Bellator 187 went down today, Nov. 10, in Dublin, Ireland. McGregor’s teammate Charlie Ward competed on the day’s main card in a match up against John Redmond. “Notorious” was cage side cheering on his teammate, as the UFC lightweight champion was not a cornerman for Ward today. After Ward earned a first round TKO victory over his opponent, chaos erupted.
Conor McGregor stormed the cage, slapped a commissioner, had an altercation with referee Marc Goddard and sent the entire Dublin crowd on their feet in surprise. Now Bellator MMA has come forward with a statement concerning the recent incident. Speaking to MMA Junkie, the promotion stated:
“We are aware of the in-cage altercation involving Conor McGregor and a Bellator staff member. Viacom and Bellator hold the safety and well-being of our staff in the highest regard and we’re currently reviewing the situation.”
