"In addition, Mr. McGregor assaulted Referee Mark Goddard and a Bellator staff (via MMAJunkie)".

It's not the first time McGregor has got himself into hot water in a watching brief.

The fighter made his boxing debut back in August when he lost to Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas but last fought in the octagon when he defeated Eddie Alvarez in November.

He wasn't as gracious Friday when Goddard appeared to touch his chest while instructing him to leave. But he then shoved Marc Goddard when the veteran referee tried to have the UFC lightweight champion removed from the cage while medical personnel tended to Redmond.

In footage sent to Balls.ie, McGregor details what he said to Goddard in the cage.

McGregor and Goddard do have some previous. He then walked around the outside of the cage while waving to fans.

It seems there is still plenty of interest from professional boxers to get one Conor McGregor back into the boxing ring.

"Viacom and Bellator hold the safety and well-being of our staff in the highest regard and we're now reviewing the situation".

UFC officials have not commented on Friday's incident. Presumably, they will be encouraging those entities to take action against the SBG fighter. The promotion may have released Jason High for pushing a referee in 2014 but they are a business, not a regulatory body and they will surely be reluctant to heavily sanction their cash cow. "I'm going to cut him. You're done here. He's been apologizing on Twitter, but he's done".

Conor McGregor will jump at any opportunity to fight inside the ring.
