CONOR MCGREGOR TURNED up at Bellator 187 in Dublin's 3 Arena to support his SBG team-mate Charlie Ward but, once again, it's the UFC lightweight champion who will be making the headlines.

McGregor and Goddard have history, with the official telling the Irishman to leave the area when he was cheering and giving instructions to a team-mate at a UFC event in Gdansk earlier in the year.

The event is set to air Friday night in North America on a tape delay and Bellator is already using video of the incident to promote their product.

Ward walked away with a first-round knockout win over Team Ryano's John Redmond, but the focus was all on McGregor after the fight.

Public Interest Research Group , which tested 12 brands of fidget spinners found on the toy shelves of Target stores nationwide. The group is calling on Target to stop selling the items and issue recalls for the ones they've already sold.

Even after he exited the cage, McGregor wasn't done.

When Goddard told McGregor to get out of the octagon - the doctors and cornermen of the defeated fighter had not yet entered - McGregor went after him, pushed him, and shouted abuse in the well-respected referee's direction.

With the two embracing, referee Marc Goddard moved to divide them. McGregor continued yelling and kept trying to get at Goddard. McGregor attacked Goddard, having to be physically restrained by others in the cage while seemingly continuing to verbally attack the referee.

UFC officials had yet to comment on McGregor's actions at the time of publication. Despite the numbers surely not to be anywhere near what McGregor and Mayweather did in their boxing match, the Irish star believes the UFC can make him happy in a matchup against Ferguson.
