Raw video: UFC 205's Conor McGregor beefs with Khabib Nurmagomedov backstage, calls Tyron Woodley a 'b*tch'

Conor McGregor is making enemies wherever he goes. Not only is the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight king moving up in weight to challenge Eddie Alvarez tomorrow night (Sat., Nov. 12, 2016) at UFC 205 live on pay-per-view (PPV) from Madison Square Garden in New York City, N.Y., but the Irishman is creating beef with current welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, who will defend his title opposite Stephen Thompson in the co-main event. The two UFC champions already ran into one another earlier today (Fri., Nov. 11, 2016) at UFC 205's early weigh ins.

Well, McGregor yet again ran his mouth when he encountered Woodley backstage earlier this evening (shown above) before stepping out from behind the curtains for UFC 205's official weigh ins. The Irishman can be heard slamming Woodley and calling him a "pussy and then a "bitch." The welterweight champion did little in response.

Luckily for fight fans who love the behind-the-scenes banter, McGregor did not stop at Woodley. The potential future lightweight champion also went after the 155-pound division's No. 2 contender, Khabib Nurmagomedov, who meets Michael Johnson on UFC 205's preliminary card.

At this point, nobody is off limits for the 28-year-old Irishman. As a fighter who is on the cusp of competing in three different weight classes in the span of just 12 months, McGregor feels obligated to cover all areas of verbal domination. But before he can ever get his hands on Woodley or Nurmagomedov, he needs to get past Alvarez at UFC 205.
