Conor McGregor seems to be picking fights with just about everyone this week. From trying to throw a chair at Eddie Alvarez during the UFC 205 press conference, to staring down Tyron Woodley and exchanging insults on social media, McGregor was all over the place during fight week.

It continued on during the ceremonial weigh-ins, where he had backstage altercations with multiple fighters. First, he came up to the UFC welterweight champ in Woodley and hurled more insults for being on his “camera phone”.

“Pussy! You’re like a woman with that phone,” McGregor told Woodley. “You f—-ing b-tch!”

He then had another altercation, this time with lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov. It is unclear who started this specific situation, but security had to get between the two men to prevent it from escalating.

Woodley recently spoke about the weigh-in staredown with McGregor, saying he probably just did that to get people talking.

“He thought it was an opportunity to get a little internet buzz,” Woodley said. “He has this big charade and this big mystique about him, so he can’t just stop there — he gotta out-do the next thing every time.”
