Conor McGregor

GETTY Conor McGregor UFC lightweight champion

Ward knocked out Redmond in the final seconds of the first round, before McGregor jumped into the cage to join in the celebrations.

One problem - Conor wasn't allowed in the cage since he wasn't a licensed cornerman for Charlie.so Goddard and several security staff members stepped in to interrupt their bro moment.

After the fight when McGregor went over to Ward, Goddard pulled him away from the fighter.

But Conor wasn't done. he came back, climbed back on top of the cage and straight slapped one of the guards upside the head.

She is then said to have started a fight after discovering evidence he was cheating on her, the Times of India reported. The flight departed and continued its journey to Bali while the family spent the day at Chennai airport.

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. Ward's opponent, middleweight John Redmond, was knocked over during the melee.

Accoring to Petesy Carroll of MMAFighting.com, McGregor could be heard shouting "that was a fucking stoppage" as he attempted to return to the octagon.

So, what disciplinary action should/will McGregor face?

This isn't the first time that McGregor's involvement in a teammate's fight has vexed Goddard. Even more, he brought attention to Bellator MMA, UFC's chief rival. The fight, which reportedly moved between four and five million pay-per-view buys, saw McGregor pocket a $30 million guaranteed purse and may have tripled that number after receipts were counted. He made his massively hyped professional boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather in August. Bellator 187 will air in its entirety tonight on Spike TV at 9pm ET.
