VIDEO: Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz Staredown Nearly Erupts Into a Massive Brawl

In what should come as a surprise to absolutely noone, Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz were not able to keep things civil at yesterday’s UFC 196 press conference. In the evening’s staredown, Diaz put his fist a little too close to Conor’s face for the Notorious one’s liking, and McGregor responded by punching — not slapping, punching — Diaz’s hand out of his face.

What resulted was a bench-clearing skirmish that — had we been in Nashville — would have almost certainly resulted in the featherweight champion getting curb stomped.

After the jump: A full video of the skirmish with actual sound, plus McGregor and Diaz’s profanity laced interview on Fox Sports Live that followed.

Seriously, have you seen how deep Diaz’s crew rolls? I don’t care how many pool noodles Ido Portal brings to the equation, McGregor and poor Artem were lucky that there were about a dozen armed police officers and Dana White’s bodyguard on hand.

After their scuffle, the UFC 196 headliners appeared on Fox Sports Live for a dual interview and if you think it was anything less than gold than you have clearly been in a coma for the past week or so.

McGregor: “His bum wrist will never be the same.”

Diaz: “No one knows what a gazelle is anyway.”

I am giddy like a schoolgirl right now, you guys.
