Queally and McGregor are long-time buddies and coaching companions and the UFC star was in attendance at Bellator Dublin to assist a number of SBG team-mates.

SBG Ireland have been out in pressure on the struggle night time, with headlining the cardboard and scoring a 35-second submission victory over Roman Salazar.

Queally vs Scope was a stand-out conflict on the undercard and there was drama in the primary spherical as Queally was dumped to the canvas by his rival.

Bellator officers can have had flashbacks to November 2017 when McGregor pressured his approach into the cage and threw a punch at one in all their referees following Charlie Ward’s victory over John Redmond.

There was no such drama this time spherical and a smiling McGregor had no qualms about getting some blood on his white swimsuit after embracing Queally.
