The moment the UFC announced that Nate Diaz was going to replace Rafael Dos Anjos against Conor McGregor at UFC 196 on March 6, we knew the smack talk we were about to witness would be epic. And in their first press conference a mere 10 days away from the fight, the two lived up to expectations, throwing accusations of steroid use and promises of violence across at each other.

McGregor swung back and forth between voicing his appreciation for Nate accepting the fight and disdain for the Diaz brother getting out of shape between matches. You can actually hear Nate’s brother Nick in the background yelling at Conor in anger. “Relax, Nick!” McGregor called out. “He’s doing good, he’s doing good up here.”
