    it was so weak it wasn't even a push it was like when you tap somebody on the back to get their attention like "hey look at me when im talkin to u boiii"

    The real question is how much should bellator have to pay connor for the fat ratings boost he gave them. I get the west coast tape delay screw job and never watch bellabore cause sports that aren't live arent exciting.. but i watched skimmed through this one cause i read about what happened.

    The sensible thing is #4. Reality says #1 or #2, though.

    Well, since you watched this one rushing the cage, assaulting referee and commissioner is all good.

    I say 3 and 4. Criminally speaking, its not like he would spend jail time or anything but there needs to be some consequence because he's gotten some sort of God complex at this point. I get the hype and why people love him. I've been a fan myself but I'm sort of tired of him thinking the world is at his feet and he can do what he wants. He needs to be put in his place. If not, he's going to keep getting worse and the needed consequences will have to be more severe. Better to deal with him now. He's out of control.

    Yep, ironically if he gets away with this, he will get more wild and will get himself into some real trouble down the line and his fucking bodyguards won't save him.

    Did he do ANOTHER one of his FAKE rushing in "somebody hurry up and hold me back" things?
    Really boring at this point.

    Holy fuck!!!

    A rational McGregor fan?!?!?!?!?! I mean... I heard they existed, but I never believed it until now. I just thought they were like mermaids and unicorns.

    I am impressed Sir. You are a reasonable fan.

    Yes, except he had his bodyguards rough up his victims.

    I find it funny that people think because it was in Dublin or at a Bellator event that this incident won't have ramifications for the UFC. Dana drawing the hard line in the sand with Nelson over a fighter putting his hands on a ref doesn't give him a lot of wiggle room either. If the UFC doesn't take a stance against or condemn Conor's behaviour, the media and the individual state athletic commissions will take notice, and they can in fact, make things difficult for the UFC.

    Why should an SAC sanction events when the organization itself doesn't ensure the safety of the appointed officials? No one will deny that Conor sells PPV's and tickets or that he makes money for x/y/z, that's not something that's in doubt or a point to debate. The issue at hand is whether or not some type of punishment is warranted. Conor is supposedly a mature adult and a "professional", and yes, he is absolutely responsible for his actions. Cocaine, alcohol, fame, stress, happiness... none of these are excuses nor do they justify his behaviour.

    Jumping into the Bellator cage is one thing. Was he allowed to do it? Should he have done it? Was it funny or exciting? The reality is, it doesn't matter.

    Marc Goddard had turned from Conor and was walking away and Conor ran him down and pushed him. That was not a "heat of the moment" reaction, or an accidental contact. After being ejected from the cage, Conor leapt to the top of the cage again and punched/slapped another Bellator official when they tried to get him down. That is two separate incidents and technically, can be considered two separate assaults. The other person actually getting physically hurt as a result isn't a mitigating factor.

    Conor being banned from attending future Bellator events is pretty much a given, but additionally I don't think Conor gets away with just a fine in this case.

    He interfered with the refs doing their job. The footage of the guy that may have been concussed being pushed to one side because of conors interference is pretty awful. He should be suspended and fined considerably. Goddard hasn't warranted all of this shit and it puts him in a bad position when He s trying to act professional.

    Conor need a to reign it in and stop being such a dickhead

    All the haters want to see him banned for no reason. Nonetheless, it won't happen. They'll probably whine about Conor getting treated unfairly, Conor will face Tony KO him, they'll go in a deep depression, then claim Khabib as their next savior and the cycle will repeat itself.

    It's hard to say cause we don't have all the facts.

    If he isn't a licensed corner man and isn't a currently licensed fighter in Ireland what control do they really have over him at that point??? I think you could argue it won't be much different then a fan jumping in the cage and going nuts.

    No doubt he is going to get a stern talking to but if he isn't currently holding any licenses I'm not sure they can do much.

    No reason? Are you this delusional? Be honest, are you living vicariously thru Conor? How pathetic is your own life? Just curious.
