While Conor McGregor's return to the Octagon remains unknown amid a one-year layoff, the UFC's lightweight champion continues to make headlines around the cage.

McGregor sat ringside for Charlie Ward's fight against John Redmond, and "The Notorious" was so excited for his teammate's victory that he climbed into the cage to tackle him.

The UFC's biggest star just gave the UFC's biggest competitor, Bellator MMA, some invaluable publicity. Seconds after Ward won, McGregor hopped into the cage to celebrate with Ward but then he got into a physical altercation with referee Marc Goddard.

The Bellator 187 event took place Friday evening in Dublin and is scheduled to air on tape delay in the US on Spike TV.

I can't wait until he conveniently forgets about that quote when he's asked about McGregor's latest incident.

McGregor eventually left the cage as the chaos simmered down, but immediately after leaving through the cage door, he went for a run around the cage and pumped up the crowd.

The UFC star was involved in a insane altercation in the cage with referee Marc Goddard at the event in the 3Arena. "Act professional", Goddard could be heard telling McGregor.

McGregor and Goddard have bit of history together, dating back to last month's UFC Fight Night 118 when McGregor's teammate Artem Lobov fought Andre Fili.

UFC officials had yet to comment on McGregor's actions at the time of publication.
