McGregor, in street clothes, jumped into the ring to celebrate with Ward, his teammate. When Goddard tried to get him the fuck out of there, McGregor followed him and gave him a shove. It was a bit surreal to watch McGregor get pinned to the fence as he bumped into a dazed Redmond:

McGregor returned and was stopped at the top of the fence by another official. McGregor tried to smack him and was escorted from the ring.
