Conor McGregor could be in a whole lot of trouble.

Once Ward landed that coup de grace and Redmond went crashing down to the mat, McGregor scaled the cage and went over to congratulate Ward on the win.

If you weren't planning on watching Bellator's tape delayed fight card from Dublin on Friday night, you may want to rethink your plans now that Conor McGregor is part of the show.

The pair came face-to-face again and McGregor had a few choice words for the official.

McGregor and Goddard have been at odds before.

Three people were injured after a auto rammed through a group of students in front of a college in the French city of Toulouse. In the wake of the incident, Interior Minister Gerard Collomb tweeted that "Support for injured young people in Blagnac".

McGregor could be in hot water for his behavior Friday.

McGregor was restrained. He screamed and pointed in Goddard's direction while chaos surrounded him inside the cage. Once the knockout blow landed, McGregor sped towards the fence, leapt into the cage and had a confrontation with referee Marc Goddard, the same official who warned him at UFC Gdansk.

It is not immediately clear whether McGregor will face any disciplinary action by the UFC or a regulatory body.

Not only was McGregor out of line in breaking cageside protocol for the second straight time, he certainly crossed the line by getting physical. He made his massively hyped professional boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather in August. The UFC is now in negotiations regarding McGregor's potential return to the UFC in December, according to recent comments by president Dana White.
