At UFC Gdansk, Goddard was forced to warn McGregor for attempting to coach Lobov from the crowd during his unanimous decision loss to Andre Fili.

Not only was McGregor out of line in breaking cageside protocol for the second straight time, he certainly crossed the line by getting physical.

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

As McGregor was not permitted to step into the ring since he was not a licensed corner man for Ward, several fight officials stepped in to interrupt the celebration. When he did so, referee Marc Goddard had some words with McGregor and appeared to direct him out of the cage.

In that case, McGregor quickly complied.

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.

It sparked a melee as McGregor himself came back and retaliated by pushing the referee, shouting and pointing at him before he was escorted out of the octagon.

"We're aware of the in-cage altercation involving Conor McGregor and a Bellator staff member". He then walked around the outside of the cage while waving to fans.

At one point he appears to push Goddard against the cage with the melee lasting for nearly a minute. It is unclear if "The Notorious" will be penalized for Friday's incident.

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