Conor McGregor shoves referee after jumping into ring at Bellator 187

McGregor, 28, twice pushed Goddard and needed to be restrained multiple times while attempting to chase after him.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you're well aware that McGregor mad his much anticipated professional boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather back in August.

Conor McGregor was cageside at Friday's Bellator 187 event at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland supporting several of his teammates, including middleweight Charlie Ward who earned a knockout victory over John Redmond.

McGregor, who was not a licensed cornerman at the event, scaled the cage as part of a celebration - before the bout's conclusion, according to Mazzulli.

In that case, McGregor quickly complied.

It sparked a melee as McGregor himself came back and retaliated by pushing the referee, shouting and pointing at him before he was escorted out of the octagon.

Since then McGregor has said he will look to return to his usual sport of MMA in the UFC for his next fight, but has left the door open to a future return to the sweet science.

McGregor and Goddard have been at odds before. Walking around the cage side wherever and whenever he wanted.

"Viacom and Bellator hold the safety and well-being of our staff in the highest regard and we're now reviewing the situation".

McGregor is now planning his return to UFC having not fought in MMA for a year. It is unclear if "The Notorious" will be penalized for Friday's incident. Presumably, they will be encouraging those entities to take action against the SBG fighter.

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

"I was trying to say, "keep going".
