Conor McGregor storms cage, shoves referee after teammate wins fight

"We're are aware of the in-cage altercation involving Conor McGregor and a Bellator staff member", the statement read.

The two-weight world UFC champion was in attendance at Bellator 187 in Dublin on Friday night to watch his team-mate Charlie Ward fight.

The pair came face-to-face again and McGregor had a few choice words for the official.

McGregor took exception with Goddard telling him to leave and touching his chest, then shouted back at Goddard and eventually shoved the referee.

McGregor wasn't a licensed cornerman for the fight so referee Marc Goddard, along with security, approached him, separated him from Ward and put his hands on McGregor's chest in an effort to move him out of the cage.

McGregor was grappled by security but ultimately left the cage on his own, returning once more to yell "that was a f-king stoppage" before being ejected from the match by Goddard.

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

For the second time in less than a month, Conor McGregor and referee Marc Goddard had issues with each other during an worldwide fight card. As a commissioner pushed McGregor, the UFC lightweight champion threw a slap in response.

After Goddard tried to remove The Notorious from the cage, the Dubliner chased the official across the mat despite the attempts to hold him back.
