Even Conor’s Head Coach Thinks He Crossed The Line With Bellator Antics

UFC megastar Conor McGregor caused an incident at Dublin, Ireland’s recent Bellator 187. Now it would appear that SBG Ireland head coach John Kavanagh has come forward with his thoughts on the matter.

McGregor was cage side for the event in support of his teammate Charlie Ward, though “Notorious” was not cornering for the fighter. After Ward earned a knockout over his opponent, McGregor stormed the cage.

The UFC lightweight champion would go on to enter an altercation with referee Marc Goddard and slap a commissioner in the face before tackling Charlie Ward to the ground in excitement.

Appearing on TV3, John Kavanagh explained that he believed Conor McGregor was acting “emotional” and “went over the top.” But, McGregor believed the fight was over. The head coach then explained that he believed the situation was understandable considering the fighters’ relationship.

Severe MMA’s Sean Sheehan recently took to Twitter to report the news:

“John Kavanagh on TV3 just now said McGregor was ’emotional’ and ‘went over the top.’ Says Conor thought the fight was over. He says he thinks it’s understandable because of Conor’s relationship with Charlie.”
