“IF YOU CAN keep your head – and pose for a selfie – when all about you are losing theirs” is not quite the opening line of Rudyard Kipling’s If but it does apply to Conor McGregor this evening.

The Irish fighter had just left the stage at the press conference to officially launch UFC 178 when all hell broke lose between the Jon ‘Bones’ Jones – widely regarded as the best pound-for-pound fighter in MMA – and Daniel Cromier.

As the fight fight broke up, McGregor can be seen laughing at the ridiculousness of it all before agreeing to pose for a photo with a fan.
