Video: Crazed Conor McGregor jumps the cage at Bellator 187, restrained by officials

New, comments

For all of you snobby mixed martial arts (MMA) fans who think you’re too good to be watching Bellator MMA, you’re missing out on some entertaining action.

From a UFC fighter.

Reigning UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor was in attendance at the Bellator 187 event earlier today (Fri., Nov. 10, 2017), and decided the best way to celebrate fellow Irishman Charlie Ward’s win over John Redmond in Dublin, Ireland, was to jump the cage and go berserk.

Seeing is believing:

There’s more:

Wild.

McGregor is no stranger to post-fight controversy, particularly in fights that are not his own. Earlier this year, the fiery Irishman circled the Octagon and tried to corner teammate Artem Lobov at UFC Fight Night 118, before getting the boot from referee Marc Goddard.

More on that drama here.

Not surprisingly, the crowd ate it up and McGregor rewarded their cheers by taking a victory lap around the cage. In other words, just another day in the life of “Notorious.”

Hopefully he saves some of that energy for this.
