You might’ve seen the highlights of the sledging going on at the most recent UFC 196 press conference. Today you get to watch that whole segment unedited, uncensored and with all the colour of two men who want to beat each other to a pulp.
Conor McGregor is one of the most formidable (and richest) UFC fighters today and he made that clear at the pre-match media showing alongside his opponent, Nate Diaz.

McGregor didn’t hold back, taking shots at Rafael dos Anjos for pulling out of the fight, at Aldo and Frankie Edgar for not stepping up to take Anjos’ place, and at Diaz for picking fine hairs over the weight limit.
McGregor continued to mouth off at Diaz for attacking his public persona before a fight.
“I like Nick’s little bro. How can you not like him?” taunted McGregor.
“He’s like a little cholo gangster from the hood but at the same time he coaches kids jiu-jitsu on a Sunday morning and goes on bike rides with the elderly. He makes gun signs with the right hand and animal balloons with the left hand. You’re a credit to your community.”
Diaz promptly fired back claiming that McGregor’s status means nothing to him.
“Fuck you, fuck your belt,” said Diaz. “I don’t give a fuck what you say, motherfucker. Fuck your bitch-ass belt, too.”
