WATCH: Another UFC Weigh-In…You Know the Drill By Now
UFC welterweight champion Conor McGregor will defend his belt against challenger Nate Diaz on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
However, if it was up to the two fighters, they would have settled things right then and there at the weigh-in on Friday afternoon.
Trash talk, threats and physical violence erupted during the duo's weigh-in for the bout, in which the Irish McGregor (19-2, 17 KO's) will face off against the American Diaz (18-10, 4 KO's).
Everything was fair game in the expletive laden war, with McGregor insulting Diaz's fighting style and fashion sense in the span of minutes. A joint interview, televised on the American sports channel Fox Sports 1, had to be held in separate rooms.
As for the weigh-in itself, McGregor weighed in at 155 lbs., while Diaz, a late substitute for the injured Rafael Dos Anjos, weighed in at 169 lbs.
UFC 196 goes down tonight, with the women's bantamweigh title between current champion Holly Holm and challenger Miesha Tate slated to go down as well. Broadcast on pay-per-view, coverage is scheduled to begin at 10 pm. '
