Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz do not like each other, that much is clear heading into their clash and this weekend’s UFC 202. The pair had their pre-fight press conference on Wednesday and let’s just say it went about as you would expect.
First, McGregor showed up nearly 20 minutes late, then he and Diaz immediately verbally sparred with one another. At that point, Diaz got up and walked off. As he made his way towards an exit, Diaz and McGregor continued yelling at each other, then Diaz launched a water bottle in the Irishman’s direction. McGregor then responded by hurling one of his own and things devolved from there.
A clearly angered Dana White could be heard saying “That’s a wrap, I’m out of here” in the midst of the mayhem.
Below is video of the press conference starting when McGregor showed up. The language is very NSFW so consider yourself warned:
McGregor was restrained from going after Diaz and security stepped in to prevent Diaz’s entire team from going after McGregor.
White then took the mic and said “Sorry guys, see you Saturday.” He was clearly not happy.
