Wednesday afternoon the UFC held a UFC 196 press conference in California after the announcement that Nate Diaz would be stepping in on short notice for Rafael dos Anjos.

As many expected, McGregor and Diaz got into some pretty heated verbal exchanges with Diaz even accusing McGregor of using steroids.

At the conclusion of the press conference the two men had their first staredown ahead of their scrap on March 5th. Catch the pictures below!
