Conor McGregor’s fists and loudmouth persona have finished him one of a top paid fighters in a world. On Saturday, however, his moneymaking attributes warranted him plenty of ridicule from many in a churned martial humanities village when he got into it with a arbitrate during a Bellator eventuality in Dublin on Friday.

Among McGregor’s biggest critics is Mike Mazzulli, boss of a Association of Boxing Commissions and Combative Sports, an entity that helps classify MMA and fighting events in a United States and Canada, where McGregor does many of his veteran fighting.

“Mr. McGregor’s control jeopardized a health and reserve of a hitch participants by loitering required medical courtesy to a fighters that were harmed during a round,” Mazzulli pronounced in a matter (via MMA Fighting).

McGregor’s antics came after his training teammate, Charlie Ward, knocked out competition John Redmond in a final seconds of a initial turn during Friday night’s Bellator 187 eventuality during 3Arena. Before a quarrel was finished official, McGregor jumped over a enclosure to applaud extravagantly with Ward. From there, a eventuality descended into chaos.

Referee Marc Goddard immediately attempted to partial a teammates and send McGregor, who was not a protected cornerman and therefore not authorised to be in a cage, behind to his seat. However, McGregor did not take pleasantly to Goddard attempting to lift a dual teammates detached and immediately began to beef with him.

It took during slightest dual some-more officials to reason behind McGregor as he swatted and shouted during Goddard, who was bustling perplexing to establish a condition of Redmond, who remained crouched on a mat. McGregor seemed not to notice Redmond in a m�lange and even roughly stepped on him during a fracas.

According to those on scene, things would get even nuttier. McGregor finished adult breaching a enclosure a second time after slapping a Bellator staffer who was trying to assistance chaperon him out.

Mazzulli, who used a tenure “assaulted” to report McGregor’s actions opposite Goddard and a staffer, pronounced a fight’s controlling body, the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation, has “been in conference with a top government of a UFC per Mr. McGregor’s inapt and unsuitable behavior.”

“The MTDAR has also contacted members of a Association of Boxing Commissioners that have protected Mr. McGregor in their jurisdictions to surprise them of Mr. McGregor’s behavior,” Mazzulli added.

Whether McGregor’s actions will have consequences depends on a UFC and a Nevada and New York commissions that have protected him to fight. Those parties could slap a cessation on him — or in a box of UFC — cancel his contract, nonetheless a latter seems unusually doubtful given McGregor’s pay-per-view draws.

UFC President Dana White has not commented on McGregor’s behavior, but he once dismissed a warrior for mistreating a referee.

“You don’t ever, ever [expletive] hold a referee, ever. You’re finished here,” White pronounced (via MMA Junkie) during a time, justifying a 2014 occurrence that saw UFC cut a ties with Jason High after he shoved a arbitrate following a loss.

The biggest disproportion in High’s situation, however, is that High shoved a UFC referee. McGregor’s occurrence on Friday concerned no UFC officials or staff.

McGregor, a stream UFC lightweight champion, final fought for a UFC code in Nov 2012. His many new quarrel came in a fighting ring in a detriment opposite Floyd Mayweather Jr. in August. McGregor, who has not commented on a Friday incident, has pronounced his subsequent quarrel will be with a UFC.
