Video: Conor McGregor turned on by the stench of Dustin Poirier's fear

I almost forgot there was another fight taking place at UFC 178.

For once, Conor McGregor was not the center of attention.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is on tour this week to promote its upcoming UFC 178: "Jones vs. Cormier" mixed martial arts (MMA) pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place on Sept. 27, 2014 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

And to say things started off with a bang would be an understatement.

But while UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was rolling around on the floor with division number one contender Daniel Cormier (see it again here), McGregor was on hand to help generate buzz for his upcoming showdown against Dustin Poirier next month in "Sin City."

See their staredown pic here.

What's interesting is how both featherweight fighters (and budding contenders) are convinced the other is a fraud, but only one of them will be proven right when they step into the cage on fight night.
