Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz had a scheduled press conference promoting UFC 202 with other fighters on the card. McGregor was very late and once he began answering questions Diaz left and says, “F – – – your whole team, how about that.” Conor McGregor then responds back with similar language as Diaz walks out of Dvaid Copperfield Theater with his camp.
The press conference is abruptly ended by Dana White once Diaz’s camp has fully left the theater and Conor McGregor has been restrained and snet back behind teh curtain.
Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor have had some very heated exchanges in the past outside of the octagon so it is not a surprise that emotions boiled over at this press conference. When Diaz and McGregor began throwing things at each other it instantly brings to mind the press conference brawl between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier, which ultimately led to a postponed fight date. Dana White can be heard yelling, “Conor don’t throw that!” as McGregor goes to pick up a Monster Energy can.
