UFC champion clashes with referee at event in Dublin

Two-weight UFC champion Conor McGregor may face punishment after jumping into the octagon and pushing a referee at an MMA event in Dublin.

The Irishman was watching his team-mate Charlie Ward fight John Redmond.

McGregor entered the octagon at Bellator 187 to celebrate Ward’s first-round win and was ordered to leave by referee Mark Goddard.

Goddard briefly made contact with McGregor, who responded angrily and had to be restrained by security.

The 29-year old pushed Goddard and proceeded to shout and point at him before being escorted out of the octagon.

McGregor, who was beaten by Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match in August, has not fought in the UFC since knocking out Eddie Alvarez in November last year.
