Dana White: Conor McGregor smacked Jose Aldo's back in Toronto and the champ went 'crazy'

First he stole Jose Aldo's belt, and now Conor McGregor has laid hands on the champ.

That's according to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White, who told Fight Network that "The Notorious" one smacked "Junior's" back prior to a scheduled morning show in Toronto as a part of the UFC 189 World Tour, and the champ was not too happy about it.

White's words (via MMAFighting):

"He's trying to put Conor McGregor in a seat behind [Aldo] and Conor McGregor reached over and slapped Aldo's back. And now Aldo is crazy and doesn't want to do most the stuff we have to do today. It's been fun."

With yet another staredown in Toronto this afternoon -- and plenty more on the horizon -- can the rivals compose themselves prior to their July 11, 2015 date at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada?

Or will we see another brawl a la Jon Jones vs Daniel Cormier?

With McGregor expecting to shatter UFC records with the UFC 189 pay-per-view (PPV), nothing is out of the question.
