Wednesday afternoon in Las Vegas, Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor briefly appeared on stage at the UFC 202 pre-fight press conference.

McGregor, who was nearly 30 minutes late to the event, joined Diaz on stage for just moments before Diaz got up and walked out of the event. He was joined by his entire team who began yelling insults at McGregor.

In the moments following the incident, Nate Diaz’s teammate and ESPN analyst Gilbert Melendez shared some inside info on the situation after speaking with Nate.
