Conor McGregor storms cage to celebrate with teammate, confronts referee Marc Goddard at Bellator 187
Conor McGregor jumped the cage fence to celebrate with his teammate Charlie Ward after he dispatched John Redmond in the final seconds of the first round at Bellator 187 in Dublin. After celebrating with the former UFC fighter, McGregor appeared to approach referee Marc Goddard — the same official who ordered him to leave cageside as he cheered Artem Lobov on at UFC Gdansk.

Matt Brown having second thoughts about retirement heading into UFC-Norfolk
Matt Brown is only a couple months removed from telling the world his UFC Fight Night 120 co-main event against Diego Sanchez would be his final walk to the cage.

Georges St-Pierre hands his new middleweight belt over to wrestling coach
It hasn't even been a week and Georges St-Pierre has already given up his middleweight belt. Just not in the way you'd expect.

Stephen Thompson’s coach: No interest in fighting Darren Till at this time
Hold the phone on any talk of Stephen Thompson vs. Darren Till just yet. On Tuesday night, Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times reported that UFC president Dana White said he wanted to book the welterweight fight in England next year. However, Thompson’s father and coach, Ray Thompson, told MMAFighting.com that “Wonderboy” possibly has two broken thumbs, or ligament damage, stemming from his win over Jorge Masvidal this past weekend at UFC 217. Thompson is scheduled to see a doctor Thursday afternoon in South Carolina. “We’ve talked to no one [about fighting Till],” Ray Thompson added. “Not sure how this is a ‘done deal.’ As for Till, he needs to fight through the murderers row at welterweight like ‘Wonderboy’ did to get to the top."

Freddie Roach would prefer Georges St-Pierre move back to welterweight after beating Michael Bisping
Georges St-Pierre did the improbable Saturday night. He came back from four years away, moved up 15 pounds in weight and defeated Michael Bisping to win the UFC middleweight title. At UFC 217 in New York, “GSP”, a longtime former welterweight champion, became just the fourth UFC fighter to hold titles in two different weight classes. It cemented him on the short list of best fighters of all time, if not made him the consensus greatest ever. His future, though, remains uncertain. The UFC wants him to unify the middleweight title with interim champion Robert Whittaker next. And St-Pierre has said that is written into his contract. But many, including his boxing coach Freddie Roach, still think he’d be better off back to welterweight.
