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. And that's when things escalated.
After Goddard stepped in and advised the UFC lightweight champion to leave, McGregor's excited demeanor quickly changed to one of anger.
As Peter Carroll of MMAFighting.com notes, McGregor has a history with Goddard. He eventually got to Goddard and continued to point his finger at him and Goddard slightly pushed him again.
The man known as "Notorious" took exception to these actions and retaliated by going after Goddard and shoving him as the latter attended to Redmond - who was still on the mat.
