You know what would be weird? If Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz had a press conference and they DIDN”T scuffle. Which I guess makes yesterday’s UFC 196 gathering – which put the featherweight champ and the TUF winner on stage and had them get within close proximity of each other in anticipation of their Saturday night clash – par for the course.
Yup, they scuffled, with Diaz putting his fist in the Irishman’s face and McGregor punching it. Chaos ensued, with Diaz’s teammates (including Jake Shields) rushing the stage and security and police reacting frantically.
Below is the video, and since the weigh-ins are today, and McGregor and Diaz will again be put close to one another, expect some fireworks!
