The UFC 205 press conference proved to be highly entertaining for the fans, with Eddie Alvarez and Conor McGregor almost getting into a physical altercation on the stage to match their war of words.
A lot was made of what went down, a lot of people may have enjoyed McGregor’s antics when he danced his way in and snatched Alvarez’s lightweight title, or when Alvarez took the featherweight gold.
ENTERTAINING PRESS CONFERENCE
Others enjoyed his choice of fashion, where the Irishman donned a mink coat with a red turtleneck, to go hand in hand with his outlandish personality.

You can’t be blamed for choosing the chair incident as your favourite moment either, where the Irishman just about stopped himself from launching it at the lightweight champion, as he already received a hefty fine for his bottle-throwing episode with Nate Diaz earlier this year.
However, most of the attention during that altercation fell on somebody who wasn’t even in the middle of it all.
Usually, when a tussle breaks out on stage, other fighter’s sit there twiddling their thumbs and smiling awkwardly at the fans and press, waiting to continue.
Not Tyron Woodley.
RECORDING THE ACTION
In almost every video you’ll watch regarding the press conference, you’ll see the current welterweight champion from the corner of your eye on the left-side, doing fans at home a huge favour.
Rather than sitting there and watching, Woodley whipped out his phone quicker than a student in a high school about to record a fight during a break, and provided the fans with a great alternative angle to what was going on.
The clip, which he uploaded to his Instagram and Twitter accounts, shows how Alvarez was goading the Irishman into hitting him after failing to throw the chair, only for Dana White to step in the way to keep them apart.
It didn’t disappoint either, captioning it: “How you act when u know somebody gone break it up! @thenotoriousmma @ealvarezfight #ufc #ufcpresser #ufc205 #ufc05”
Maybe we need Tyron on stage next time a fight breaks out.
