Scenes as McGregor jumps into cage at 3 Arena

McGregor sat ringside for Charlie Ward's fight against John Redmond, and "The Notorious" was so excited for his teammate's victory that he climbed into the cage to tackle him. A highly emotional McGregor charged in the direction of referee Marc Goddard, who attempted to break up the champ' embrace with Ward.

The UFC star was involved in a insane altercation in the cage with referee Marc Goddard at the event in the 3Arena.

Another video has surfaced on Twitter showing McGregor continuing his bad behaviour after the earlier incident.

"We're are aware of the in-cage altercation involving Conor McGregor and a Bellator staff member", the statement read.

McGregor had a few words for Goddard when they met again in Dublin for Bellator.

McGregor then returned to the cage, where he played up to the crowd before slapping an official.

For the second time in less than a month, Conor McGregor and referee Marc Goddard had issues with each other during an global fight card.

Not only was McGregor out of line in breaking cageside protocol for the second straight time, he certainly crossed the line by getting physical.

McGregor was knocked out by Floyd Mayweather during his pro boxing debut in August. He could later be seen skipping around the cage and jumping back on the fence briefly before being rebuked by a commission official, whom McGregor slapped across the face for his efforts.
