After Ward won, McGregor leaped into the cage to celebrate with his friend. Veteran mixed martial arts referee Marc Goddard and security tried to remove him from the cage because McGregor wasn’t a licensed corner man for Ward. After getting into Goddard’s face, McGregor was led from the cage by friend Artem Lobov.
Here’s another angle:

If I’m security I do exactly what they did. For all they knew it was a random guy jumping into the cage and attacking Ward, rather than celebrating. There are rules about this stuff for a reason.
Then McGregor came back, jumped onto the cage and slapped one of the security guards on the head:
Yeah, Conor has some explaining and apologizing to do.
