McGregor, Diaz nearly come to blows in action-packed presser

The excitement continues to build ahead of UFC 196, with Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz having to be separated after a heated face-off.

McGregor took exception to Diaz putting his fist in the Irishman’s face, and UFC chairman Dana White was forced to step in between the pair as their show of aggression got out of hand.

That wasn’t the only drama-filled moment at the pre-fight press conference as McGregor and Diaz, as one would expect, traded insults throughout. McGregor quickly moved to his favourite Diaz jab – making fun of the American’s comparatively miserly earnings…


Not for the first time, McGregor has had to fight a replacement after his original opponent pulled out due to injury. So who would be McGregor’s ideal opponent? That’s an easy one: himself.

It was endless entertainment in Las Vegas which is best summed up in this clip…
