Bellator 187 highlights: Charlie Ward's TKO set off a Conor McGregor fiasco

Conor McGregor provided the most buzz-worthy moment on Friday at Bellator 187, but the actual sanctioned fighting had some highlights, as well.

While McGregor, the UFC lightweight champion set off a melee earlier on the card, the event, which took place at 3Arena in Dublin and aired via same-day delay on Spike, saw some familiar names in the action.

In the headliner, A.J. McKee (10-0 MMA, 10-0 BMMA) continued his undefeated pro run – and moved to 10-0 while fighting exclusively for Bellator – after putting featherweight Brian Moore (10-6 MMA, 1-2 BMMA) to sleep. McKee endured a nasty cut and a rally from his opponent, but he ultimately got the fight-ending rear naked choke in the third round.

Also on the card, Sinead Kavanagh (5-2 MMA, 2-2 BMMA), who missed weight for the 140-pound catchweight affair, nonetheless made quick work of Maria Casanova (3-6-1 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) en route to a 34-second TKO win.

Additionally, in a 161-pound catchweight fight, “Baby Slice” – Kevin Ferguson Jr. (2-1 MMA, 2-1 BMMA) – submitted Fred Freeman (1-1 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) in less than two minutes.

And in the main-card opener, middleweight Charlie Ward (4-3 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) scored a first-round TKO win over John Redmond (7-13 MMA, 0-1 BMMA), though his teammate, McGregor, set off this scene (via Twitter):
