Well, it has certainly been a fiery build up to UFC 202, and thanks to the Embedded series fans have barely missed a beat.
Following bottle-gate and Nate Diaz’s walk-off from the 202 press conference, Conor McGregor was notably pissed off and, as reported by MMA Fighting, the cameras caught his backstage rage on film.
Check it out:
A fired up McGregor – who was late to the presser it has to be said – can’t seem to understand Nate’s logic in walking away.
But when you are going up against the best mouth in the fight game, finding a way to prevent them from using it could actually be a very shrewd move.
Having taken some time to digest Nate and brother Nick’s hardman act, ‘The Notorious’ made his feelings known at his open workout with an expletive message for Team Diaz, and their fans…
Fuck team Diaz, and if you’re down with team Diaz then fuck you too.
Saturday night (August 20) is shaping up to be one hell of a rematch!
