Everyone knew Conor McGregor’s UFC 196 fight with Nate Diaz would include quite a bit of trash talk. However, with that being said no one could have predicted that a fan would take things this far.

A fan posted a photo of himself wielding an AK-47 on Twitter along with several Tweets warning McGregor to “be careful” following the UFC 196 press conference Wednesday afternoon.

The UFC contacted their security team and made McGregor’s security team aware of the situation. In addition the FBI is now investigating the threat.

Stay tuned for more details as they become available leading up to the big fight on March 5th.
