Conor McGregor is at the center of another story. Though, we shouldn’t be too surprised by now. This one hits a little closer to home, however. Literally.
Friday in Dublin, Ireland, Bellator 187 would take place. And at the event, Charlie Ward—an SBG Ireland teammate of McGregor—would earn a victory, pushing his record to 9-3.
With it, the UFC superstar reacted as any teammate would. Pure jubilation. Perhaps to the point of being over the top. Then again, it wouldn’t be any other way for McGregor now would it?
What happens next is what makes this entire thing ugly.

Being excited about your teammate, your friend? That’s all well and good. But going into the Bellator ring and shoving an official is another matter entirely. That’s crossing the line.
The Irishman continues to cross the line, however. Moreover, he knows and understands the power he holds. Now what happens next is up to the UFC.
What do you think? Is a punishment on its way?
