Conor McGregor gets into it with Woodley, Nurmagomedov backstage

UFC featherweight Conor McGregor is a man on a mission in New York City this week.

McGregor faces lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez in the main event of Saturday night’s UFC 205 as he attempts to become the first fighter in UFC history to simultaneously hold belts in two weight classes.

But McGregor is also letting it be known that he is not afraid to step up to anyone on the UFC roster.

And we mean anyone.

Earlier in the day, McGregor crossed paths with UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley. McGregor squared up to Woodley and tried to give him the mean mug.

At the ceremonial weigh-in that night, McGregor and Woodley once again crossed paths and had to be separated by security. McGregor appeared to be upset that Woodley filmed and posted a video of the press conference chair incident on social media.

And that wasn’t all.

Not only did McGregor try to get in the face of the welterweight champ, he also got into a backstage confrontation with top lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov, who could earn a title shot with a win on Saturday.

Geez, Conor. Take a deep breath.

With the biggest fight of his career set to take place on the biggest stage in the sport’s history, are we starting to see McGregor crack? Only time will tell when he steps into the cage with Alvarez in just over 24 hours.
