Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz Nearly Come to Blows at UFC 196 Press Conference (VIDEO)

This Saturday, March 5, UFC Feathwerweight champion Conor McGregor goes one-on-one with Nate Diaz in a non-title main event. However, the two opponents nearly came to blows at the press conference for the big show!

Granted, it’s not all that surprising how heated the confrontation between McGregor and Diaz got, since the pre-fight photo op involves a staredown that can quickly go crazy. UFC President Dana White found himself in the middle of all this, with cameras flashing and security rushing to get between the two fighters. If this is any indication, UFC 196 is going to be a total madhouse. With an undercard that includes Bantamweight champion Holly Holm defending her title against Meisha Tate, this is already looking to be the biggest card of the year so far. Watch the press conference brawl along with the full press conference video below:
