Conor McGregor got a little attention at UFC Fight Night 118 in Poland. 

During the preliminary card for UFC Fight Night 118, Conor McGregor's teammate Artem Lobov faced off with Andre Fili.

During Lobov's bout, McGregor could be seen screaming encouragements and instructions to Lobov even though he was not in Lobov's corner. UFC tweeted an image of McGregor and called him "coach." 

Eventually, the referee Marc Goddard warned McGregor about his distracting behavior. Goddard paused the fight in order to tell McGregor to reign in his enthusiasm. McGregor replied with "my bad" however McGregor was still seen shouting and pacing near the cage. 

Lobov was defeated in a unanimous decision by Fili. Lobov's record fell to 2-4 in the UFC and 13-14-1 overall in mixed-martial-arts. Fili improved his UFC record to 5-4 and his overall record to 17-5.

McGregor has not fought in UFC since he won the UFC Lightweight Championship at UFC 205 and McGregor currently has no return bout scheduled.
