Charlie Ward & Conor McGregor

Charlie Ward makes this list with a little help from his friend and teammate Conor McGregor.

After being released from the UFC, Ward found a home in Bellator MMA. It didn’t take long for Ward to have his first official fight for the Viacom-owned promotion, making his debut just three months later at Bellator 187 in Dublin, Ireland.

Ward earned a TKO victory over John Redmond with one second left in the opening round.

But it was difficult to tell what exactly was transpiring in the cage afterward. Shortly after Ward knocked down Redmond a man in a dark hooded sweatshirt stormed the cage and tackled Ward. It took a few moments for everyone to realize that the man in the sweatshirt was Conor McGregor.

Referee Marc Goddard didn’t care for the actions of McGregor and ejected him cageside. That didn’t deter MMA’s biggest star from doing whatever he wanted, however, as he jumped on the cage like the madman he was following his payday with Floyd Mayweather.

To top it off, he slapped the security guard who told him to get down to cap off what was legitimately one of the biggest post-fight meltdowns in MMA history.
