Conor McGregor Tweeted And Deleted a Response To The Weekend’s Bellator Antics

Conor McGregor has broken his silence on his… eventful… appearance at Bellator 187 on Friday. 

The UFC Champ caused uproar when he jumped into the ring and attempted to attack the referee.

McGregor burst into the cage to celebrate his team-mate Charlie Ward’s apparent victory, but was stopped by ref Marc Goddard. 

Chaos ensued with McGregor lashing out at the respected referee, before slapping a Bellator official when he was removed from the ring. 

The response was overwhelmingly negative, with many calling for the sportsman to face the consequences of his actions. 

Now, the Notorious himself has taken to Twitter to respond to the incident, and despite the backlash, he doesn’t exactly seem remorseful. 

He wrote: 

‘Bloke KO’d on floor bout a minute straight and ref trying to say fight’s not over, Conor. That’s when I lost it. F*** yous all.’

The tweet was deleted shortly after it was published.
