Nate Diaz didn’t say it, but he couldn’t have been overly impressed with UFC 202 opponent Conor McGregor’s lateness at today’s pre-fight press conference.

McGregor showed up approximately 30 minutes after and that’s  when the emotions flared between the two and their camps.

Diaz was fairly cordial during the actual press conference, answering questions and giving McGregor credit as “a good fighter and talker.”  Things changed when McGregor arrived, as evidenced around the 19-minute mark.

UFC president Dana White quickly wrapped up the conference after the antics.

McGregor and Diaz will clash in the main event of UFC 202, which takes place Saturday, August 20th from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
