Conor McGregor Jumps Into Cage At Bellator 187, Confronts Ref

Conor McGregor Jumps Into Cage At Bellator 187, Confronts Ref

The card, which took place at 3Arena and was headlined by featherweights AJ McKee and Brian Moore, will air Friday evening on tape delay in the U.S.

The incident occurred following following victory for McGregor's SBG teammate Charlie Ward over John Redmond.

McGregor then followed Goddard across the cage before giving him a slight shove him in the back, just before officials intervened. But after McGregor jumped into Ward's arms and knocked him over, Goddard, who officiated the match, attempted to eject McGregor, an unlicensed cornermen, from the cage.

Goddard and McGregor had to be held apart by the fighters and members of the backroom team, we know this is what he's all about but these ugly scenes could have surely been avoided.

But publisher Activision has now revealed some numbers that highlight exactly how well the World War 2-set shooter is performing. In comparison, it sold twice as many units at launch compared to last year's Infinite Warfare .

Once Ward landed that coup de grace and Redmond went crashing down to the mat, McGregor scaled the cage and went over to congratulate Ward on the win.

Even after he exited the cage, McGregor wasn't done.

McGregor and Goddard have bit of history together, dating back to last month's UFC Fight Night 118 when McGregor's teammate Artem Lobov fought Andre Fili. "Act professional", Goddard could be heard telling McGregor. He shouldn't have been in the cage at all, let alone in the cage celebrating and putting his hands on a referee.

McGregor could be in hot water for his behavior Friday. A most definite no-no that usually draws fines and/or a suspension of some sort.
