddenly turned and charged back towards the octagon screaming: "I'm sick of you".

It was a attractive shot.
