Conor McGregor’s pissing contest with the UFC is not over yet. At the UFC 202 pre-fight press conference, roughly 72 hours before he fights Nate Diaz, McGregor made the most noise by no-showing the start of the media event. A disputed Dana White played the role of UFC dad and wasn’t mad at McGregor but he was disappointed at the Irish champ not respecting people’s time.
Serious beef. Nothing worse than the Dana White “serious angry” face. Well you thought McGregor showing up late was to mess with Diaz; until Diaz one-upped him by walking out out the event in the middle of one of his answers.

I'm told Team McGregor is about 10 mins away.

Then all hell broke loose. Out of nowhere Nate Diaz disses Conor McGregor. Then Diaz runs off stage like a Stockton mad man. McGregor was left alone at the podium with a mic in his hand and proceeded to curse out Diaz as he exited the building. Diaz wasn’t having it and flipped off McGregor. This set both teams off and an all out water bottle tossing contest broke out.
A Stockton vs. Dublin water fight? Sure why not?
Nate Diaz just stormed out of the press conference with his whole crew. Tons of middle fingers. Swearing at McGregor the whole way.
