Current UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor is set to fight Eddie Alvarez for the promotions lightweight championship in the main event of tomorrow’s UFC 205 fight card in New York. However, that didn’t stop “Mystic Mac” from getting into it with other fighters today before weigh ins.

As most of you already know, the brash Irish superstar shared a heated moment with current UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley earlier this morning, which eventually led to the two champions trading barbs on social media.

However, things didn’t stop there for “Mystic Mac”. As you can see in the video below, McGregor found time to get into it with top lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov backstage at the weigh ins later this afternoon.

If Conor McGregor is to defeat Eddie Alvarez and Khabib Nurmagomedov can get past Michael Johnson at tomorrow’s UFC 205 event, the pair could likely meet in the octagon very soon.

How do you think a bout between “The Eagle” and “Mystic Mac” would play out? Sound off PENN Nation!
