GETTY Conor McGregor UFC lightweight champion

McGregor continued to pursue Goddard, all while being held back and feverishly pointing his finger and yelling at him before the UFC lightweight champion was escorted out.

It's not the first time McGregor has got himself into hot water in a watching brief.

McGregor was knocked out by Floyd Mayweather during his pro boxing debut in August.

REFEREE Marc Goddard has broken his silence after his altercation with Conor McGregor in chaotic scenes at a MMA event in Dublin.

As McGregor was not permitted to step into the ring since he was not a licensed corner man for Ward, several fight officials stepped in to interrupt the celebration. McGregor was there to support featherweight Artem Lobov and was told by Goddard not to walk around the cage during the fight.

In that case, McGregor quickly complied. That's when McGregor snapped and began shouting at Goddard and even shoved him as he went to check on Redmond who was still down on the mat.

Lions rally past winless Browns 38-24 at Ford Field
The Browns' formula when the season started was to play good defense and run the ball; to win conservatively, or at least try to. Prior to his exit, Kizer had completed 15 of 24 passes for 178 yards and a TD, while adding seven carries for 57 yards and a TD.

McGregor and Goddard have been at odds before.

The Irish superstar then appeared to push Goddard up against the cage as he angrily shouted in his face.

It seems there is still plenty of interest from professional boxers to get one Conor McGregor back into the boxing ring. Presumably, they will be encouraging those entities to take action against the SBG fighter. UFC President Dana White says they are trying to put a fight together for him before the year is over. You don't ever, ever (expletive) touch a referee, ever. Mr. McGregor's conduct jeopardized the health and safety of the bout participants by delaying necessary medical attention to the fighters that were injured during the round.
