Conor McGregor ‘Jeopardized’ Health of Participants, ‘Assaulted’ Referee – President Mike Mazzulli

Conor McGregor’s Frenzy At Bellator 187

On Friday night’s there were some incredible fights at Bellator 187, but it was UFC fighter Lightweight champ Conor Mcgregor found himself embroiled in yet another controversy after appearing to attack MMA referee Marc Goddard.

McGregor violently stormed the cage to celebrate the victory of his teammate Charlie Ward, who finished John Redmond at the Dublin card.

When referee Marc Goddard intervened to restore order, as Mcgregor was not a licensed cornerman, not allowed to be inside the cage-he shoved referee Goddard and even slapped an official Mike Johnson in the face.

Here you can rewatch it:

Mike Mazzulli, a President of the Association of Boxing Commissions and Combative Sports, released an official statement about the last incident via MMAjunkie:

“While the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation (MTDAR) was regulating Bellator 187 in Dublin, Ireland, on November 10th, 2017, the following events took place during the Ward vs Redmond bout. Mr. Conor McGregor who was a spectator at the time, disrupted the event by scaling the cage prior to the conclusion of the bout. Mr. McGregor’s conduct jeopardized the health and safety of the bout participants by delaying necessary medical attention to the fighters that were injured during the round.”

“In addition, Mr. McGregor assaulted Referee Mark Goddard and a Bellator staff. The MTDAR has been in consultation with the upper management of the UFC regarding Mr. McGregor’s inappropriate and unacceptable behavior. The MTDAR has also contacted members of the Association of Boxing Commissioners that have licensed Mr. McGregor in their jurisdictions to inform them of Mr. McGregor’s behavior.”

Commissioner also said any sanction would have to come from a commission that licenses McGregor.

Many fighters have reacted to Conor’s movements, take a look at some of the best ones here:

UFC up and comer Colby Covington making some big statements:

Dan Hardy was quick to obliterate McGregor

Former Bellator champion Will Brooks had a say

Goldy becomes the only man to call McGregor inside the UFC and Bellator!

Derek Brunson spreading rumours?

What do you think? Did Conor cross a line here?

He’s a douche

Bud Anderson

Used to have an interest in Connor. Now he’s nothing more than a punk.

Brandon Curtis
Guest

Fire him ,cocky overpaid punk

Ben Baker
Guest

Should fire the ref for worrying about people celebrating and not the health of the downed fighter

William James
Guest

Bullshit us Irish are just hyped people! And he has every right to be cocky! He came from nothing and made something of him self don’t hate on success!

Kevin R Grace
Guest

Doent mean he has to be a dick everyday and make it all about him.

William James
Guest

True, I can see your point.

Kevin R Grace
Guest

I’m Irish too lol! I know we get hyped!

William James
Guest

I’m curious If there was more to the story, like if he had beef already with the ref before the fight.

Darren Nomberg
Guest

William James no, he’s just an attention seeker. This has nothing to do with being Irish, or being “hyped up”. Anybody can get hyped up. He acted like an idiot, and I’m sure he’ll apologize for it. No one’s hating on his success, people are hating on his idiotic behavior and him thinking he can do whatever he wants, he CAN’T. And eventually he’ll learn that.

Vincent Corey Vizina

Bullshit he put himself on welfare to train. He came from nothing my ass. And the only difference between him and any other champion before him is he figurwd out he can make more money by acting like a dick. Hes nothing special.

Yuri Van Sweevelt
Guest

Screw Connor oke,his money doesnt give him the right to act like an asshole…they should ban him for life now,would be the best lesson for this idiot..

A.j. Magana
Guest

William James, I’m American and I agree with you. He’s not an average Joe and he was amped. The ref shouldn’t have put hands on him but he was overall unprofessional for jumping in, though if my boy had just won a big match I’d be hard to control from entering too

Ben Baker
Guest

Right he obviously jumped in to celebrate with his close friend and the red neglected to check on the fighter and would rather worry about them celebrating a victory that’s on the ref

Ben Baker
Guest

Also this wasn’t him making it all about him anyone who says that is retarded. He was excited for a guy he is bringing up under his wing how is hat anyway about him. The ref is the one that made it about Connor.

David Ladehoff
Guest

Are absolutely or completely retarded

James Haverlin
Guest

Darren Nomberg him acting like a idiot as u say and his cocky ways got him the mayweather fight, it was all his self promoting not his skills,, just like Monte Balls father with his son in the NBA, otherwise he would just be another fighter who had a nice run

Darren Nomberg
Guest

James Haverlin what’s ur point? Balls kid is in jail in China, why? Because his father’s an idiot. Not a marketing genius. Talent gets u in the NBA. Not a goofy dad that we all laugh at. And because of his dad, lonzo has a target on his back. That’s why Beverly was all over him when he guarded him. Connor is a great fighter, but he needs to learn how to not act like a clown.

James Haverlin
Guest

Darren Nomberg dummy I’m saying they both act like clowns to get attention and make more money,, but their are guys just as good as them but they Market themselves … and a lot of idiots out there buy into it!

James Haverlin
Guest

Darren Nomberg my point is there are guys who are great but quiet and the idiots get attention.. example Odell Beckham and Julio Jones, both very good, but 1 carries on and the other doesn’t, ask the average person who barely follows football if they have heard of them, more will know OBJ

Hope he get punish for what he did he is a retard and this is unacceptable…

Vincent Corey Vizina
Guest

He needs his license revoked

Nick Hallett
Guest

Sue him. Seriously. If that was an average Joe fan ….he’d b arrested and banned from all future events. In addition, he becomes the story, the fight ( sweat, tears, hours training, the outcome and spotlight thereafter ) becomes background noise to a selfish or non consequential easy act for this untouchable, cash cow cuddled fighter in order to flash egotistical need. A complete disrespect for the disciplines involved .

Ben Baker
Guest

He jumped over the fence to celebrate with his close friend and teammate the ref should have worried about the downed fighter not worried about yelling at McGregor and he isn’t a average joe fan he is a MMA champion and it was his close friend and teammate. If he wanted to celebrate with him fucking go for it. The douche in this situation is he ref

Troy Schuck

Ben you’re clueless, it’s against the rules, you have no argument.

Matej Crnjac

Tyler Scott
Guest

Always McGregor fans to defend this fucking wankers mistake teamate or not you dont jump into the cage and come from behins to grab a fighter then assault two officials and disregard the health of another fighter

Peter James Green
Guest

He’s a bum sack him

Peter Portlock
Guest

Anybody else would be in jail

Ben Baker
Guest

Yeah but it’s not anybody else it’s an MMA champion and he was trying to celebrate with his close friend and teammate. The ref should have been worried about he downed fighter not the two celebrating a crazy victory.

Louis Valenzuela
Guest

if it was any other fighter, Dana white would of made a huge speech about its unproffesional and he dosn’t want people in the UFC like that.. and hed fire him lol

Ben Baker
Guest

If it was any other fighter the ref would have let him celebrate with his friend and teammate

Ben Baker
Guest

Also why is the ref worried about the celebrating and not worried about a downed fighter. That’s on the ref

Paul Gabler
Guest

Dana didn’t say anything because it was Bellator, not the UFC

Troy Schuck
Guest

Ben again it’s against the rules … you have no argument … you must be a little slow I understand.

Ronald Hicks

Remember the last fighter who pushed a reef. He was in sooooo much shit. Connor needs to be given the same treatment

Ronald Hicks

Fake

Ben Baker

How is it fake lmao dumbass

Tommy Hutson
Guest

Ever heard of marketing dickless?

Ben Baker
Guest

He jumped into the ring and was removed it happened it’s not fake dumbass lmao. What’s fake is the idea it was a marketing stunt you’re a tool.

Tommy Hutson

Poor Dickless Ben Baker . I am guessing you still have your WWF action figures?

Maria-atai Daniela

Vito Peppers

Very poor decision making on Conor’s.

Ben Baker
Guest

Please he jumped in to celebrate with his friend the ref should have checked on the downed fighter instead of worrying about connor

Paul Gabler
Guest

Ban him from fighting… fuck him, he’s a fool

Ryan O
Guest

He’s a piece of shit.

Kevin Reed
Guest

He’s an attention whore. Don’t buy into his shenanigans to stay in the limelight.

Frank Parillo
Guest

The Ref should have thrown an overhand right and a left hook to finish this little pipsqueak off. In case this kid forget, he lost the biggest fight of his life.

Nick Osborn
Guest

What an ass

Tommy Reyes
Guest

Suspend the little Irish Coont for 1 year to start.

Michael Baumeister
Guest

No class

Justin Flex
Guest

This goofball already got his ass handed to him by Mayweather without Mayweather even trying or breaking a sweat. He’s all hype and isn’t even half as “tough” as all these kids think he is. The UFC turned into the WWE with certain fighters being promoted over others solely because of their personalities.
