Conor McGregor & Nate Diaz Hurl Water Bottles at Each Other During Press Conference (Video)
Now that’s how you sell a fight.
On Wednesday, the UFC 202 press conference was being held at David Copperfield Theater & ended prematurely as Nate Diaz & Conor McGregor began throwing water bottles at each other.
“After Diaz answered a handful of questions alone because McGregor arrived nearly 30 minutes late for the session at the MGM Grand, Diaz stormed off the stage minutes after McGregor appeared and began answering questions.
Security officers who watched the scene play out told the Los Angeles Times that Diaz’s older brother, Nick, a former UFC welterweight title challenger, helped instigate the melee by urging his brother to leave.
As Diaz and an entourage of more than 20 friends left the David Copperfield Theater, Diaz and McGregor began shouting expletives at each other, and then the Diaz group began launching plastic drink bottles that appeared full in the direction of McGregor and his friends.”
Nate Diaz & Conor McGregor go head-to-head on Saturday at UFC 202 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
