Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz met at the UFC Gym in Torrance, C.A. today to sip tea and eat tiny cakes and cucumber sandwiches, and maybe gossip about their favorite TV shows.
Ha. Not. They met for the UFC 196 presser, which was revamped from its original open-workout format (when McGregor was going to fight lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos) to one that put the spotlight – and the microphone – squarely on the two dudes in the UFC who excel the most at talking crap.
And they did!
But it was subdued compared to what’s gone on the past. Where McGregor would have insulted and riled up Jose Aldo, he was instead admitting that Diaz had balls and was “not a pussy” like the rest. The Irishman did promise to smash Diaz, and Diaz accused everyone in the UFC of being on steroids, but whatever.
Below is their faceoff. Note how no one is throwing punches or getting shanked. Below that is the video of the presser. Enjoy!
