In a wild scene, Conor McGregor made an appearance at Bellator 187 in Dublin, Ireland today and ended up getting into a confrontation with a referee.

Charlie Ward, who is one of McGregor's teammates and trains at SBG Ireland, defeated John Redmond in one of the show's main card fights. McGregor then hopped the cage to celebrate with Ward, and he ended up getting into a confrontation with referee Marc Goddard and shoving him.

Bellator quickly put out video of the incident:

McGregor had previously been admonished by Goddard at last month's UFC show in Poland when McGregor was getting too close to the Octagon during Artem Lobov's fight against Andre Fili.

A video posted by TMZ also shows McGregor slapping a Bellator staffer during today's show. Bellator released a statement about the altercation: "We’re 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.”

Bellator 187 will air on Spike TV at 9 p.m. Eastern time tonight.
