UFC 196 can’t come soon enough.
The big event is scheduled to take place on Saturday night, and that’s a good thing, because otherwise, Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz may kill each other before their epic matchup even begins in the Octagon.
It’s been a pretty eventful last few weeks thus far since Rafael dos Anjos backed out, with Diaz ripping McGregor on Twitter, and a crazy presser with plenty of banter last week.
The most recent presser featured even more excitement, when McGregor and Diaz nearly came to blows during the face-off. Diaz put his hand right in McGregor’s face, and the Irishman responded by slapping him. And then things got a bit heated, quickly.

You shouldn’t have poked the bear, Mr. Diaz. Good luck on Saturday.
