It went 0-100 real quick Wednesday afternoon when the UFC 202 press conference for Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor spiraled out of control. With a whole a lot of F-bombs, middle fingers, cans throwing and Dana White saying “Sorry guys, see you Saturday” fans left the press conference in shock after what took place between Diaz and McGregor.
The press conference went under way with all the fighter from the co-main event and the main event in attendance except McGregor. McGregor showed up late as usual and when asked why he was late McGregor responded by saying ” I thought the press conference started at 1:30, but I am here now”. Everything seemed to be going smooth until Diaz who had just been asked a question about a third fight with the Notorious one if he were to lose Saturday, abruptly got up and left the stage as McGregor was giving his response. As Diaz was walking through the crowd with his camp Diaz yelled “F**k your whole team, how about that”. The two began to exchanging words with McGregor screaming “You’ll do f**k’in nothing! Get the f**k out!” Things went out of control when it appeared someone from Diaz team threw a bottle and caused McGregor to lose his cool. McGregor than grabbed every bottle on stage and threw it towards Diaz and his team. Dana White tried to stop McGregor but nothing was working at this point. The press conference ended with Dana White telling the crowd “Sorry guys, see you Saturday” and just like that the conference was over. No word yet on if anyone involved will be punished but one thing is for sure, Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz just brought some extra heat to Vegas!
