UPDATE: Watch the WILD staredown between Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz that almost erupted into a chaotic brawl!
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will gather the cast and crew of the upcoming UFC 196 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place this Sat. night (March 5, 2016) in Las Vegas, Nevada, for a special pre-fight press conference. The live video streams later today (Weds., March 3) at 4 p.m. ET in the embedded player above.
Expect some foul language.
McGregor was originally expected to face Rafael dos Anjos for the Brazilian's 155-pound strap; however, a late injury forced him from the card and paved the way for Diaz -- complete with F-bombs -- to step in on short notice. Also in attendance at today's presser will be UFC women's bantamweight champion Holly Holm, who makes her first title defense against perennial division contender Miesha Tate.
