Considering the animosity generated by UFC 196 headliners Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz already, you had to expect something was going to go down at today’s press conference. If you guessed that they would scuffle during the face off, you would be correct.
Diaz put his arms way out and in Conor’s face as he usually does. McGregor then swatted away his arm, which enraged Diaz and he tried to go after him, but was held back by multiple people. Even brother Nick Diaz waded into the action a bit.
