After hundreds, if not thousands of cusses volleyed back and forth and a potential dirty, sneaky punch during a press conference show-down, the potential for a scuffle between Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor at the UFC 196 weigh-ins was higher than Nick Diaz on April 20. Luckily for everyone that’s looking forward to the fight, Nate and Conor were separated before they could fully face off.
Nate yelled some more expletives and flipped Conor the bird, but Dana White and roughly 50 other staff and security members intervened before anything drastic could happen. Joe Rogan spoke with both fighters separately, and Nate said it was “kill or be killed.”
In the only actual bit of fun at the weigh-ins, long time jokey jokester and antic man “Filthy” Tom Lawlor stepped onto the scale with a brand new collection of ink. Sporting stick-on Conor McGregor tattoos, including “McLawlor” on his stomach, Lawlor brought some humor and levity to the situation before Diaz and McGregor turned everything into SERIOUS BUSINESS, I AM GOING TO KILL YOU, YOU B*TCH MOTHERF*CKER, RAR!
UFC 196 is live only on pay-per-view, so you better watch these two fist fight each other for real!
