AFTER THE UFC 202 press conference was cut short when Nate Diaz stormed out, the latest episode of Embedded gives a behind the scenes look at McGregor’s reaction.

McGregor, who was late to the press conference after he was allegedly given the wrong time, branded Diaz a  ”little fool” for not sticking around.

“I’m gonna kill your man. I’m gonna bleedin’ burst your man”, the Notorious shouted.

The tension between the pair escalated as they threw insults back and forth, with McGregor’s temper eventually bubbling over when he started throwing water bottles at Diaz.

Afterwards, McGregor said that: “His big brother called him off the stage and little Nate junior went runnin”.

Diaz, however, seemed to just be sick of McGregor’s company: “He walked in like he was the show, but when I left the show was over.”

Not everybody was convinced, however. Featherweight fighter Artem Lobov thought the fight looked “as fake as Pamela Anderson’s tits”.

Fake or not, it seems from the video that McGregor and Diaz are counting down the minutes until they can finally be let at each other in the ring again.

This Saturday’s fight will be the second time McGregor and Diaz face off, with Diaz beating The Notorious earlier this year. McGregor was confident during the press conference, however, that this would be a trilogy of fights.

The video also visits the fighters in the co-main event, Anthony Johnson and Glover Texeira, who seem to have a much calmer relationship.

“He’s a warrior. I’ve respect for him”, said Johnson during an open work-out.

Texeira is looking forward to facing Johnson. “I know Anthony Johnson is in good shape. It’s going to be exciting”, he said.

The video is the latest in the UFC’s Embedded miniseries, which is leading up to UFC 202 in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
