Wednesday afternoon in California, the UFC held the UFC 196 press conference at a UFC gym in California following the announcement of Nate Diaz filling in for Rafael dos Anjos in the main event.
During the course of the press conference Diaz and McGregor were involved in some pretty heated verbal exchanges that saw McGregor call Diaz a ‘cholo gangster’ and Diaz even accuse McGregor of taking steroids.
After the event McGregor spoke to a TMZ reporter who asked if his ‘cholo gangster’ comment was racially motivated. McGregor didn’t like that too much and went off on the reporter.
