The UFC used every damn precaution they could to keep the weigh-ins from not erupting into complete chaos. No teams were allowed into the arena and even Nick Diaz was escorted out by the police. There wasn’t a water bottle to be found. Screw that, UFC said, you’ll have to hydrate back at the privacy and sanctity of your own damn hotel. It still didn’t matter. The momentum is here. It was lit.

The flinch is still noticeable, or was it expert reflexes? These guys want to destroy each other, that much is evident, maybe even more than last time. McGregor straight up says he wants to “kill” Diaz and his whole team. Diaz’s response? He already killed McGregor. It’s a new dude now. Kill or be killed again. …USA, motherfuckers.
Watch both post-weigh-in interviews below.
