Conor McGregor only just recently had a run in with referee Marc Goddard when he made an appearance at UFC Fight Night Gdansk to support his team mate Artem Lobov. Goddard was forced to pause the fight in order to tell McGregor to return back to his seat for shouting advice to Lobov from cage side during the fight.
Conor McGregor also slapped a commissioner tonight as he was told to get down from the cage. Not good.
