    Default McGregor / Diaz press conference ends in chaos

    I'll share the link to show you how this ended, and ask the question:" Are these things staged to promote the fight, or do the two participants, these two especially, hate each other that much??"

    I think Diaz is emotional, and McGregor is calculated in this stuff. McGregor came half an hr late to just mess with Diaz’s head. And because Diaz is a basket case he leaves early because he’s fed up.

    McGregor knows how to poke the bear so to speak, and loves the spot light and won’t back down. Diaz is just a guy who wants the respect, and if you disrespect him he’ll hate you.

    This is bang on.

    I will definitely be out watching this one. Hope it lives up to the hype.

    Any predictions, guys?

    I say McGregor gets his revenge and KOs Diaz in the 2nd round.

    Hey, what's a great rivalry without a rubber match, right?

    I'm not a fan of either guy and both kind of rub me the wrong way, but I want McGregor to win and then stay the hell away from the heavier weight divisions (and shut his mouth about this experience). Time for title defence. If McGregor loses, wow, the King is dead? I somehow doubt that he'd quit, but it would be quite the blow to his image (and ego which is what drives this guy I'm sure). One thing is for sure, I enjoy watching McGregor's fights. Too bad the UFC doesn't do tag team events because those Diaz brothers would be awesome together!

    It's staged... they're trying to hype a fight.

    I think Diaz will win easily... again. McGregor has always been way overhyped.
