Conor McGregor

UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor has sparked a huge controversy after being involved in an angry altercation with a referee at an MMA event here.

Despite the Irishman been comprehensively beaten inside the distance by Floyd Mayweather back in August.

Conor McGregor faces an anxious wait to discover the repercussions of an ugly flashpoint with a referee at the Bellator 187 event in Dublin last night.

One problem - Conor wasn't allowed in the cage since he wasn't a licensed cornerman for Charlie.so Goddard and several security staff members stepped in to interrupt their bro moment. Last month, as another of McGregor's teammates, this time Artem Lobov, fought at a UFC event in Poland, Goddard asked McGregor to leave the cage area.

In that case, McGregor quickly complied.

McGregor then tried to run back into the octagon and when stopped again, swung a punch at Bellator staff member Mike Johnson.

Hotels within five-star restaurants (room rent above Rs 7,500) will attract 18 per cent with ITC benefits. At present, while manufacturers pay GST at 2 per cent, the rate for restaurants is 5 per cent.

McGregor was so vocal and animated during Lobov's fight with Andre Fili that Goddard paused the action in the cage to give McGregor a tongue-lashing. He then walked around the outside of the cage while waving to fans.

One can expect McGregor (21-3) to face serious discipline for putting his hands on an official, which could jeopardize his return date, which UFC had hoped would be December 30 for the promotion's New Year's Eve weekend card in Las Vegas.

UFC officials have not commented on Friday's incident.

McGregor is now planning his return to UFC having not fought in MMA for a year.
